Tire pressure sensor

Hello all! Does anyone know how to access the tire pressure feature on a k1200 gt with the on board computer? I cannot seem to find the function no matter which buttons I press.
I know that you must be underway to access it but pressing the BC button doesn't bring up the display. Any ideas?

For the Onboard computer :
You repeatedly press the off/run/off lever around the starter button until the "BC" label is displayed along with the logo and current pressures.


For display while underway:
Speed has to be over 20mph. Press the LEFT function button on dash repeatedly until the tire logo and current pressures appear.

Gotta ask... are you certain that the bike is equipped with the TPM feature? Not all are.

A legit question...you might start blaming BMW needlessly IF you are looking for an option that was never installed.....

Press the on, off lever? I have rotated it back and forth with no results. Am I missing something?

Yes I am sure...any ideas? I have been told to press the on off lever...not sure what that means....the lever rotates around the start button, but does not bring up the tire pressure.

Need some more info...did it work at one time and now doesn't, or has it never worked? If the tire pressure indication never appears when cycling through the BC display and you are certain the bike is equipped with TPM then about all you can do is check to see that the TPM module (under the seat) seems to be connected properly. If so then there isn't much else to do but let a dealer look at it (or if you have access to a GS-911 you could see whether it recognizes the TPM module as being present or if it has any fault codes stored.)

Thank for the ideas...Time to have it checked out. I recently had a topcase installed and I am wondering if the wires that they tapped for the rear light it has interfered with something. They tapped the main harness under the passengers seat coincidentally...
