Tyre pressure monitors, or RDC or whatever BMW choose to call it!!!
I'm after some words of wisdon regards TPM or RDC or whatever acronym it goes by. I was out in the rain today on my K1300GT, riding along at a rather sedate pace due to it raining so hard i couldn't see, and I rounded a left hand bend and got the red warning triangle flashing at me. I checked my instrument cluster and there are 2 pressures displayed for front and back tyre pressure, one was reading 2.4 bar and the one on the right which i assume to be the rear tyre was reading 1.9 bar. I assumed there was a problem so slowed and stuck the flashers on, rode on very slowly due to having nowhere to stop. after a couple of hundred yards I found a layby pulled in and checked everything only to find that the tyres seemed to be ok. After switching the ignition off and then back on, it seemed to go back to normal service and the pressures displayed were 2.3 and 2.8. Has anyone any idea what may have caused this minor hiccup. I've kept an eye on the pressures and 2 and a half hours later all seems to be well...Any info much appreciated. Didn't call on BMW as I felt it might just be a glitch rather than a fault. If it had continued to misbehave there's no doubt i would have called them out instead!!!
