Afternoon all,
I need to get a replacement lambda sensor for my GTS250ie. I understand there are a few different types (2 wire, 3 wire, 4 wire). Mine's an '05. Does anyone know which specific sensor I require and also where to source one from?

I believe the part is made by Bosch although with a Piaggio label it doubles in price.

Any words of wisdom out there?

Cheers

I was under the impression (though I'm prepared to be wrong about this) that the connector on the end of the sensor was specific to the application.

Again, I could very well be mistaken.

Hi, yes thanks I've seen that thread. Unfortunately it isn't clear exactly which part I need for my bike. As I say, there appear to be multiple wiring options so one needs to get the choice right.

Is there a way to tell given the year of manufacturer which is required?

There's only 2 types on the current range, 2 wire or 4 wire.... Yours should be 4 wire easiest way to check is just look at the multiplug.

Thanks for your help everyone.

I'm convinced I do need the 4 wire. I'm also sure the part number is 584344. The question is, is 584344 uniquely the 4 wire version. i.e if I order that part online am I guaranteed to get the 4 wire version?

Looks like cheeky thomas on the other forum has the answers. Shame I can't chat him directly.

Cheers

Yes that part number is the 4 wire version only...

NGK do a replacement, but you have to swap the multiplug over as it just comes with the 4 wires... Theres also various cheap replacements again with just wires for you to adapt, universal fitment things.

If you have a minute could you share the NGK part number?
