The river thing was my fault and so funny !! No damage done - going over a ford - not the car !! Got 25yards across till it just went from under me - we could nt even lift it up it was so slippy - plus my  mate was laughing so much and looking for a camera rather than help - it was hilarious - all in 3" of water. Bike was fine - not even a broken indicator  :002:

I too have an XRX but wasn’t laying out £200 for the Triumph system. Instead I fitted one of these, works exactly the same at a fraction of the price.

I've never had TPMS on a bike before and liked it on the Triumph - especially as I seem to be prone to punctures !! But this device is a complete waste of time and unreliable - keep your money in your pocket ! They  cost a fortune to repair. My single biggest cripe on my almost perfect bike !!

I've had more punctures on my 1200 than any other bike I care to remember - but thinks its probably just coincidence and the number of miles I do. That said, I usually carry a can of tyre weld and all the recent punctures would never be fixed with this -best one being  a full 3" split in rear tyre going down the M6 in UK  - the fitter retrieved a full "Stanley " knife blade from within the rim !!!  :003:

 I think the front socket is good for 15 amps.

I run my heated jacket, gloves and socks off of the front outlet.  Plenty of power for a small compressor.

I'm 5'10". I run my T1200 XRt seat in the low position, and can put both feet flat on the ground.  (It helps to have proper riding boots on with thicker soles.)

On my TEx, I ran with front up, rear down, to keep from being shoved into the tank.  On the T1200 I don't feel I need to do that.

A test ride on the T1200 should settle whether the OP needs a low or not.
