The test is performed between one of the terminals and the body of the sensor. On installation do not use Teflon tape or any form of sealant around the threads. Thread tape or sealants could act as an insulator.

Ok, thank you very much. Do you have a diagram?, as that would be most helpful.

Hi all.
That unusual Z shaped pipe at the back of the engine.
I notice mine is quite perished at each end was wondering weather any of you chaps on here can tell me if it causes issues when starting, and idling, please?
Thank you in advance.

Have you replaced all your motos external lines?

Sorry Laitch, are you asking me or the OP? If asking me, I did replace every rubber hose, vacuum line, breather line, fuel lines, overflow pipe, throttle body rubbers, vacuum caps and many other things as suggested by you and others.

I have one. Do I just test for continuity ?

Hi.
No. Iíve only just started digging into this bike, but by judging what I had to replace, or mend, on my cx, I can imagine it will be a good thing to do.

Put enough boiling water into a cup to immerse some of the probe. Immerse some of the probe. Be careful. Boiling water is hot.  Put a thermometer into the water. Be careful. Some old thermometers have mercury in them and if you eat it, you will go crazy.Take one lead and touch the screw threads; touch one of the plug blades with the other, as Martin has already indicated. Be careful. If somebody sees you doing this, they might call the authorities because they think you're involved in terrorist activities. Follow rbm's chart. Compare the resistance value on your multimeter with the one on the chart as the water cools.
lol. I may be a dander to myself and others around me then? I will lock up the children, send the wife out with her friends, and kick the cat out!

hah, OK, the camper van is a good starting point in understanding the difference between Japanese and German engineering :) Also whilst visiting the VW place, you might want to pick up some vacuum lines, the one, they sell for the beetle/camper van with the inside dia of 3.5mm and the outside covered in braided cloth is a perfect fit for the vacuum line between the throttle body and the fuel regulator. Needless to say, for the fraction of the BMW price it is a lot higher spec'd as the braided outer layer protects the rubber (and it fits inside the anti-kink spring just tightly). I have bought 2 metres of that line for less, what BMW would have charged me for 30cm of their own line and I have had good use elsewhere of the left over 1.7 metres.

Handy to know, thank you. I think I have some lying around somewhere...

Interesting fix.  Did you use the marine grade shrink tube that is lined with hot melt glue?  I would expect that to give the best repair.

Yes, sorry.
I have no idea when it comes to electric. What do I set the multimeter dial to? I meant, do you have a pic of someone doing it? Itís easier for me just to watch to learn.

I watch a guy on YouTube do a temp sender from his car.My sender did the same as his, and his was ok, so Iíll just put it bac together and see what happens.

It's a straight-forward connection and measurement process.

1. Use an alligator clip to attach the postive test lead (red) to the tab on the sensor and another alligator clip to attach the negative test lead (black) to the body of the sensor.  If you can't conveniently find a large enough clip, twist bare wire around the body and make sure it is very secure; then attach the lead to the bare wire.

2. Set the meter on Ohms (Resistance) setting.  Most modern digital multimeters had automatic range selection so no need to set a range.  If yours doesn't have autoranging, then set it on the 1000 Ohm range.

3. As Laitch instructed, place the sensor in the boiling water along with the thermometer, with the multimeter on.  The reading should quickly start to drop.

4. When the multimeter reading has stabilized, then start to read both the multimeter and the thermometer at the same time as the water cools.  The temperature should be dropping and the multimeter reading should be rising.
