Nope, no clue yet.
Been there for quite some time. No apparent symptoms.
I have git the exact same errorcodes
Any solution found so far?

Did you get the calibration done?

did you perhaps start a hall sensor test at any time?

Well said Inspector Gadget.  I did order in some 2050's.  Expect delivery tomorrow.  I currently have a 2032 in the front tire and a 2032 in the rear but ....I did not glue it secure enough so it spun loose after 50 miles at 90mph.  My bad as I epoxied it to the rim next to the TPMS module.  The front tire I glued it inside the TMPS module so the centrifugal forces will hold into the TPMS pocket.  Breaking the old glue out of the TPMS module is a piece of cake.  The rear took my about 40 minutes because it was I first attempt and I had no vice to hold it steady.  The front TMPS glue removal took about 3 minutes but also because I had a sturdy vice to grab it.

Likely being the CR2032HR variant (=Heat Resistant, temperature-range from -40 degrees Celsius to +125 degrees Celsius)

The CR2032HR's thickness (height) is 3.2mm versus the CR2050HR 5.0mm
So a difference is 1.8mm, which is not that much difference, as there is in that respect "plenty room" within the BMW TPM Sensor to mount them.

The bigger difference is the mAh-values, meaning how much current it can maximum provide measured per hour, before it drops to 2.0 volts (the state at which it should be considered "empty")

The CR2032HR ia 200mAh, whilst the CR2050HR is 350mAh.
(but the CR2032HR has a higher acceleration Resistance of maximum 3300 G's versus 2000G's, which is, according to the manufacturers equivalent to acceleration when driving at 300km/h & using a 17-inch wheel)

Bottom-line: the CR2050HR should a fine replacement (too) for a dead battery and probably will last a bit longer versus the CR2032HR.

Getting a slight difference in reading the actual pressure often comes down to what tool you are using as a reference to compare the measurements with.
El cheapo tyre-pressure readers often give very slanted results.
Whilst investment in a good digital or analoge reader often give more accurate results.

TPM sensors, including BMW's, are so-called temperature-compensated.
Meaning, the pressure displayed on your dashboard is the pressure as if the tire is at 20 degrees Celsius.
Which a tire seldom is, hence also the reason the pressure does increase when the tyre does get warm.
Therefore you should always measure the pressure before riding and preferably pressurise your tyres a wee bit above but never below the desired pressure.
Where it really comes down to your personal preferences, and your brand of current tyres, but not excluding what the motorcycle manufacturer states in the user manual about tyre-pressures.
I like harder tyres as the bikes rolls & corners better for me, compared to what BMW dictates in my user manual.

Bike is a 2004 R150RT with 103k. Recent issue is crank but no start or start but run super rich.

The GS911 (laptop version) was reporting very low voltage (RealTime values) for the running bike. It would show between 7.9vdc and 9vdc. I found the Motronic Relay had a rather large voltage drop so replaced it and the real time voltage more reflected battery voltage, but now the upper stick coils won't fire. Is there some setting in the GS911 I may have tripped to cause this?


Common trouble codes or issues with known solutions / K1200LT fault codes 288 & 5381

My 2002 K1200LT started dying at stops. Ran great under throttle but when I stopped it would fluctuate then die. I ran the auto scan and got these 2 codes.

288    Throttle Position Sensor, Internal Fault on Upper or lower Potentiometer Slider. The fault is not present now.

5381 Idle Switch, Short-circuit to Earth.The fault is not present now.

The printed autoscan doesn't show it but on the GS911 it said they had occured 20 or 30 times. I'm going to change the TPS and recalibrate it. Has anyone else had a similar issue? Was the Idle switch error caused by the TPS or is it bad too?

As far as I know, it will only change while the motor is running.  Start the bike and try again.

Hi Guys, regards from Venezuela.

Im trying to calibrate my bike suspension but it dont make a precharge calibration.

My bike dont move up between the 1 helmet and 1 helmet + luggage.
