I was told by the service shop at the dealership my map sensor needs replacing after they did some diag on the digital wrench. Now the dealership is charging me $350 to replace it. That is including $150 for the diagnoistic, $100 for 1 hr lablor to install and $100 for the part. I think $150 is a it to high for just diag work and will probably not take my bike back to this place again. I bought my bike at this dealer btw.

Now has anyone replaced the map sensor on a 2010 vegas? I looked all over the server manual but it does not show. I know I will need to remove the gas tank for better access. Looking at the picture it looks like a striaght pull off and replace install with no screws to mess with.

Reason I took my bike in for service was for stumbling and dieing at idle. I did do the bettery check, changed spark plugs, sprayed for air leaks. I think this dealer is overcharging me and I might save $100 by doing it myslef. Little strapped for cash atm after my wife's operation.

Not to memtion these bastards are 35 miles from my house.:mad:

Thanks for the ebay suggestion. Didn't even think to check there. Found a used one for under 50 bucks. Still have to pay those highway robbers 150 for the diag. IMO shouldn't cost more then 70 and I would pay that price. It looks like a simple unplug and replug job. This should save me 150 at least. thumb up

Thanks byte2nit for the website and part number. Turns out there are a few websites that has it for under 70 new. I got the part number so it wouldn't hurt to try local auto parts store. Heck I bought my ngk plugs from a auto parts store. I found a few pics of a camaro map sensor but it looks like the v92 bike map sensor and not for 2010+ yr bikes.

In case someone needs help remove and replacing the map senor on a 2010 vegas (may be the same for kingpin and 8ball) it is pretty simple. It is on the right side behind the IAC. no need to remove gas tank. If you have big hands then you may have to remove the IAC but I just have to losen the right side cover mount and I was able to get my hand in to remove the map sensor. I tried cleaning it with map sensor cleaner but turns out there was a crack on the sensor bulb. Mine was very dirty with dirt, oil and all kinds a grime on it. Since its easy to remove I may just clean it every 6 months. I'll do a write up with pic on another thread since this is not in the manual.

You might explain to that dealer how you are feeling about his prices and if he'd like to keep you as a customer, he needs to compromise. If he tells you to take a flying leap, at least you gave him the chance to be more reasonable before burning that bridge.

Just replaced my map sensor today and my bike is still stumbling at idle and check engine light coming on. Do I have to ride the bike a little for the computer to relearn? The stumbling is there cold or hot engine. I might try some seafoam in the gas see if its dirty injectors. The code the bike is giving is P0171, dealer ran the test 3 times each time same code came up so they say the map sensor is bad. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

I had this stumbling issue with my harley and after fighting it for 2 years I sold my bike. Hope I don't have same issue with my victory bike. :(
