Hi all, could anyone tell me where I will find the orifice in the water system where the temp sender fits. This will save a person of pensionable age having to go on his old knees looking round a K100RT with his glasses on his nose end. I also need to know the thread size as I have a number of types in stock that might fit. This is to shorten the down time{on knees} . Thanks Guys, Gordon

behind the radiator gordon ...in a very difficult place to get to
here is a pic with the radiator removed
Technical 2013-017

I have found the best way to get there is to remove the lower right fairing  and the air box so you can swing a spanner or two in there at the same time as your hands

sorry don't have the thread size to hand

but it looks like this

Thanks 99 for that, it looks as if it will have to wait awhile until if I ever need to get in there. I have ,as a temporary measure, strapped a sender to the hose behind the right hand lower fairing. This is no way as responsive as  being internal but it gives a guide. Thanks once again Gordon Smile

Thanks Inge I will check the ones I have Gordon

be careful Gordon
the sensor for use on the k100 8 valve  is a dual sensor ( two elements in 1 housing )
the terminals are the outputs of each sensor ...sharing the body as the third terminal

just a heads up

cheers and good luck

If it's the temperature sensor for the gauge that is on the oil/water pump. There are 2 sensors there the lower is the oil pressure and the upper the water temperature gauge.

I am waiting for new coolant temp sensor, but now I have VDO for bmw 316, 318 from eighties (LE Jetronic). Its same only difference is thread which is 14 mm instead 12 mm on bike. Anybody have experience with this? May I cut 12 mm thread in this sensor just to check. Is it the same type on sensor (one pin for FI, second for fan)

Regards?

It would be a lot easier to put a 14mm thread on the coolant stub that the sensor screws into.

is rick thinking to make a brass adaptor to fit up to the water stub then increase the size of the port to something larger ...then fit the new sensor in there ...a few tools outside the ordinary would be needed ....yes ?

sidecar paul ...or rick  territory I believe (some one with a lathe and good metal skills at least)

No.  There are 2 small bolts and 1 hose clamp.
