    GP1200R Cat Temp Sensor / Water Temp sensor

    My 2000 GP1200R has a d plate installed, and the cat temp sensor is unplugged. I was riding it the other day ran great for 20 minutes, then after a long idle the temp light came on so i turned it off. motor was warm to touch, no signs of overheating. It would not start up again even after an hour. I read other posts on bypassing this with a 10k resister, my concern is how do I know if I am actually overheating in the future if I bypass both sensors? any info would be helpful, thanks.

    Sounds like the lower sensor went bad. my 1300R did the exact thing the other day. i had another pipe laying there and plugged the other sensor in and zip tied it and rode it the rest if the day.

    You can bypass both sensors to test, but I would not leave it that way. I agree with mudslanger, probably a bad sensor.
