Ignition Sensor Repair Service for Airheads & Oilheads Airheads

We replace non-working and/or add a second redundant sensor for ignition reliability to your Airhead electronic ignition bean can. Don't buy a new bean can when all you need is the sensor replaced. We can replace the sensor with an new Honeywell OEM quality sensor for a fraction of the price of new. We recommend that during repair, have us add a second ignition sensor. Should the first sensor quit, our modified bean cans have quick change connector for an easy roadside repair to change to the secondary sensor and be on your way. Complete instructions included. Cost for replacement of existing sensor $150.00. Cost to add a second sensor to your working bean can $200.00. Cost to replace bad existing sensor and add a second sensor $250.00. This is the cost to replace the sensor only, if the unit is internally damaged or seized up, we may not be able to repair those. Get your non working unit repaired and a second sensor added for much less than a new replacement. Don't be left on the side of the road with a non working ignition sensor! This is a must have mod for electronic ignition Airheads.

Oilheads - We replace both Hall sensors on your Oilhead electronic ignition sensor plate. Don't buy a new BMW plate when all you need are the sensors replaced. We will replace the sensors with new Honeywell OEM quality sensors for a fraction of the price of a new plate. Cost for replacement of both existing sensors is $115.00.

We also buy non working Airhead electronic ignition bean cans and Oilhead ignition sensor plates.

This is an old thread. Does anyone still perform this service on the bean cans?

At the time we placed this ad the sensors were readily available and reasonably priced. They soon became hard to find and the priced jumped accordingly making this service nonviable. I haven't checked recently for either price or supply, but it's possible someone has found a cheaper (Chinese?) part to work. We didn't do enough of these to make a business of it. Sorry.
