Knock sensor. Can it wear out 06 vlx

Recommended Posts

 I was winterizing my boat like I do every year and I took the knock sensor out to release the water from the block and it seems as the knock sensor is really short or at least shorter than it has been in the past. What is this thing actually do and is it possible for her to wear out And need to be replaced?

They definitely corrode away, I replaced the one in our 05 this fall.

Does it have to be a marine version?

We picked up one from O's while getting some other stuff - cost about the same as the skidimm version but doesnt have red stuff on treads.

The red stuff is just pre-applied pipe dope.  I don't think there is a "marine version" of the old style sensor, which is why they rot out
