    oil pressure switch 92 R100RS

    Hi all
    Do I remove the air line in order to make room for the socket and ratchet ... will I end up needing to bleed air from somewhere or just tighten back up after changing the switch ?
    Thanks

    My 85R80RT has all of the same plumbing and the fairing. I used a deep 24mm thinwall socket with a universal joint to remove that oil pressure switch the first time it started drooling.

    When I was a kid, I loved to look at the Craftsman tools in the Sears catalogue and I would see the crowfoot wrench sets and I would ask myself "what are those good for?". They're also OK for getting that dang oil pressure switch off. However, a 24mm open end crowfoot might be harder to find than the correct socket.

    Use a deep socket, no need to bleed anything. Make sure you have a new crush washer.
