Oxygen sensor

I just got off the phone with my dealer, They were having alot of trouble finding a listing for the Oxygen sensor. When they found it they had a price of $230.00 and they were not even sure they could get it. I have looked thro the search and couldn't find the part # for the oxygen sensor or the price or where to get one. Anyone know??? Chuck.

Re: Oxygen sensor

Your Oxygen sensor is covered by warranty for I think 5 years. Its one of those emission items. Mine was covered and I was well out of my 3 year/36months.
I couldnt see what year your LT is...

You'll have to cut and solder. The Bosch does come with some universal connects if soldering doesn't appeal to you.

Re: Oxygen sensor

I have just replaced the oxygen sensor. I bought a bosch
13475 original equipment sensor from Car Quest. The plug
was an exact match and I did not have to cut/ splice any
wires.

The sensor will run about $100.

Re: Oxygen sensor

I have seen many posts here about replacement of the O2 sensor. The indications are that universal models will work as a replacement. My question is why are people replacing the O2 sensor? Unless there has been chemical contamination of the fuel (lead) O2 sensors do not wear out like a spark plug. Anyone know why they are regularly replaced when they are still working?

Re: Oxygen sensor

I replaced mine because I just wasn't getting the fuel mileage that I thought I should. Everything else was just fine, so I thought, maybe all that carbon I see at the end of the silencer is also on the 02 sensor and.....?
Replacing it gained me 4-5 mpg.
(and I'm real particular about calculating my gas mileage, altitude, temperature, position of the windscreen etc)

Re: Oxygen sensor

Interesting. That makes sense though. Currently I'm pulling 50+ at 70 MPH so mine will stay put unless I see some drastic change.

Re: Oxygen sensor

Has anyone had success just cleaning the O2 sensor rather than replacing it? Based on an old old understanding of O2 sensors, they are supposed to clean themselves but maybe they just need a little help sometimes.

Re: Oxygen sensor

actually, if I remember right, there was a warning either in the instructions or in the manual not to even touch the business end of it........

Re: Oxygen sensor

fair 'nuff. I was thinking a shot of carb cleaner would knock the buildup off.

Re: Oxygen sensor

I can say from experience on a Daytona Twin Tech Fuel Controller I have a bunch of experience on O2 sensors. They are not this fragile thing being portrayed here in some of these posts.

I have used a brass brush and air on the two I had in 4" down on each exhaust pipe. They still were purring and doing the job at 30,000 miles when I sold the bike.

I am wondering if there is a method to do a fresh air calibration on these in the LT.

I had to pull them and use a pot on the TCFI to adjust it just to where a led went off. This while holding it in a fresh clean air stream.

Look in the files section of the forums under Tech documents. There's an entry I added a while back that I had found in the old section of the forums.
