    F700GS - TPMS warning on, but pressure is ok

    Could not find much on this, I am getting the warning symbol, but the display shows the correct pressures which match an analog gauge. Is this a trip to the dealer to fix?

    Probably need to visit the dealer.
    I have heard of a few cases of the warning going off too early.
    What pressures are displayed?

    You donít mention the year of the bike. If itís warranty is still in effect, sure, swing by the dealer. If I was diagnosing myself, I would lower both tires to around 20 psi with the key on and watch for an alarm(s). Then turn the key off and reinflate to correct psi.
    That should give you an idea what is up.

    It is a 2016, sorry. Showing 33/37 on the display, which matches.

    What does the manual show for the back tire?
    If it's 42, 37 may be low enough to trigger the warning.

    Manual is 31.9/36.3 with one up, no load. I'll try upping the rear to see if it clears, as the spec is 42.1 with passenger and/or loads.

    TPMS Warning

    I had that problem with my 16 700gs. Called my dealer, he said check your tire pressure....(mine was actually higher than it should have been. I used a different tire pressure gauge...put the tires where the manual said...33/37. He said turn off the system (bike) and let it set.The turn back on...all was well.

    I am basically a moron! The light I was looking at was in the center of the display, which basically is there to tell you that it is displaying the tire pressure. If it WAS really low, it lights a different light on the left side. Rider error...!
