    Default TPMS QUESTION

    When I purchased my Goldwing with the Roadsmith conversion, the TPMS light is staying on. I was told by KD Cycle the reason is that they have to disabled that function for the rear wheels. Did anyone had the Honda dealer disabled the warning light in the dashboard? I am not looking to activate TPMS but disable the warning light in the dashboard.Thanks

    Mine is always on also but just an FYI, it works for the front tire but you'll still get the alarm light because of the rear tire.

    I've read where some people tear the dash apart to remove the light from behind. I just ignore it.

    Default TPMS Issue

    [QUOTE=The Captain;828035]Mine is always on also but just an FYI, it works for the front tire but you'll still get the alarm light because of the rear tire.

    I spoke to the folks at RoadSmith about the TPMS light issue. According to the RS tech, the conversion instructions include a direction to tear apart the dashboard in order to place a plug (something like a valve-stem cover) over the light so it will no longer be visible even though it stays on all the time. This sounds like a redneck fix that is only one notch above covering the dash light with a piece of electrical tape! The fact that mine is still visible indicates that the installer at KD Cycle didn't think it was worth tearing apart the dash per RoadSmith's instructions. Mr. Dodd indicated that the TPMS light always stays on unless I feel like tearing apart the dashboard myself to cover it.

    I got a different answer from a tech at California Sidecar. According to the guy I spoke to, CSC spent a bunch of money to hire a tech wizard who wrote computer code to disable the TPMS light after trike installation. They have a proprietary computer module in their conversion kit that addresses this problem, and they are not interested in selling the module to anyone with a competitor's trike conversion kit after spending all the money to solve the problem.

    Personally, I love my RoadSmith DCT conversion and can live with the TPMS light on. I hardly notice it when riding in the daytime.
