Don't rely on the TPM for an accurate pressure, I reckon mine over-read by at least 5-7 psi.

Are you taking the readings at the same temperature? My TPM is pretty accurate, but there is a genuine rise in pressure as I ride the bike and the tyres heat up. Having said that, 5-7psi would be considerably more than I see just from riding.

Yes, I usually see a good few PSI rise when riding too but no, this occassion I checked both tyres cold while washing the bike and the 100 yard dry dash. I am not overly worried about this, I got them to indicate a flat more than anything else, which they have done once in 12 months (nail). I am more pleased with the improved handling at low speed, I think I have been running a few PSI down most of the time.
