That **** digital thermometer is sooooooooooo far off from reality that I am thinking that the temperature "probe" must be right next to the **** engine....!!!

Anyone discovered where it really is.??????????? :confused::confused: PS: on the 400.......mine is a 2008......

If you look on the ride side Tupperware you will see some air slots. It is just above there under the plastic along with several other sensors. If you are not moving it will register some of the heat coming up from the engine. It will read closer to actual after you are moving and some fresh air flowing over it. It gives a read out on the dash as a secondary function, the primary function is really input to the fuel control sensors in the ECM.

How does one start a new thread? I can't find it anywhere on the site. Anyway, what does the thermometer look like and where is it located on the Burgman 650 (2011)? How do you replace it? As it is Broken and will not read below 26*c.

at the forum you are looking ( top right) there is a new topic button

on most bikes its a thermocouple on my fjr its a wire under the dash and looks like a "loose" wire - sorry cant help on the Burgy but i would expect its similar

Hey Cole, you can't start a new topic from a thread you're reading. You have to start from the forum you're in. Here, you would go to the top of the page and click on "GeneralDiscussions". Then, you'll see "New Topic" just below and to the left of the header.

IDK about the temp thing.

I wish I knew what type it was in case I ever had to make a replacement, I'd guess either k, j or T since those are most common. Would be real surprised to find an rtd there.

Thermocouples tend to be finicky regarding how they're wired (for best accuracy, they need similar materials throughout the cable run or stabilized temps at every connector that can be calibrated out). I'd be kind of surprised if they use thermocouples at all. I'd think using the temperature dependence of a semiconductor junction would be more than adequate for the range involved (-40F to 125F).

Looking at some typical air temp devices for automotive apps it appears they pretty much use RTD's. The relative accuracy of the measurement is probably a result of the target price for the sensor.
