Oddity with Tire Pressure Sensor
Ever have a tire pressure sensor issue? On a hot day, I mean over 100, in the sun, the bike was so hot I could not touch the levers to move it into the shade. On starting the bike it faulted indicating 0 psi in the front tire. Pressure was fine, but I suspect it was the heat...after the evening progressed (cooled) the problem resolved itself. Odd.
The only curious thing is how could heat (I don't know the design) be the issue....or am I grasping at the obvious...which isn't so obvious. Either way it's intermittent (1 session) and bound to get you the "It cannot happen" look from a service manager.
However, even though the tire was fine, it was amazing how big a distraction that flashing triangle is. On older K's you could take it (the ABS at least) out of flashing in your face mode for a period of time. I will have to bring electrical tape with me if this happens again. Isn't some technology an annoying attempt to idiot proof the planet? That's why I have the Velocette, it don't need no stinking sensors.
