I want to remove the TPMS light!

How difficult is it to open up the instrument cluster and remove one of the bulbs for the idiot lights? Anyone ever tried or done it?

The TPMS light drives me crazy. It's on more than it's off. I saw a video on Youtube where you can cut some wires to get it to stay off, but that makes me nervous.

I believe it is an LED that is soldered in. There is an after market jumper that is plug n play that might be a better way to go.

TPMS Light

I was speaking with my local dealer and he told me they could disable it. I would be hesitant to start cutting wires. The next time you bring the bike in for service, that is if you do then ask them to disable the circuit for you.

Waiting on a call back from these folks to try to order it. I can't seem to find a picture of it or anything. I'm wondering if I'll lose the low tire pressure light along with the TPMS light. According to the Owner's Manual, the TPMS light doesn't have anything to do with low tire pressure.

I would ask them but I think you will lose both. But just a guess.

Oh well, it looks like I'll lose both lights instead of just the one. I guess I can live with that if that's what it takes not to have that TPMS light glaring at me all of the time. I just ordered this part. Seems to do the same thing Cruiseman did in his YouTube video, without cutting any wires.

In all likelihood, it's the battery in the wheel sending unit that is causing the TPMS light to illuminate. But no way to check unless the wheel is off and the tire(s) removed. Then the new battery has to be sync'd with the receiver unit and there have been some calibration problems with new sensors and the receiver. However, if the TPMS light is on for that reason, sooner or later your low pressure sensor will not work as well.
