Oddly, I was having a similar problem but then it seemed to magically resolve itself before I could get the chance to have a mechanic check it out. A related problem I had was when I was using one of those digital air compressors that are powered from the 12v socket in a car. I keep one in each car for emergencies, and it just seemed the easy way to pump up the Goldwing's tires when it was needed. What I didn't do, and should have, is compare the pressure that this inexpensive air pump showed with pressure on a decent tire air gauge. When I got around to doing that, I found that the digital pump consistently read about 4 to 5 psi higher than was really the case. For awhile I thought that my tires must be leaking air since it seemed I had to pump them up quite frequently, and the TPMS light would come on intermittently. Now I use a good tire gauge to measure the psi and I can go a month or more without seeming to lose any air pressure, and the TPMS light never comes on other than when I start the bike.
