Dont forget that you need to reset the warning after pumping up a tyre. I haven't access to a manual at present but you need to use the computor controls on the steering wheel. Hold down the reset button to get the menu on the trip system on the rev counter and scroll through until the tyre pressure settings come up.

Once reset it will monitor the wheel speeds over a few miles on should then be OK.

I had this mate, just as I was in my way to a Honda dealer. And he found a nail in my tyre! Said that was why

There is no tyre pressure monitor on the CTR. It simply uses the abs sensor to calculate how fast the wheel is rotating. Any differences in tyre pressure will cause the wheel to rotate slightly faster or slower and you get the warning you saw. Mine came on when the front tyres got too hot and had too much pressure.

As others have said it needs to be reset to go away.
