Question Transmission Speed Sensor

Could you help please, I am trying to get the part number for the above part which was mounted on the top right hand side of my gear box, I have found a part on the OEM drawings of 23007660180 but this shows 2 securing bolt holes, mine, as per the Clymer manual, only has one
Is this sensor for the reverse gear ????

Re: Transmission Speed Sensor

It would help us all be on the same page if you let us know what year your bike is. If it is an early model and you are talking about the speed sensor on top of the final drive, that has a known pinch point that damages the wire. This is a well documented repair and is easily done.

Here is a link to a thread covering this.

Re: Transmission Speed Sensor

I just replaced the speed sensor about a month ago and that is the correct part number.
Per Max BMW parts fiche the # is 23 00 7 660 180.

Re: Transmission Speed Sensor

Patroa1, could you let me know, were you able to change this with the bike fully built up, I have mine stripped down to replace clutch, not sure whether to put engine back up in place if this is going to cause a problem

Re: Transmission Speed Sensor

And that sensor on the transmission is for the reverse (movement sensor). Nothing else.

Born to be wild so why not

Re: Transmission Speed Sensor

Yes you can replace the sensor with engine and drive line in place, but as long as you have tranny out you might as well do it now. If you wait till after you reassemble everything the only thing you need to do is cut the allen wrench down so you can get to the bolt ..... it gets a little tight .
