    Gear position sensor - removal tool ?

    Anybody out there had a go at removing the gear position sensor themselves - in which case is there any ready made tool available or is it a case of working a solution?

    A car lambda sensor removal tool seems the obvious thing but they don't seem to manufacture one in 16mm dia. I was thinking of a 16mm box spanner so the cable and connector can pass through it and a tommy bar can undo it.  The 1200 multi forum does have a couple of solutions but they look overcomplicated

    Have you had any luck replacing your gear position sensor? I may need to do that job as well.

    Yep - got my local mechanic to replace it last week - he used a 16mm spark plug socket and cut a piece out of the side so the lead could feed through it. Once he had the tool it was a simple job and no need to go through the gear learning procedure afterwards either. Bike is much better now as, when the sensor plays up, it has knock on impact as it connects to the canbus (I believe) . Wish i'd changed it when it first started to play up a few months ago. Part cost just over 100 . First problem I've had with the bike in 5 years.

    Thanks for the reply. I may buy one. It should be covered under my RPOne extended warranty but would cost me as much as the part to trailer the bike  back and forth 110 miles to the dealer not to mention the hassle of dealing with the dealer and RPMOne.
