RE: Installing an 02 sensor eliminator
Installed then rode around the neighborhood a while, initial impression was it was a bit smoother. Took the bike on a 1600 mile jaunt and tried to pay attention to "my latest mod", yeah it does make it a bit smoother. My gas mileage is still excellent, consistently in the lower to mid 50's.

If I had the skills necessary I'd do Aussieflyer's mod, but I don't.

RE: Installing an 02 sensor eliminator
Hi guys, im riding the RS and i just put on the o2 eliminators. Bike feels much more responsive but it could be a placebo. Anyways, after 30mins i started getting am efi light. Bike runs fine. Just the light. Anyone else have this problem? How do i get rid of the fault light?

You wrote "eliminators" (plural), so I am assuming you installed 2 plugs, ONE for each O2 Sensor. I have a single sensor on my 2014 Canadian, so it was easy to follow the lead from the sensor in the exhaust up to the connection behind the right side cover. With my bike the change was drastic and noticeably better, with engine braking reduced significantly making slow speed driving much more enjoyable. That may only be the case, however with the 4 into 1 exhaust. The affect on bikes with 4 into 2 (dual mufflers) may not be as noticeable.

Am I correct in understanding that the RS has the left bank sensor connector behind the left side cover and the right bank sensor connector behind the right side cover?

I think that the only time someone got an EFI light was when the Plug was put in the wrong location or they only installed ONE Plug on a bike that required TWO.

NOTE: There are at least two connectors behind the right side cover that look very similar...Only one of them leads to the O2 Sensor in the exhaust.

Hope this helps!

RE: Installing an 02 sensor eliminator
Yeah i have 2. I might go trace the wires again after you mentioned that some connectors look the same. But what i find funny is that i only got a fault light 30mins into riding and not immediately. Hmm.. suddenly i miss carbs haha

Playing with 02 sensor
What may happen to your bike if you take modification into your own hands without proper/technical knowledge....

"...O2 sensor works by constantly sending signal to ECU/ECM/PCM to help vehicle run efficiently as well as to reduce emissions...
... improperly working O2 results vehicle in running less efficiently...
....the wrong mix of gasoline and oxygen can increase pollutants that exit your bike exhaust, thereby harming the environment, as well as potentially causing your catalytic converter to fail or even damage your engine...."

>>>>>>> #1 CATALITIC CONVERTER KILLER IS HC <<<<<<<<<<<<

".... a properly working oxygen sensor is a necessity for any vehicle....."

I know , I will face a lot of criticism but at least, I told you the truth....

Good luck!!

RE: Installing an 02 sensor eliminator
My understanding is that the O2 sensor on the CB is there to allow a rich condition at startup and a lean condition as the motor warms. I replaced mine with an O2 emulator 2 years ago. It rid the bike of a slight stumble at low speed and part throttle. Bike runs better and fuel mileage has been unaffected.
