Thanks for info behind bars, hope you get out soon. I hope the mechs at the shop I'm going to r good. Hopefully this will b a one time thing. If not I'll probably b buying the tool to do it myself. I don't mess around with incopitence.
Why "check" the batteries? The bike is almost 6 years old. Even tho the batteries may check "good", they could be weak. They should just be replaced with brand new ones if you go to all the trouble to dismount the tire, etc.. I would have just wanted new batteries at that point. I don't know how long they are supposed to last, but I would think the service life is reaching the end. Just my :2cents:They told me they changed out the sensor unit. A few months ago the mechanic said he checked the batteries and said they were good.
I have a 2 year old bike and my lights went on and stayed on. Went to the dealer and they said its the low batt too. They covered 1 under the warranty and charged me for a second unit as it was supposedly broken... $368.00 How can you brake one? I had this tire on the bike for 2500 miles and they insist it was broken during the install of the tire.. You cant fight them they are the biggest dealer in GA.A dealer won't " change the batteries", they're not made to be changed per se. They will put new sensors in at a cost of about 180 each for the units + labor of course. If u are handy with a wrench ten u can change the batteries urself. It is kinda a pita but it is doable. I believe there was someone here in the forum who was doing them for a small fee if u would send them ur units.
