2015 k1300s tpms

The front tire pressure monitor shuts off after about 50 miles triggering the yellow caution light. Does anyone have any experience with this? BMWs price for this part is an outrageous $240.00 !. Ive seen this part for sale on EBay for about $30.00. I know its a Chinese knock off, but has anyone tried one of them?

I have a chinese sensor in my front tire, used motoscan app and a obd2 adapter along with this to program it in the bike.

Had it since midsummer i think it was. Battery was dead but simple 10 minute job to replace, resealed with hotglue. There are several online guides and videos on the job, uses a cr 2052 battery.

Well, I ordered the sensor and the tool you used to program it in. I guess it is now on the Slow Boat From China.

The tool is for activating it, you also need the motoscan app and a obd2 reader and adaptercable.

Well, the tpm and tool arrived. So far, about $22.00. While examining the tpm, I noticed something very odd. The brand name “Schrader” was on it. Schrader is also the brand on the receiver on the bike. The TPM appears to be identical in every way to the $225.00 item in the parts fische. There were complaints from some members of the BMW MOA forum about buying high priced bearings from the dealer with BMW on the box and CHINA on the bearing. I can only assume that our over priced high quality, German made motorcycles are assembled with Chinese parts, as are some of the F series bikes. Rant over.
