Tire calibration

I attempted to run the tire calibration process on the 2019 hypermotard without success. Despite staying in 2 nd gear and maintaining 30 mph for 5 seconds the display always ended with a fail report. Any tricks to this task?

Repeated attempts to calibrate the tire as per manual instructions, 2nd gear between 30-32 MPH for 5 seconds, fail. Select the start, get the flashing ready signal, stabilize speed in 2nd gear between 30-32 mph, get the in progress signal and then invariably, a fail.


Tires are same size as OEM Supercorsa. 120/70 and 180/55.

Just to make sure you are keeping the bike in a straight line (as possible) correct? I know on my Aprilia that would screw me up but it has been easy on the V4S. Also did you swap out the front wheel as it could be the sensor ring?

Straight line, yes, performed on a pretty straight and flat stretch.

Front wheel is stock with sensor ring in place.

Did you run the bike on the stands at all? That will sometimes cause issues with speed sensors. The only other things I can think of is to pull both wheels off clean them and re-mount making sure everything is in place.

Never ran the bike on the stands.

The ABS works both front and back. Tested to confirm.

What should I pay attention to in terms of cleaning when wheels are removed?

Is the speed sensor used in conjunction with the phonic wheel front and back the same sensor that drives calibration?

Yes the speed sensor rings are very touchy if they get nicked or tweaked at all it causes issues. After the failure does it have any warning lights that stay on? If not that might not be the cause and the dealer would have to run a diag to see.

No warning lights are on.

Speed sensor ring and sensor look fine upon close examination. I wiped down the face of the ring and the face of the sensor with a cloth and a bit of rubbing alcohol to remove any dirt that may have been affixed.

Will try again later today and see what I get.

I contacted the dealer and sent them a video of my findings. Let's see what they say. I will report back. Thanks for all the help and ideas.

Dealer saw the video and told me to bring it in.
