2018 Goldwing DCT, 3800 miles. I checked tire pressure with gauge and made sure I was correct pressure cold, since then every time I set off cold I get the blinking low tire light. Light goes off after 6 to 9 minutes. It also blinked after a couple hour rest, then disappeared. I will bring it up at my 4000 mile service.....Any Advise?

Check your gauge against another to verify it is correct. My 2018 front tire reading is always one pound less then actual, the rear is dead on with my gauge.

I had a half dozen gauges before I purged the least accurate ones. Even my best (commercial quality) gauge is off by two pounds but I put a label on it's dial to remind me of that.

Is your bike showing the same pressure you set the tire at ?

Others on the forum have commented that their tpms will blink for awhile each time it is first ridden that day. They found that if you read the manual that this is normal and that the wheel sensors have to link to the dash sensor and then the light will stop blinking. If you research the forum you will find numerous threads on this issue. Hope this helps.

Mine does not blink unless the pressure in a tire is slightly under the set-point. When the factory installed tires were on it, I had to overfill by a couple of pounds due to a slow leak (that the dealer said was normal). Now my tires hold pressure like my SUV's do, rarely needing any air, so my TPMS has not blinked or come on since the change.

You would think that if we can send people to outer space, someone could design motorcycle tires that held air, accurate fuel gauges, and accurate speedometers.

I've always wondered, how does one know which gauge is the most accurate - sort of like a man with two watches is never sure what time it is.

I think I have it figured out, gauge pressure needs to show just a couple pounds higher.

my 2010 has the same problem first start light starts to blink for about 15 miles .
sometimes it gets to me so I pull in the clutch and turn off the switch then restart , all while I am riding resting the switch turns off that irrating light.
By the way I have balance beads I sometimes think that may be the cause.

Good luck and keep us posted if you find a cure.
