crank angle sensor

Hey all, Navy here.
If the dealer states they no longer make the crank angle sensor, is there a sensor from a different engine that can be used in its place. :?: I have the fuel injection. GL1200 limited
Navy out.

Found the picture of the Ns sensor on my bike, relocated to the top position and probably a substitute, works well:



Here is a picture of the original location with the sensor installed in the lower position (found on line):

I would like to thank you all for the help. New sensor is in, adjusted per specs. Injectors still not working. Is there anything else I'm missing? Have spark to all cylinders, just no fuel. Any help?

Did I read somewhere that the 1200 go used a sending off the cam for fuel pulse?

Can I ask how you determined the injectors are not working?
I have to use a oscilloscope to see the pulse.
Is there sufficient fuel pressure feeding them?

After trying to start is, I checked the injectors to see if they were wet. Number 3 was very wet, others were dry. Mind you the bike set for about 3 years before I got it. The bike would start with starter fluid.

From your description , I personally would procede in this way.Keep in mind that I diagnose,identify,verify and then repair.
First check the fuel pressure at the injectors.
Resistance check each injector.
Swap the wet one with a dry one.leave it loose where you can see the fuel spray.This can test the electric.
Take every fire and fuel spray precaution for this test.
See if the one injector is operating or leaking.
"Feel or listen" if the dry injector is pulsing to verify the electric is working.
Clean or replace the injectors as needed.They may be plugged.

Thanks for the information. Will swap the injectors around to see.
