Generic TPMS sensor on my 09 C14
« on: November 26, 2018, 06:07:17 pm »
Had to remove the rear sensor to replace the battery again because last one last just only a few months probably because the one I put on have it stored for a few years and was no good.
Having the sensor out take the chance and try a generic programmable sensor and having a tool that is capable to copy the ID from the old sensor and write it down in the generic sensor or if you have the sensor ID you can input it manually in the tool and write it down in the generic sensor,  new sensor price is in the $30.00 range , the only problem is that you have to use a steam valve for vehicles and fabricate a little bracket to secure the sensor or use a strap to secure it to the wheel, it works perfectly and wake up faster than the stock one, will post pictures later because files are too large and system does not allowed me to download

Does any body know how to edit the photos to make them the smaller size good enough to post them here?

As you can see in the tool the ID is the same that is in the concours sensor

So you are talking about this?:

http://www.schraderinternational.com/Products/Product-Folder/NA-Schrader-EZ-sensored61.html?sc_lang=en-US-NA

So this is a sensor that can clone our stock sensor's ID and connect to the stock TPMS display?  Interesting...

Well, that varies dramatically on what computer and tools and OS you have.  I use nothing but Linux, and resize/edit photos locally using "GIMP" which is also available (free/open source) for other operating systems, such as MS-Windows.  I do recommend you upload photos rather than link to them, since at any moment, hosted photos will disappear and then the thread becomes far less useful for future readers.

You can also use online tools (web sites), such as:  http://resizeimage.net/ or http://www.picresize.com/

PS- you reference a "as you can see on the tool" in one of the postings, but there is no photo of that :)

Well, amazing if that works, and the price is dirt cheap!  Of course, you still have to get the tool to program it, and it seems you needed to do some work to make it fit.  Should be an interesting experiment.  I know many people will want to read more about your experiences, especially programming, accuracy, and how it holds up over time.

It seems to suffer the same flaw as all these other sensors- internal battery that will die.  They claim 7 to 10 years of service.

I checked the "fitment" guides on their site, neither Kawasaki nor Concours were listed anywhere that I could find.  Maybe you should let them know they could have another market they don't even know about :)

I have many years working on cars and after this system come to the market  have some experience working with that, yes it is correct, in the applications kawasaki is not listed and also the tools to program them have no kawasaky as an option but what i did was to search for the menu for a vehicle were the tool is able to read the kawasaki stock sensor ID and in the same menu for that vehicle used the option to write that ID to the EZ sensor and it work, those 315 Megahertz sensors work in most of vehicles but the operation is different for each brand of vehicle, the one that worked for mine is the 2009 Mazda 3, so any one that want to try it just have to get one of the EZ sensors and go tho any tire shop that have a generic tool capable to program SCHADRER EZ sensors and ask to program it using the menu for 2009 Mazda 3 , you have to bring the old sensor or write the ID found in the stock sensor

I wonder if registering the Schrader ID number to the bike's KIPASS ECU with KDS would work?
