    I posted on UKGSer but thought I may as well ask here as well.
    I bought a spare set of wheels some time ago for my GSA LC.
    I finally got a set of tkc80s fitted by Lee from EMJ Bike Tyres the other month and have fitted them on the bike this weekend.
    Of course I now have the TPS icon flashing as well as a warning light constantly blinking.

    I've had differing opinions in sorting this.
    One chap said you can only have one set of wheels registered with the bike, another says you can have two.
    And it seems its either a visit to the dealers or getting GS-911 to be able to set them.
    Anyone here got experience.

    I’d need several bits though there are quite a few flashing lights. :)

    I know, I suffer from those on a Saturday morning --- hold on it's Friday night ? , shock horror :D



    Sorry Dave, can't help you on this one. I have an 06 plate with non of those fancy dangly bits. My GSA rims are beyond repair, just going to keep the same rims until they corrode to death :D Until then, I'll just keep her chappin :respect13:

    Hope this helps ??? :cool2:

    Decided to buy a gs-911. Will order next week.
    That way I can just plug that in when I change the wheels and switch them over.
    Bit mad that you can’t have two sets of wheels active with the bike though.

    The gs-911 has arrived. I’ve found a old laptop so will be plugging it in to the bike to see what it tells me.
    I’ll report back in due course.

    The GS911 is a great tool. I run mine on an old very low spec Netbook and is all I use the netbook for. You have to download an application from Hexcode. Launch the application and plug in the GS911. Run autoscan to read and clear any fault codes. Go into the menu relevant for your bike and the dive into the sub-menus for the various controllers and features on the bike. "Real time values" is good to browse through as you can see what your bike is doing and what inputs and outputs each sensor is dealing with. I think there's people out there who really do understand what it all means, mostly to me its just interest. Some stuff you can get to read out as a graph or export to an Excel spreadsheet. You should be able to change dashboard from metric to imperial and vice versa and test the lights, horn, dashboard features, and other functions - like, cycle the fuel pump, ABS pump etc etc and of course suspension calibration. I know too much about that.:rolleyes: No doubt you will become expert on the coding of TPS monitors.

    Well have had a play with the GS-911 but can't get the TPS sensors to wake up.
    Tried letting air out, spinning the rear wheel at 50mph+ but no go.
    Ordered a cheap wake up tool from ebay to see if that helps, as someone on the Hexcode forum reported it worked for them.
