    I am planning on converting my GS to tubeless tires with installed Tire Pressure Monitoring System and remember finding a thread about the GS having the radio equipped but not turned on.

    I want to know if anyone has turned on their OBC to the TPMS radio and configured there GS to read the sensors. (To confirm there is one already onboard).

    Can it be configured with the MotoScan to pair up with the TPMS sensors or do you need to go to BMW to do it?

    Hi
    As far as I can tell, it's not possible

    I installed something like that :

    UPDATE: I have discovered converting the K72 F800GS to use the BMW RDC TPMS is possible and quite easy (in theory so far).

    Parts needed are:

    65757720818 RDC (eBay Used $70)
    65757707271 Holder ( $10)
    07147119858 Screw ($3)
    36318532731 Sensor (going Ebay for aftermarket source $30)
    EL-50448 TPMS Relearn Tool (Ebay $9)

    I tested the the RDC from my 2016 F800GT p/n 65757720818 plugged into the 2016 F800GS with the RDC activated via MotoScan and it registered the pressure from the GT parked next to it with he rear sensor activated.

    I know the valve stems are different sizes for the tubed rims so I thinking of getting VMX tubeless rims and doing a full conversion instead of drilling out the valve stem hole.

    More to come....

    Did it actually display pressures on the bike display or just on the Motoscan real time values?

    When I plugged in the RDC to the GS and used the motoscan to activated RDC it did show value/pressure on the the display.

    Hi - new to this forum. I recently acquired a F650GS Twin (2008) and it had no TPMs fitted. I bought Motoscan, a used TPMS controller off ebay which I fitted under the seat in the allocated space. The bike had tubeless and so I purchased the sensors and valves. Used Motoscan to activate the pressures on the display and then coded in each sensor. All works a treat.
    RoniRider, how did you get on?

    Hey folks thanks for paving the way!

    Is the "Re-learn" / wake-up tool required, or can i get the entire job done with just MotoScan-ing?

    Where does the RDC attach to the bike?

    I would love having all this stuff just built-in!
    I wonder if any of the aliexpress / after market sensors have replaceable batteries?

    The wake up tool isnt required, but makes it worth while to ensure the sensors are working before you install them in tire. The sensor is cheap. I highly recommend you get it for peace of mind. Otherwise you would have to ride the bike to wake up the sensors and then try to program.

    Thank Roni!
    I didn't quite understand what the tool did ... for $10 I'm a sport
