The TPMS mightn't be missed. A lot of owners don't like it because of all the false alarms they generate.

The sensor is and always has been on the inside of the rim, (#15) not external. The square valve stem is just the stem (#16) not the sensor. If they installed a new sensor it would have to be initialized to your bike or the light will come on as yours did. I think they broke your sensor, easy to do if you are not familiar with them. If it has a regular rubber stem in it, it does not have a sensor in the tire.

If and when the dealer put the new TPMS sensor in and has to syncup the sensors to the transciever somewhere on the bike does he do this by (RF) remote control, is he going to have to tear the bike apart to get to the transciever or does he hook up to a diagnostic port and sync it that way. If he has to hook up to a port where is this diagnostic port at on a 2010 GL-1800. Will I have to take off the seat , back rest etc before I take the bike in for this repair.

I really can't say for sure how they do it but if it's the same as on the cars which I would bet it is at least similar they have to connect to the diagnostic connector under the seat. If they were not initialized to the particular vehicle your tire pressure light would come on every time you got beside another vehicle with TPMS and a low tire.

I was hoping you weren't going to say that becasue this gives then another chance to screw something else up that is perfectly good. I guess there is no way to do this myself, hah? I've had the seat off myself and I know what it takes to get it off.

Well on my ford van there a little clicker look's like a digital pressure gauge sorta with a button you just hold it beside the valve stem and push the button and it sync's the tpms i read in the ownners manual. Never had to use it as on first set of tires.
I had a flat once and toke of spare and it worked okay. Was a little pissed tho because I I had it taken into a shop to be repaired and they just plugged it. I could have done that. And to top it off there plug leaked in cpl weeks and i had to replug it AHHH

We use the same thing on Honda cars but it only tests them and is used along with the diagnostic computer to "synch" them to the car.

Okay guys I need techinical information once again. The bike shop says the reason my TPMS light is coming on is because the new one they just put in there is no good. When I asked how they were going to sync the front and rear tire up they did not know. So they are telling me to bring the bike in and they are going to pull the rear tire off and change the TPMS transponder and it will take about an hour. What's the truth here. It is a bad TPMS, do they have to access the diagnostic port, can they sync these up by RF ( remotely). Can I do this myself in the garage by maybe dropping the tire pressure well below normal, let it really sence low pressure and then pump the tire up to the correct pressure once again.

If they are not a Honda dealer it is doubtful they can initialize the sensor. And no you can't do it yourself either.

They are a honda dealership in Modesto. Even the one in Stockton Honda dealership couldn't answer the question. They said I'd have to call Carmichael or San francisco. because they haven't worked on very many goldwings. Pretty sad, hah !
