ELP_JC Posted May 19, 2006 Share Posted May 19, 2006 Hi folks. Everything was going as expected, including the destruction of the 3 rotor bolts, but I wasn't expecting to find a CONNECTOR on the oil pressure sensor, rather than a spade terminal, like on the fan switch. Both of these wires need to pass thru the timing cover in order to remove it, and the connector is too big. Bike is fully dismantled now, and just need to solve this problem to be able to remove the timing cover. Service manual doesn't even mention the wires, so I was going by a procedure (in Adobe) I found either here or i-BMW, but it mentions BOTH wires having spade terminals. What's the cure? Hope don't have to cut the wires; they're too short already, so would have to add some length. It just seems stupid I'd have to do that; hope there's a trick. Appreciate your comments guys. Oh, and another issue. Noticed the bevel-cut gear attached to the crankcase (after removing crankcase cover) has the left edges a little bit chewed up. The right side of the edges is perfect. This gear is the one that drives 2 other gears: One below it (6 o'clock), which becomes the engine output shaft (connected to the clutch). The other, at 9 o'clock (sitting on the bike), I have no idea what it's for (our motor has NO counterbalancing shaft). This small gear only engages the left 1/3 of the crankcase gear surface, and that's the one that chewed up the edge. I assume that wear took place right away from new, but could you guys inspect yours whenever you have it exposed? It's not big deal at all, but am curious if all are the same. You have to get pretty close, but you can feel the ragged edges, vs the smooth right ones. Take care, and thanks for your help. Link to comment
