F650 Single - Correct generic oil pressure switch?

The pressure switch on my wife's 02 F650 single is leaking and dead. I grabbed a PS177 from Napa, but the threads are incorrect. The BMW switch that came out has fine threads and the PS177 has course threads. Is there a generic available that has the correct threads?

i bought a new switch from the bmw dealer for my 02 dakar and got home and the threads were different too, so i took it back and they said it was the right replacement switch but they forgot to give me the adapter fitting to use it. so i got the adapter from them and it had a 90 degree turn but works perfect.

The damn adapter from BMW is like $70 or something. My wife took PS177 (OP6065) (M12x1.5 threads) back and exchanged it for OP6112. The threads on OP6112 (M10x1 threads) are correct, just a touch longer. Well, I installed it and the light immediately came on. Did some checking and it appears that the stock switch is 0.3-0.6 bar and OP6112 is 1.4 bar.

Fail.

Back to the drawing board.

I hear word that they still stock the old style switch as the adapter and new switch is apparently not used on the F650 classics. Ill do some part # diggin tonight.

Update: Napa PN OP6066 (OP6066SB) has the exact same pressure rating and same thread pitch. I'll grab it tomorrow and see what happens.

i got mine from the dealer and i think i paid about 14.00 for the switch and about 30.00 for the adapter. i thought that was a great price for the switch but a lot for a 90 degree piece of brass.

Grabbed Napa PN OP6066 tonight and installed it. It seems to work just fine. The design is a touch different than the stock BMW replacement piece, but thus far, it appears not to leak. We'll see how long it lasts, but I think it fixed it. It was around $10. In case anyone needs to grab one with no Napa around, here is a link with all the other vehicles it fits.

Now the one on my 1100 is leaking. Ill pull it out this week and see if its the same part. Arrgghh, if it's not one thing its another.

She hasnt rode it yet due to the socket in the tail light housing melting and not correcty holding a bulb in. But dont worry, i have a Napa fix for that too, gimme a day or two. I have started the bike and let it warm up a bit a couple times and, no leaks yet. YMMV, so good luck. I think it's OK though. Yup, you can purchase it online. Just search for the part number and you should get any number of local (to your country) web sites that sell it. You can prob just buy it from a local parts store. It fits a ton of cars.

I asked about this at the parts counter and it apparently does not matter. Good luck. Let me know how it turns out.

Cry Oil pressure switch

NAPA does not ship worldwide... Arghhh.

Don't you have a mom and pop auto parts store in your area? Just click on the link above and ask them for a switch that fits any of the listed vehicles. We used to do it that way in Japan and for us at least, it worked great.

In singapore, stealerships, mechanics and such are not
motivated to help DIY fixers... No offence
For example they will BS you like.... Ohhh BMW bearings very expensive, only can get from dealer,
must use OEM,.. BLAH BLAH...
I will just tell them off, BMW do not make their own bearings and walk off..
And my comes off..
Well story of my life..
Anyway thanks for your help. Will update when the funduro switch arrive..Ride safe..

Oil pressure switch

Ok my oil pressure switch arrived today
It bolts up. No need for the new kit
Part no ELA43441
This is the pressure switch for the funduro model.
I would rather use the switch crackhead recommended but since NAPA do not ship overseas and
no love from my local auto parts dealers I ordered from
Motorworks from UK.
$40 Singapore dollars = $30USD plus ship.
7days shipping time.
The new switch uses 24mm wrench rather than the 22mm for the original.
