    But if you break or bend something you should have remembered to be gentle.  The trick is to remember the right thing.

    Anything electrical is a pain in the ass if it's not obvious. and most guys would have laid down big bills to get that job done, so you should be happy.   I wonder how many parts the dealer would have replaced before (if) they figured it out...

    Hear you Hilly i have had this temp sensor in and out a few times as well the plug that goes into it is crazy tight to get in as well. I had to walk away a few times as i was about to paint the bike green and throw it in the long grass and hopefully never see it again! LOL

    i have found over the last few years that the connector/seals are a little firmer to reconnect and more so the square ones,oval and round ones are not to bad.a little bit of spit even helps or a tiny smear of dielectic grease can ease connection, oil based lubes tend to swell the seals a little.funny how the tight ones are always on sensors where you can barely get 2 fingers into them.
