  • 02 sensers

    02 goldwing, one of my sensors went out, don't know which side. I was given one off a 04. Question- will it work on and 02? Will it work on either side? If this doesn't make sense please let me know.

    There are two different part numbers that I assume are left and right, but it is the same two part numbers for an 02 or 04

      I would pull off a sensor and try it.

        If I were to bet, I would guess that the difference is the connector. But that is just a guess.

          Larry. code 23 is the right sensor (When sitting on the bike)

          ARE THE SENSORS INTERCHANGABLE?
          NO- The Sensors are not interchangeable.
          Because the connector ends are different from 01-06 to 06-up. (Honda gave the 06 up bikes a whole different wiring harness)




          The 06 up sensors have a Female connector, And the 01-05 sensors have a reversed female connector.








          WHAT IS DIFFERENT IN THE EXHAUST PIPES?
          Honda moved the 02 sensor bung hole (where sensor screws into). about 6 inches to the rear of the exhaust system from the collector area where it is in the 01-05 headers, So the Bung hole is now just in front of the cat's



          Here is both exhaust systems to see what I'm saying.

          How to check an O2 sensor.

          Use a high impedance DC voltmeter. Most digital voltmeters that cost more than $50 are high impedance. one meg. is minimum. Mine is 10 meg. If in doubt ask a salesperson before you buy. Clamp the sensor in a vice, or use a pliers or vice-grip to hold it. Clamp your negative voltmeter lead to the case, and the positive to the output wire. Use a propane torch set to high and the inner blue flame tip to heat the fluted or perforated area of the sensor. You should see a DC voltage of at least 0.6 within 20 seconds. If not, most likely cause is open circuit internally or lead fouling. If OK so far, remove from flame. You should see a drop to under 0.1 volt within 4 seconds. If not likely silicone fouled. If still OK, heat for two full minutes and watch for drops in voltage. Sometimes, the internal connections will open up under heat. This is the same a loose wire and is a failure. If the sensor is OK at this point, and will switch from high to low quickly as you move the flame, the sensor is good. Bear in mind that good or bad is relative, with port fuel injection needing faster information than carbureted systems. ANY O2 sensor that will generate 0.9 volts or more when heated, show 0.1 volts or less within one second of flame removal, AND pass the two minute heat test is good regardless of age. When replacing a sensor, don't miss the opportunity to use the test above on the replacement. This will calibrate your evaluation skills and save you money in the future. There is almost always *no* benefit in replacing an oxygen sensor that will pass the test in the first line of this paragraph.
