TPMS Sensor
« on: December 30, 2017, 12:13:30 am »
I bought a 13 about a month ago. The rear pressure has never shown, i figured the battery died in the sensor. Turns out the sensor isnt even installed. Can i buy a used one or do i have to get new?

Curiosity on my part (i.e., not knowing), so if the sensor is missing then your screen is blank in the area where it would typically report the psi, yes? Wondering if this is the case vs some error msg popping up too. Thx.

Thats exactly what happens. I just have a blank space where the rear psi number should be. I found a used sensor on eBay. Its the old style ( like my front sensor). It has all the info still on the sensor. Will it work?

Maybe, but only if it is the correct frequency, has a good battery within and is registered to your bike's ECU with KDS3.

Look at putting a new battery in not that hard to do, lots of write ups on doing this.

If yours is a USA bike the frequency is 315MHz, elsewhere its 434MHz.

You will get the low battery warning initially then when it's close to dead flat or removed you will get -- -- on the screen where the number should be.

Awesome! Mine is a US bike. The one on ebay is  315. Its also off an 07, so changing the battery is easier.

The TPMS is made by LDL France.  They make a genuine right angle valve stem to suit but Kaw never made them available as a stock part.  However they were fitted to GoldWings the Honda p/n is 42755-MCA-R31 for the rt angle stem - I have em on my bike. Do yourself a favour and get a pair.

Would those sensors in that kit link up with the kawasaki system? If they are the same manufacturer, id bet they would!?

I believe so.  Although I have not had one of those sensors in my hand, they should have the required data on an attached label just like the one you saw on ebay.  Murph will know. 

The kit is a such a good price.  I'd buy one but my bike uses 434MHz.

They also look like the 1st generation C14 TPMS... with replaceable batteries.

But, Jose Soriano, in the first paragraph of his install, says:  "The main control unit is powered
by a single replaceable lithium battery that should last (according to the manual) two years.
The wheel sensors are powered by a non replaceable battery that should last five years. "

Are these wheel sensor batteries "non-replaceable" in the same way that early model C-14 wheel sensor batteries are?

Freddy --

JUST that part number required? Anything else?

Do these "screw" right into the OEM KAWI TPMS monitors?  Does the tire / TPMS monitor need to be removed from the rim to install these??

This is a fantastic find, and I really appreciate you posting it.  have been wanting these since I bought the bike 4 years ago!

Partzilla appears to be cheaper than Amazon currently, but it's unclear if these are sold EACH, and TWO need to be ordered for both front and rear???

Also - are these compatible with both the OLD and NEW style TPMS Monitors from Kawi??

Thanks guys.

One per package. When I bought them they were less than $15 each.

They fit the early type sensor only but the tyre has to be removed to do so.  That Honda p/n will get you 1 rt angle valve stem to suit, nothing else required other than care when r&r the tyre so the sensor within is not damaged in the process.

Thanks Freddy.

$12.71 ea. on partzilla + min. shipping fee of $10, currently.

Are we SURE they don't fit the new style TPMS monitors??

I have one going dead, and was planning on getting a warranty replacement next month when the bike goes in for a valve adjustment.

I'd REALLY like to have these on the wheels.  :??:
