Tire pressure light 2012 wing

Post by georgehb »

I have a 2012 wing, the tire pressure light comes on when starting a ride then after so many miles and the temp rises in tires it goes out ?? I checked the pressure in tires before riding and they are set with proper amount any suggestions what could be wrong is there something going on with the tpms. Any advice will be appreciated
Thanks George

It is pretty normal and may have to do with cold roads. Mine does it also, spring and fall, but not in the summer. I think the TPMS that Honda put in these bikes is just real sensitive. When I run with higher pressures than recommended (which I do to control cupping of the tires) I get less of this happening.

Right. In cold weather, air pressure is reduced, so it will sometimes show the TPMS light. When you ride a bit, the tires warm up, the air pressure goes up, and the light goes out. Make sure that when you check your tire pressure, your tires are cold (i.e. first thing in the morning). I also run mine with a bit more pressure in them, to prevent cupping.

How many additional lbs. do consider a little bit more. I would like to do that and don't want the overinflate issues either.

Thanks for any info you can give me.
