O2 Sensor Removal

Has anyone done this? I ordered some from British Legends and was planning to install them and turn off the O2 with TuneECU, just curious if anyone has done this yet or has any experience with this? Thoughts? I figured I can always do it and see what happens.

TuneECU allows you to shutoff the O2 sensors electronically so why bother?

Sensors are sensitive, if turned off they can go south, best to remove them if not being used.

O2 sensors removed, physically disconnected them, switched off with tuneecu. Bike runs great, smoother at low rpm and lower throttle settings. Noticeably better.

So you just unplugged them and installed plugs in the bungs? No resistors? TuneECU handles the MIL?

Yep. No resistors needed. Reset error codes and off I went. Just need to figure out the stupid cruise control error.

Wish TuneECU had come out sooner. Installing the PCV (reinstalling the battery box) was a PITA. Don’t relish the idea of uninstalling it (and won’t).

Well I removed the O2 sensors, installed O2 eliminators and plugged the bungs. Fired up the bike and got errors:

P0131 - Oxygen sensor 1 short circuit to ground
P0151 - Oxygen sensor 2 short circuit to ground
P1574 - Cruise is Disabled due to other malfunction

I can clear the errors but they just pop up again when I run the bike. I was hoping the O2 eliminators would work thus avoiding having to overwrite the ECU (I have PCV installed). Has anyone had success with O2 eliminators? I have TuneECU as a last resort.

Update: I just confirmed that I installed the wrong version. Seller is sending me the correct O2 eliminators. I’ll try this before committing to the ECU change.
