Cheers mate, interesting reading. So maybe dropping the bike last year has damaged the sensor.
Iím not up to that level of auto electronics, Iím afraid, I donít speak the language .

If I tilt the bike over to the opposite side, it starts up okay. Just in case anyone else needs to get going but hasnít had the time to do the fix.
So nice to have dry roads for a change!

Just wondering if the sensor is repairable and also, how sensitive it is to impact? Would, say, falling off at 4 mph be enough to break it.

I dropped mine at a standstill and had no adverse effects.

I tried the ACF50? thing but it doesnít appear to have worked. The terminals looked clean and un-corroded but there was a tiny glisten of moisture on the top edges of the sensor body. I gave it all a squirt and was fairly confident that that was the answer. Maybe itís corroded inside so much that the weight canít rotate smoothly anymore?

To bypass the sensor you need to do this  :whistle:


Step1- Unplug the sensor.
Step 2- Connect both yellow/green and blue with a 1/4 watt 68k ohm, or a 1/2 watt 100k ohm resistor
Step 3- Tape off brown (ground)

Then you are done - as simple as that  :123A:

The resistor will lower the voltage down to what the ecu is looking for and bypass your sensor with no effects.  :152:

Be advised that if you do then crash the bike, as this is a Fuel injection sensor which cuts off fuel in the event of a crash  :211: :211:

Thanks Towerman, I will probably not bypass it after reading that last bit. With my luck, crashing and burning is exactly what would happen. Just have to wait until the all clear and then order a new one. If all goes well of course.
