Special Tool - Hand Tester: 57001-1394

Crankshaft Sensor Resistance Connections: Meter (+) → Y lead Meter (–) → BK lead Standard: 376 564 Ω


Crankshaft Sensor Inspection


If there is more resistance than the specified value, the coil has an open lead and must be replaced. Much less than this resistance means the coil is shorted, and must be replaced.

Any tester reading less than infinity (∞) indicates a short, necessitating replacement of the crankshaft sensor.

Crankshaft Sensor Installation
Apply a non-permanent locking agent to the crankshaft sensor bolts [A]. Tighten: Torque - Crankshaft Sensor Bolts: 5.9 N·m (0.60 kgf·m, 52 in·lb) Using a high flash-point solvent, clea ...

Crankshaft Sensor Peak Voltage Inspection
NOTE Be sure the battery is fully charged. Using the peak voltage adapter [A] is more reliable way to determine the condition of the crankshaft sensor than crankshaft sensor internal resista ...

Spring Plate Free Play Measurement
Insufficient clutch free play will cause the engine braking effect to be more sudden, resulting in rear wheel hop. On the other hand, if the free play is excessive, the clutch lever may feel “spongy” or pulsate when pulled. Hold an extra drive shaft in a vise and install the following c ...
