Thank you soooo much. It didn't look factory, but I knew it was important since there's a sensor wire connected to it at the brass fastener. I'll do my research as you suggested or just make one. You are GREATLY appreciated!!!Somebody built a relocation plate that wasn't very well thought through. It cracked.
Search our MARKETPLACE for a Sensor / Coil Relocation Plate.
There are some that relocate a bunch of stuff.
There are two that are very small plates that single-bolt to that same fastener location and can mount the temperature sensor on your plate. The picture is too dark so I cannot see if another item is on the part of the plate still attached.
Hopefully one of the members here has pictures of one or both of the little plates.
Or just get a piece of aluminum and whack-together a little plate just big enough.
The temperature sensor doesn't like to be tightened very much, overtightening it's mounting fastener can fail the sensor.
Thanks @alanh. I really appreciate that, and the bracket looks way better. I'll definitely be making one of those tonight. And removing the foam. I just got my warrior and can see I have alot to learn. And you guys have all the answers!!! If it wasn't for this forum, I wouldn't even have known I already had a BAK. I was doing research on how to do it b4 I even raised the tank, lol.@BabyMagic ... you can toss the OEM foam air cleaner cover as it serves no useful purpose with your BAK.
You can downsize the sensor bracket and face the IAT (Intake Air Temperature) sensor forward as shown below where it won't be influenced by engine temperature.

I most certainly do!!! How much and how can I pay you???By coincidence I'm going through my spares and ran across this. If you need it let me know.
