for what its worth those sensors you buy direct from china are the same ones indian sells. just had tires replaced and they installed the new ones i had. 70 bucks for the pair
Didn't you have to have a calibration step done at the shop after the install?I got the TPMS sensors and new tires on my wife's Springfield this weekend.
Here are the sensors. The high dollar original factory sensor is on the left. The $37 sensor from DHgate is on the right. They are one and the same.

How many miles did you have on the TPMS that were changed out?Yeah they calibrated , installed the tires I bought from Bike Bandit for 205 and yes it takes almost 30 days to get sensors
I've seen that suggested before but it doesn't integrate with the on screen Indian TPMS system does it? And can you add air without removing the device on the valve-stem or does it have to come off, add air and reinstall the device? How much air is lost in that process?BLU TPMS sensors are about a one time $75 purchase for a set of 2, mount on the tire stem
I don't think mileage or number of hours ridden has very much to do with when they need replaced. It's more about how many hours/days/years since they were manufactured. So say, buy two sensors, and put one on so it's being used and the other just sits on your work bench. I'd bet the one that's sitting on the work bench won't last very long if you use that one to replace the one in use when if fails. Maybe a few months at best versus most likely 2 ½ to 3 years with the one in use. I may be all wet on that but that what I think.I may want to do a poll on the mileage as I think that there is probably a time factor involved in that the number of hours the TPMS are operating determines their lifespan (for the most part).
I think that it was two to two-and-a-half weeks to get the sensors. Mind you I ordered them a week-and-a-half before Christmas, so the postal system was a little inundated at the time which may have slowed the shipping.
