BANK 1 Is On Same Side As Cylinder 1---Therefore Bank 2 Is The Other Side--Sensor 1 Is Top Sensor (close to engine) YES--Can Cause To Run Rich And Random Misfire. So Can A Injector. You Probably Should Have It Scanned (in data stream) To Check Function--If It Is Bad, It Will Show. DO NOT REPLACE WITH UNIVERSAL O2 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.

O2 sensors are good for 80 to 100k miles. a simple test for an O2 sensor is to remove it and shake it. If it makes any type of rattle noise then replace it. Also while the )2 sensor is out you can run a back pressure test.
