    Does the tyre pressure monitor warn you if the level drops below a certain figure?

    Yes, and you can disable it in the TFT completely for track days.

    How do you adjust the target pressure 🤔

    You can't, only disable.
    Unless you're running really low pressure for a track day or shouldn't trigger the warning.  For normal riding conditions it shouldn't trigger.

    One thing I love with the XR is the pressure is the same for riding alone and with passenger/luggage -  I don't know if BMW lies to make it easier for it's customers but all other bikes have different pressures.
    Problem is that most gas stations don't have an accurate gauge and I have to carry one with me. With the TPS - problem solved! It is preset to 280 kpa (~2.8Atm) rear and 250 (~2,5Atm) front and you can't change it.
    Last spring when i "woke" the bike from winter sleep the front was at 200 but there was no warning - I guess the warning goes on at at least 1 Atm (~101kpa) missing.

    Honestly, every bike that I have owned has had recommended pressures of 36f 42r (PSI) approximately 2.5/2.9 bar
    It's just a standard that they settled on and I always soften them a little to 36/38 as I don't carry a passenger.

    I do the same. At 180 pounds, no pillion and Michelin Road 5 GT tires (GT version has stiffer sidewalls) I lower my pressures to 2.4 bar front and 2.8 bar rear. Much nicer ride  :047:!
