Exhaust Sensor
« on: Jan 11, 2022, 06:37 PM »
Recently I replaced the exhaust sensor with a relay and plugged off the hole in the exhaust. This modification available on evil bay has transformed the performance of the bike. It is now more responsive and smoother. As yet I have not noticed any change in fuel consumption, but it is early days.
As another other member fitted this product?.

Any chance of more info on what you have done and where you found the bits to do it?

u made it more American  :138: :138:

people have talked about it and used used booster type plugs to fool the ecu what the exhaust sensor was doing or one person fitted an American ECU I think. Not heard of that specific mod before , as old plodder, any further detail

Yes I fitted an American ECU which allowed the oxygen sensor to be disconnected completely, made my bike far more pleasant to ride, with no low speed jerkiness and I could run a higher gear at low speed.

Colleagues, I purchased the Oxygen 02 Sensor Eliminator Kit, from e-bay. First I just uncoupled the sensor and installed the relay. After a week I removed the sensor and plugged of the hole. The plug provided was to big, so I obtained a plug from a plumbing suppliers.
The Bikes throttle response is much smoother than before, and at around 70 the bike does not feel that it is holding back, to just smoothly increases speed until I reach my limit. The exhaust note is has also changed, it is more deeper sound. The prise of the kit was 11.95, including postage. Still not noticed any decrease in miles per gallon.

Intrestiing. Once you had fitted the relay , was there a noticable diffrence between having the sensor left in and removing completly?

The sensor was disconnected from the wiring loom, so does not communicate at all.

That's good to hear, I've bought the same item as I've got the error 33 so before I fiddled around with cleaning the sensor or replacing it, was worth a tenner trying the eliminator.
Did you have to do the 3x 10 minute runs to clear the FI light?

you said you fitted the relay but left the sensor in for a week before removing and fitting the blank,. What I am intrested to know is was there an difference between have the sensor left in and disconnected and when you removed it and fitted the blank.

Leaving the sensor attached to the exhaust, but disconnected from the wiring loom, does not affect the relay modification. I enjoy riding the bike more & more with each passing day, But lately getting a little cold for the old bones.

Keep riding, it is not that cold if you have the correct clothing and attachments. Closing in on 50 years Riding, scary.  :5:
