Re: Do I need a new temperature sensor?
There are actually two temp sensors on the LT. One for the water (which may be your issue), and one for the engine (it's actually on the rearward side, block mounted, and accessible fro the left side of the bike).
My radiator temp sensor never went out. My engine temp sensor went out, and it was obvious. The computer never knew when the engine heated up, so fuel mapping was wrong. Computer always was fueling as if cold, so 5 minutes into a ride, it would sputter, spit, and barely run... Pull over, let her cool - and then I could go for another few minutes.
