G'day to all,
Coming back from a ride last week I noticed an oil leak on the left side of the bike. Recently I have performed a roller conversion to the bike, so my first thought was: OK, let's see what I screwed up.
After removing the left wing and gas tank I found the V of the engine soaked in oil. Checked the banjo bolts for the oil lines going to the cooler, they were fine. As I'm checking around I pray that I didn't damage the base gasket for the cylinders during the roller conversion.
At some point I unplugged the oil pressure switch and voila! connector dripping oil. The little bugger was leaking from the connector end.
No big deal, go to the AF1 site, lookup the part number and it's available. Run the payment and FedEx to my house.
When the part arrived to my house, this is what I received vs what i removed from the bike:[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]

Different threads, different diameter, different connector. Started doing some digging, seems that it's the correct "updated part", and it needs a male to female adapter, male M12x1.5 to female M10x1.0.
Not willing to wait, and realizing that the switch looked somehow familiar, further search shows that is the same oil pressure switch used in old BMW cars and Range Rover.
Crossed reference Beck Arnley P/N 201-1515. After a trip to my local NAPA store, came back with this:

Same thread, only difference is it uses an aluminum washer. Also same connector:

Total cost: $9.50.
You will need a 15/16 socket to install it. I will install it this week and if any problem arises I will update.
Best regards,

Thanks! My bike has been CONSTANTLY having a slow leak and no dealer has been able to fix it. I have it in the shop right now and hopefully this information will finally fix it.
Have you had any leaks yet after replacing this sensor?

The factory solution of the switch with a different thread and a spacer is really very half-arsed. It also has the problem that the spacer is a dirty great hexagonal thing and can foul the alternator. Far better to get a switch with the correct thread and be done with it.

This may not help the southern contingent but RockAuto has the Beck/Arnley switch p/n 201-1515, described above for ummm like six bucks. Looks like it fits every four wheeled BMW ever made.

Sorry for the late response,
I injured my back a couple of weeks ago and was unable to ride the bike for an extended period. Finally this past weekend I was able to test it properly.
Installation went fine, oil pressure light went off as soon as the engine came to life. No immediate leaks.
After a longer ride everything seems fine. No visible leaks from the sensor or warning messages from the dash.
The aftermarket sensor did the trick for me.

I also used the Land Rover aftermarket switch. Only issue is the nut is larger and installs in a tight spot.Was able to get it tightened up however.
