No_Twilight Posted April 21, 2006 Share Posted April 21, 2006 Remember Derek's 97 R850R that wouldn't run until he changed the motronic and pulled the cat code plug??? It was the At Wit's End thread, http://bmwsporttouring.com/ubbthreads/showflat.php/Cat/0/Number/656822/page/0/fpart/1/vc/1 . Well Derek decided he liked my K-bike and I sold it to him. I took the 850R on trade and now I'm going to leisurely fix it up. I figure the first thing to do is either change or swap the 02 sensor with my other bike to see if that fixes the problem. From the previous thread I see the bosch part number is 13474. Anybody bough O2 sensors from non-bmw suppliers before? Anybody got any tips on removing these w/o cutting the wire? I put a 22mm open end wrench on it today and it didn't want to budge. I was thinking of machining a slot into my box end wrench but figured it's not made heavy enough for that and would just break. I guess the right answer is to just buy a new one, cut the wire off and remove it with a box end wrench... --Jerry Link to comment
