    I would certainly change lambda sensors only in pairs, and be sure to fit only genuine Denso ones

    by torque do you mean the 2 sensors at the top or the pair per bank?

    I changed a single one a few years ago with no issues.
    2 bikes, 2 cars, too little time to do them all justice. Yet.

    What code are you getting? Is it P1647? Bit of a bugger to do unless you've got small hands, but not a bad job.

    They're crucial to system performance and something that changes characteristics over time. Personally, I've only ever changed them in car sets, but I suspect that you would be able to get away with changing pairs
