None that I'm aware of.  I think we've nailed it down to a French Mfg, though.  You would still need to register them with the Kwak tool.

You can buy them on ebay,, BUT only the dealer has the equipment to sync the TPM to your bike.

If you buy them on e-bay you might not get the warranty, the factory unit has a 5 year warranty on the battery. You have no idea how old the units on e-bay are.

I'm sure that you can buy them at some of the online dealers like http://www.ronayers.com/

You'll still have to have the bike programmed to recognize the new sensors.

Talked to my dealer and I am looking at close to $500 for 2 sensors and labor. Yikes! If u remove the sensors will it get rid of the warning message. My bike is a 2008.
Thanks

Not damaged I don't think. Got the message about low battery. May try replacing the batteries myself. If I mess it up no worse off than now

If you buy them on e-bay you might not get the warranty, the factory unit has a 5 year warranty on the battery.

I've seen the Kawasaki Bulletin and while it does say, "The transponders are utilized with the wheel's air filling valves, and contain sealed batteries rated for a five-year life."  Nowhere in that does it imply there is a warranty. It only suggests that they could last about 5 years.

Shows "pop it open, desoldier old batter, soldier in new" from what i saw. Doesn't appear difficult nor  hard to find battery. And if the battery is bad, I don't have much to lose trying.

Although I am going to talk to my friends at warranty before my 3 years is up and see if Kawi will hook me up

Something white appears to be very broken in the first pic. :o
