    bar vs pounds - TPMS

    I asked my dealer to order and install the TPMS. I live in Florida. In the United States of America. They install them. Can't get them to work. "Ordered wrong version" they say. Different version ordered. Installed. Reads in BAR.
    Does anyone have TPMS in lbs? Are these guys wrong again?
    Help.

    Menu -> Settings -> Units

    --edit --
    I stand corrected, they don't do PSI. You will just have to learn the Bar values you need.

    2.5 =~36
    2.6 =~38
    2.7 =~39
    2.8 =~40
    2.9 =~42
    3.0 =~44


    According to the manual, you want:
    Front tyre pressure: 2.4 bar (rider only) - 2.5 bar (full load).
    Rear tyre pressure: 2.4 bar (rider only) - 2.9 bar (full load).

    Correct. I have TPMS and they use BAR unit only. Itís not too difficult to program the brain to accept and understand BAR readings! I use the rough guide of 1 BAR = 15psi. Itís actually 14.5 but thatís too much math on a motorcycle!!

    Very handy accessory to have, intriguing to see the pressure go up as the tyres warm up. Towards the end of todayís ride I was intrigued with the rear monitor displaying 1.9 BAR as I pulled into our driveway - sure enough, an inch long nail had pierced the rubber. Groan.
