    Oxygen Sensor Eliminator

    Hi,

    Question for the tuners and technically minded.

    Has anybody successfully fitted an O2 sensor eliminator to a later model year Crosstourer? I've searched related threads, but very little has been discussed in the last few years.

    My 2018 isn't playing game, and despite claims to the contrary, isn't compatible for some reason. Not wishing to start a debate on the pros and cons, but disconnecting the sensors on my bike has been very positive for softer throttle response. I know the reason for fitting the eliminator is to fool the ECU into not lighting up the Malfunction Indicator Light and this being achieved by placing a resistor across the sensor heater circuit. I can live with the light being on (just) but it would be nice to get rid of it. I'm just wondering if the ECUs are more sophisticated on later bikes?

    Thanks in advance

    Dave

    You might not want to debate the merits of deleting the O2………but………..it might be the dumbest thing ever.

    O2 is required to adjust the fuel mixture.  Lack for fuel control will result in an overly rich or overly lean mixture.   Both not going to a solve any problems perceived or real.
    The catalyst will be damaged and soon be non functionals and possibly cause an exhaust blockage.

    Feedback loop fueling control might be the best thing that has happened to all engines since FI became mainstream.

    Carry on ……….. :087:

    There's always someone who can't help themselves. It's like tourettes.

    Yep Pickaxe, I would like to know the answer to your question as well.
    The O2 disconnect question, that is.

    I wonder what tourettes man will say if I tell him I put a VFR-F wheel with a 190/55 tire on, I didn't even bother to paint it black :-)
    Oh and I put in a 30mm lift kit, just for fun.
    AND over the winter I will fit my full Delkevik system, just to make a noise. That'll be with the O2 sensors disconnected, just because I can :-)

    Regards
    Andy

    I haven't found a solution to the mil light and hide it with a self adhesive disc that looks fine.

    The engine is just a joy now and fuels beautifully under all conditions.

    Be careful the OE parts Police don't catch you.🙂

    Yes, those are what we're discussing. They do no more than keep the FI light off, however, don't seem to work on later MY bikes.
    The bolts are to plug the holes if you decide to remove the sensors from the down pipes. I've done that but it's not necessary straight away.

    Ah, cool. I am curious to try this. It's not really breaking the bank. As long as it doesn't break anything on the bike...
