    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.
