PostSubject: The oxygen sensor   Fri 09 Sep 2016, 21:41

Has anyone had to remove theirs and if so was the connector hard to get to? I know the wires are extremely delicate so twisting them is a known no-no. I know from experience the one on the 08 Suzuki Burgman 400 is a pain in the a** to work with.

It's a simple enough task but a PITA the first time until you understand what you are (blindly) trying to accomplish. Remove the right passenger foot rest and follow the O2 sensor wire up to where it disappears behind the body panel. If you can figure out how the plug detaches from the little clip on the air filter then detach it and pull the wire down to expose the plug. It might help if you remove that right side body panel the first time so that you have an unimpeded view of how the plug is secured to that clip though. Anyway free up the plug and then disconnect it. HTH

Daft question, but why remove it?

Well, suppose you needed to remove the muffler...

IIRC the connector for the sensor has three barbs holding the two parts together and can be quite a struggle to split.

 It is a PITA to disconnect that plug. But if you free the plug from the clip on the air filter housing it allows you to pull out that harness & plug and seperate the plug more easily.

As I said, it is much easier the first time if you initially remove the side panel.
