I'm not sure if I missed it in the sensor trial thread, but how much thermal grease is enough? My original head temp. sensor was really stuffed with it.
Good to know. I haven't replaced that sensor yet. I don't ride in wet conditions, but maybe moisture in general can affect it ?Pulled the plug and saw it had started to corrode so cleaned up, dialelectric grease into the nooks and crannies and problem solved. Apparently crank sensors can be affected by temperature .
Your reply brings me to ask one question. What part of this sensor so delicate as you described in your manual. I was fairly apprehensive about even touching the damn thing. When I went to swap it out I was very careful. But afterward I found myself wondering what part pf it could be messed up by bumping it. Just a question.I’ll try to get to that. It simply threads out and the new one back in. Even just unthread yours and put back and you will see there is nothing to it. No oil will pour out. Nothing to fear.
I must have missed where it makes such a huge difference in performance. I thought durability was the main issue. Ok then. I'll get around to it. Thanks, Richard.Fair enough but the head temp sensor is way more responsive. Take both out hook up to a multimeter. Get a hair dryer and watch. Then you may end up using the bosch. As for the cam. Same thing and get a peice of steel and place it at an exact distance and compare both sensors.
