    Yey or ney?

    Some people say it's required, others say not to use anything.

    depends if it is a taper thread on the sensor!! if it's a taper thread it will seal naturaly, but if it's a straight thread I would PTFE it to be safe....... I didn't on the RX and it's suprising the oil residue you get in the general areawhich attracts shit and looks untidy and like you have a propper leak!

    It can't hurt to use it surely? so worth using it as a precaution

    Need to rewire the sensors anyway and that area is constantly misted with oil...

    Will tape it all up and see what happens :)
