Yes, it is fixed. The problem was a bad ECU. I replaced the ECU and did not have any issues for the next 12K or so miles.

My ST is wired like the '07 and later version. My sensor wires were:
Left Sensor Wire-Red/Blue
Right Sensor Wire-Black
I cant check for sure but in the Haynes manual there are significant differences between the States and European wiring diagrams. I wonder if this is where the issue arises.

From time to time I get a PM'ed question about this thread. I decided to re-read it today and I am actually somewhat surprised it is still relevant and useful.

I sure hope a few folks get some help by learning from my misery.

It definitely is. Do you happen to know or remember what size deep socket is needed to remove the sensors?

No, I never actually removed the sensor. Getting a socket deep enough to work AND getting it between the end of the connector and the inside of the exhaust pipe was almost impossible. Before I removed it I confirmed it worked by reading the voltage with the engine running.

I never believed it was the sensor anyway and I doubt that your sensor is bad either.

It is still relevant and your misery is part of the forum knowledge now . . . a simple search on with " knock sensor " and it show up.

Recently , I had code 26 showed itself twice in this riding Season , on my 2003 .But it never stayed long enough to even affected the engine behavior .

I have associated this problem with the strange (MIL) multiple codes reading " ECU bug " I have experienced in August 2015 . . .
http://www.st1300.us.com/showthread.php?t=4725 . . .in post #3 there is only one constant . . . it is code 26 .

I am waiting for the problem to show itself and stay , to establish correct diagnostic . . . chasing this ghost code is not evident ,right now.
