Yoshimura Ignition Cover - Pipe Plug for Oil Pressure Sensor

Hi,

Any picture of the pipe plug used for the oil pressure sensor hole to fit the Yoshimura Ignition Cover will be highly appreciated (in a 750 89 Slingshot and/or 1100 87).

This to give me an idea how it looks like and what can I use instead.

Cheers!

just a brass pipe plug I believe. You can get them at Lowes, any NAPA, plumbing supply etc..

Re: Yoshimura Ignition Cover - Pipe Plug for Oil Pressure Sensor

but remember it's most likely metric,,,if you're shopping in the US,,,should be pretty common,,you might check on the caliper pin plugs used of some bikes,,like Hondas,,,,they might be right,,,i seem to remember them being fine threaded metric,,

Hootguy, Tonyc9928, thank you very much.

I got this picture, here is the pipe plug and what it looks like a steel or aluminum rod... any clue what was for?

Thank you very much Jeff.

Is it entirely essential?

Re: Yoshimura Ignition Cover - Pipe Plug for Oil Pressure Sensor

Well, sometimes what seems difficult is not when parts are searched in the right places.

Got the conical pipe plugs for USD 50 cents each. If anyone needs a piece I will be glad to help.

Re: Yoshimura Ignition Cover - Pipe Plug for Oil Pressure Sensor

Google - BSP 1/8 is 9.73mm od/8.57mm id at 28 tpi (0.91mm pitch); metric 10mm comes in coarse(1.5mm) or fine (1.25 or 1mm pitch). Neither metric fine is exactly same but maybe the BSP is really the bodge for 10mm fine?

Re: Yoshimura Ignition Cover - Pipe Plug for Oil Pressure Sensor

Sensor nipple od is 9.86mm and pipe plug od is 10.01 mm both on the larger conical circumference. Will get later the smaller conical circumference for both. At a glance thread pitch look quite identical.

Do you know a Suzuki dealer in Canada that can supply the item?
