That's why I always suggest a US seller with a good rep and return policy, and lots of them sold.

I bought this on on Amazon and after 6 months it's still working well. I run 40 PSI in the rear tire and 36 PSI in the front.

I've bought two of the solar units (one off Amazon the other off eBay). Both were no issue to get operational. basically screw the tire sensors on the valve stem and the display, displayed the current tire pressure. It took a bit to figure out the the different settings because the direction are in Martian and about 0.0023 font.

Not sure there is much of a challenge. Either they do or do not work?

I bought the Steelmate version. STEEL MATE Motorcycle Tire Pressure Monitoring System - Universal TPMS for Motorcycle Oversized LCD Screen with Display Time in Real Time and Tire Pressure Reading System

I like the large numbers, simple hose clamp attachment to the handlebars (won't break), the use of 2 aaa batteries that are easy to replace, and the time display comes in handy.

Reading the Google translate directions....I need to scroll through the menu and get to the screen where it syncs with the front monitor and then syncs with the rear monitor. Both are synced but the rear reads 00 and the warning blinks and beeps???? USA seller and he asked for a video that I just sent. I do like the idea now that I have seen them in use. Beats checking the pressure monthly. ;)

I have had 3 of these (Stornello, MGX, 1200 Sport), the oldest is on the Stornello, 4 years and works perfectly. Batteries in the wheel sensors last 2 years. Really like being able to see my tire pressure while riding.

Caffeineo,
the directions may not be the same at all but when doing mine, the section about recognizing and setting f & r pressures clearly said to do the f, then the r and then enter. NO. You have to enter the front before doing the rear. Don't mean to hyjack but I had the same problem and got the same results as you when following the instructions. Also, the part about losing air pressure at the valve until recognized was odd.
Good luck

Thanks. Think I will see if I can reset or clear all the entries and give it another go before returning it. Could easily be something not quite translated properly by Google.

I was in the dealership yesterday looking at the V85 TT, the salesman told me to wait for a V85 TT Traveler, said they have slightly smaller bags, no top box heated grips and upgraded electrical package so maybe the tire pressure monitor is part of that. Bluetooth to your cellphone perhaps?
I looked at several spec sheets for the Traveller but I have no confidence in them.
Do you have your Traveler yet?
Perhaps list just the special features it has.

Never mind, I see Gino cleared that up a few posts back.

The seller asked me to check the battery voltage on the rear wheel sensor. Battery is good and I think that reset it as it started working. All is good now.  :thumb:

Using my TPMS I notice a 10% rise in rear tire pressure during a ride. It goes from 40 PSI cold to 44. The front is less, going from 36 to 38.

I've read that this is normal for tube tires. Have others experienced the same thing?

I've run these for 15 years and 300,000 miles. Smartest thing to do is just ignore anything but low pressure.
The fronts will run 6-10% higher when hot and the rears run 10-20% higher. It all depends on type or brand of tire, speed, road surface and outside temps. 
Now what will really drive you nuts is when you leave on an overnight trip at 9am and 70 degrees out and you are at 36 front and 42 rear. You wake up the next morning at 6000 feet and 30 degrees out and you're at 26 & 32.

Yeah. The 10% rule says that you may have a little too much pressure in the front. Whether it has a tube or not doesn't matter, AFAIK.

Did about 150 miles today in 95f temps, running 60-70mph.  Front went from cold 38 to 42, and rear went from 39 to 45 while on a hot stretch of new black asphalt at 70+ mph. I think 10%  front, and 20% rear is a normal/safe increase. The stock Golden Tyre and tube on the Stornello was 4lbs / 10%, but the new heavy IRC tube and Shinko 705 is 6lbs and closer to 20% made me nervous at first, but has yet to go above 46lbs.

Sometimes knowledge is misery, not power. I like having real time pressure updates, and it helps eliminate worry when road conditions make you question tire pressure, but the #'s can also cause concern..... oh well

Pressures in car and bike tires have gone up as tires heat up due to rolling and flexing friction for as long as tires have been on bikes and cars.  As long as your tires are inflated per the mfr's recommendatons (and under the maximum pressure on the side of the tire) you will be fine.

Brilliant, Id always thought these things a touch unnecessary, never ever thought of the educational value.
