Thanks. Just ordered the tool from Walmart, $10.99. Don't want to mount the new TPMS's and tires to discover my GS911 won't recognize them.Not if you have the 7 digit sensor ID. The tool is inexpensive though and it does come in handy sometimes, especially if you don't have the ID. Some have just put a new one in and rode till it was recognized but that has never worked for me.
Now this is likely a stupid question - but does this mean that the sensors need to be programmed (by a Schrader supported tool) prior to the bike TPMS sensor being able to detect and monitor them? (I ask as Schrader is promoting their new "EZ-sensor" line of products, and one of their marketing sheets has this "Once programmed, EZ-sensor® will behave just like an original equipment sensor.")Well the replacement ones that we got from BMW didn't have any 6 digit codes and BMW confirmed there is no longer a code. As fitted to a 2015 RTp
I get that, but thought this might be one of Schrader's new EZ-sensor products where they need to be programmed (as to protocol, etc.) prior to being installed in the rim. Looking at the Schrader catalog this part number doesn't use that architecture.We didn’t. Plugged in the computer which allowed us to activate a new sensor, gs911 would do the same, used a cheepo wake up tool from China and it woke the sensor up and then allowed the bike to register the new sensor. As I said the new replacement sensors had no code with them from BMW or any code written on them.
Inspektor, we need the name of your vendor in Germany. Also this one has been working for me:
This sure looks good:

Thanks for the information on the OEM sensors and Autotechnik24. Ordered two sensors and two bolts. Price with shipping (DHL) ~$140.00.
AUTOTECHNIK24 shipped quickly via DHL, but the sensors were 5wks on a pallet in Chicago awaiting US Customs processing. Two sensors and two bolts were about $140 USD shipped. Thankfully I wasn't charged duty fees. The new smaller design sensors and shorter bolts weight about 40% less.
Hi Larry;Thanks for the information on the OEM sensors and Autotechnik24. Ordered two sensors and two bolts. Price with shipping (DHL) ~$140.00.
That $140 sounds like a lot of $ for two sensors and bolts. Knowing they are OEM, jacks the $$ of course. Was the price due largely to the Autotechnik24? I'm not familiar with this analyzer.
Thanks for the clarification Larry.Paul,
The price from Max BMW if you buy them there is over $400 for two sensors and mounting screws, so the savings are substantial. Also to be clear these are the same Schrader parts you will get from BMW, just not labeled as BMW.
The Autotecknik24 link is a German supplier with international shipping and stock of these sensors.
You won't physically be able to solder the tabs in place onto the board, there's just no room to do that. Instead, solder small wire pigtails onto the sensor, which can then be soldered to the tabs of the new battery. I've been running a few years that way:I think I've watched every YouTube video on the process and they all break the welded tabs from the battery instead of desoldering the tabs from the board and soldering in new tabbed battery. I believe that's why people are getting mixed results. Perhaps it can't be done. I going to attempt to do mine someday.
