Just remembered! I have a spare sensor for my BMW motorcycle laying about the place somewhere (on loan to another rider I think, to test a fault on his bike...) - and it's the same BMW part (as mentioned earlier). That makes things a little easier.

BTW, the dual sensor is not a three wire deal (no common wire). Each of the two sensors is totally isolated from the other - electrically anyway. Thermally they are the same!
