Looks like it is attached to the battery box. On the rear side just under the drivers seat by one screw.

SOURCE: i am trying to locate the bank angle sensor on my

I not 100% positive but I think the bank angle sensor is inside the speedo. The latest schematic I have is a '99 model and that's where they say it is. Hope this helps.

Make sure the bike is upright, then turn key on then off this resets the BAS. There were recalls for these sensors on some model years.

SOURCE: 2002 sporster no fire at the plug bypassed

Test the coil. Using a DVOM (Digital Volt Ohm Meter) , check the resistance of the primary winding of your coil. Disconnect the wires from the small wire connections on your coil. Put one meter lead of your meter on each small terminal. It makes no difference which lead go which connector. Put the meter in OHMS< R X 1. You should read 3 to 4 ohms of resistance.

Another way to test the coil is run a power wire straight to one side of the coil. One the other side, connect a straight wire. Turn the power on to the coil and the momentarily ground the stright wire on the other side of the coil. When you take the wire away from ground, you should see a spark at the spark plug.

If your coil test good and you have power on the coil when you turn the switch on, your problem is the sensor plate in the timing cavity or something to do with a security system.

Did you change the sensor in the timer cavity on the right side of the engine? It's behind the round plate on the cam chest cover. If still original, there are two rivets holding the cover on. Carefully drill the heads off the rivets. Do not drill any deeper than that. Once the plate comes off, you'll see the Hall effect sensor in the cavity. Mark the plate and the inside of the timer cavity so that you can remove the old plate and get a new sensor in the cavity in EXACTLY the same position. There is a plug underneath the engine that you will have to take the wires out of to get them out of the small hole. DO NOT USE STANDARD POP RIVETS TO SECURE THE PLATE BACK OVER THE TIMER CAVITY HOLE. These are special rivets that you can get from you dealership. Or, you can put an aftermarket plate that uses screws instead of rivets in the holes.

Good Luck

Sensor bank angle

The bank angle sensor is located in the fairing near the guage assembly. It cuts the fuel pump off when the bike is tipped over. Do you have a specific question?

My 1993 GL1500I will not run when Placed into First gear. Idles fine at Start up. Soon as I engage transmission and release the Clutch the Engine Dies

Maybe having trouble with the bank angle sensor; it shuts that bike of when the bike gets dumped over but sometimes will go bad and shut the bike off prematurely. Post a question a and someone will help you with any Goldwing problems that you may have.

Show me the bank angle sensor

Above the oil filter behind the round plastic cover. It has a red led that flashes when you turn the bike over or the bike runs. if it doesn't flash - it is bad or the fuse to it is bad.

Bike wont Start.

You can accidentally UNPLUG the tip sensor if you remove/jar the front fairing. Verify that it is plugged in. If you uninstalled the tip sensor, make sure it is installed in the correct position. Here's the service manual next steps after that check: First thing the SM states when you turn the key and get no fuel pump "noise" is to inspect the fuel pump by measuring the voltage between the terminals. If there is battery voltage, check the main fuse (20A), sub fuse (10A), engine stop switch, fuel cutoff relay (relay box under left middle cowl), engine stop relay, bank angle sensor, and finally, ECM.

Recently crashed my 2008 zx14,

the bank angle sensor is usually mounted in the front end, and if this is damaged it will not run. Listen for the fuel pump to power up and run.If you dont hear the fuel pump come on then start looking for the sensor.It could be upside down or damaged.
