Thanks for the replies. I've got my first service coming up, so I'll ask the dealer and see if I can get it done for free... Those buggers!
Sweet ride Sheep, love the wheel colour!
Yeah, the TPMS system is a bit too fancy for my liking too. I tried to read up on it after once taking the tire pressures manually, which didn't match what the computer said, to figure out what the heck was going on, and it said how "The tire inflation pressures are shown temperature compensated", and this bloody complicated way of figuring out what your gauge says vs. how much you really have, and how much to add...
The tire inflation pressures are
in the multifunction display;
they refer to a tire air temperature
of 68 °F (20 °C). As the airpressure
testers at filling stations
show a temperature-dependent
tire inflation pressure, they do
not match the values indicated in
the multifunction display in most
Adjusting inflation pressure
Compare the TPC/RDC value in
the multifunction display with the
value on the back cover of the
Rider's Manual. The difference
between the two values must be
compensated with the air pressure
tester at the filling station.
Example: According to the
Rider's Manual, the tire inflation
pressure is to be 36.3 psi
(2.5 bar), however 33.4 psi
(2.3 bar) is shown in the
multifunction display, i.e. it is low
by 2.9 psi (0.2 bar). The tester at
the filling station indicates 34.8
psi (2.4 bar). This value must be
increased by 2.9 psi (0.2 bar) to
37.7 psi (2.6 bar) to produce the
correct tire inflation pressure.
