Gold Wing Front / Rear Rims - Interchangeable 2001 - 2012?

Postby dragon2000 » Sun Feb 19, 2012 4:41 pm



I own a 2009 Gold Wing which has the TPM system. I have a chance to pick up a new 2012 rear rim which also has the TPM valve installed.

The question I have is, are all of the GW Rims front and rear interchangeable? I would call the dealership however its Sunday and they are all closed.

Thanks,


Steve

1.8 goldwing wheels manufactured since 2001 are identical, the sensor is a pressure control valve bolted to the pump from inside the rim, which is removable!

Yes they are mechanically interchangeable. The tpms in the 2012 rim will work with your bike but you will
have to have your bike's system programmed to the new tpms in the 2012 rim. You will probably have
to take it to a dealer to have it reprogrammed.

Alternately you could just swap the tpms between rims when you do a tire change if you are
planing to change the tires your self.

That is great tech info. I would have thought the TPM Sensors would be the same from one bike to another however never thought one would need to programme.

As mentioned, I have an opportunity to pick up a new rim which has the TPM sensor. My reasoning for picking it up was I could have another rim/tire ready to go whenever I needed to change. As I have a friend who can change my tires I was trying to stay away the dealerships to reduce the costs and wait time.

Thanks Again.

If you have a good TPM sensor is simply unscrew it from the old rim with the valve and put the new!

Thanks WOJCIECH for the info and schematic.

I looked at the schematic prior to the post and realized I would need to have both tires off to transfer the TPM if the other rim did not come with one. That said, while I now know the rims were interchangeable I was somewhat surprised to hear the TPM needs to be programmed to the specific GW. My next question is, whats is involved in programming a TPM to match the bike?

As I said, my ultimate goal was to be able to just change rims with a new tire, TMP and ride.

Thanks,
Steve

Just a little update to my original question I put forward.

I managed to find a sweet heart deal for a brand new 2009 rear wheel complete with the OEM tire. Where I was concerned the new rear wheel with new TPM would not match my Wing, I must have gotten lucky as the light did not come on after it was installed. Now I am looking for a new front wheel set. Just hope I have the same luck.

check whether the receiver is reset!
tire pressure monitoring system (TPMS) indicator
(amber)
Lights when there is any abnormality in the tire pressure monitoring system
(TPMS). Should also light for a few seconds and then go off when the ignition
switch is turned ON. See page for instructions and cautions. .
If the indicator turns on and stays on at any other time, there is a problem with
the TPMS, and the indicator will remain on until the problem is solved.
Or if the TPMS indicator does not turn on when you turn the ignition switch to
ON, it is possible there is a problem and it will not turn on until the problem is
solved.
With this indicator on, the low tire pressure indicator will not come on when a
tire loses pressure, take the motorcycle to your Honda dealer to have the system
checked.
low tire pressure indicator (amber)
Flashes or lights when one or more of your motorcycle tires are significantly
low on pressure. Should also light for a few seconds and then go off when the
ignition switch is turned ON. If the indicator comes on while riding, stop the
motorcycle in a safe place and check the front and rear tires for inflation.

I found so much, I was looking for! ,,,,,,,,,,and here in 10 minutes - is that it?

I would imagine that all and any tire installation company has the equipment necessary to reprogram TPMS. Just had tires put on my wifes vehicle, and the guy at the local tire shop went out with a hand held unit and did it. He held the unit down by the valve stem and pushed a button. The vehicle beeped when it was finished, and he went to the next tire. Took about 30 seconds start to finish.

change the tire does not require programming the sensor only when the sensor is replaced by another.

Yep, knew that. Just giving the procedure if one does not own their own programming unit. As it turns out, GL1800s cannot be done the way I described above. Read the thread posted by WOJCIECH on Fred Harmons instructions. Thanks WOJCIECH.

Thanks everyone for all of the info/tech support. This is really great.

Like others, my goal is to have a set of tires/rims sitting in the garage ready to go in the event I need to change one. I am sure some of you can relate to having to wait for an appointment at a dealership and at the same time the cost when you do go. For me, if I can do the work myself I will. I am also somewhat lucky to have a few friends who are mechanics should my lack of knowledge or tools become an issue (usually the case).

I will be picking up an ATEQ unit however noticed the 10 model now appears to be replaced by 15 which is contained in the link below. I've also include another link with more tech info. Also thought I would mention that I changed my old rear wheel (rim/tire/sensor) for the new one I purchased last week. To my surprise, when I turned the key the warning light for the TPMS didn't come on. I was somewhat surprised and elated as I assumed my next stop was going to be dealership to get it reset. I'm still looking for a front wheel assembly and will be picking up the ATEQ 15 unit. I am sure I will need it for the front when I change it (tire/rim/sensor).
