Been There Done that.....

I had to replace a sensor and getting the old sensor out was a real PITA. The sensor threads rust in at the bottom of the hole. I had no luck with spanners although I had one advantage that I could cut the leads since I was replacing it. That's why they say use a split socket. But I'm sure even their socket would have split open on my rusted in sensor. I replaced my sensor with a cheaper Bosch Universal and had to splice their wires to my oem connector anyway.

It came out in the end. I used a propane blowtorch around the muffler thread first until it blued, then a 2ft long Stillson wrench, being careful not to mince the flats on the sensor too much. Off the bike you need a strong vise, so see if you can shift it a bit on the bike.

When I came to fit the new sensor in the old muffler it wanted to cross thread. I managed to buy a sensor 'chaser' in my auto shop which is a crude tap. Then all was well.

I'd probably resign myself to putting in a new sensor, unless your bike is low miles.

use a 7/8" open end wrench on a K12RS. If the Ox sensor is real tight you can disconnect the plug and thread the boxed end of a 7/8's to the sensor.

I pull pressure against the wrench, then 'pop' it with my free hand to break Ox sensor loose.

have yet to come up against a sensor that would not break free like this.

K1200RSS oxygen sensor

Hello Vox,
I have been following the thread and wishes to consult with you.
I have a 1999 K1200RS and lately, it's been sucking gas like crazy. The dealer put it on the electronic gizmo and tells me my Oxygen sensor is dead and need replacement.
The said the part number is 11781341022 and wants $371 for the part.

I hunt around on the internet and found a Bosch Universal Oxygen Sensor suppose to be for all BMW bikes (part number is 11781464492 for $79.
I think that earlier thread said the sensor is the same but the Bosch Universal splices into the OEM connector. All this is suppose to work fine?
Would you please help me? Do I have ths correct? Are you happy with the Bosch Universal Sensor and everything fits?
many thanks in advance.

I replied to the same question you asked somewhere else. No problems with a Universal sensor in 2 years.
