1000R 09 exhaust - aftermarket fitting

Discussion in 'Modifications and Projects' at netrider.net.au started by mmamster, Jan 10, 2010.

  1. All

    I am fitting a new pipe to my 09 fireblade.

    The stock exhaust has a second cable attached to it (first being the servo cable), it is electrical and seems to be a sensor of some sort. From reading other forums it is an o2 sensor I think and does not feature on USA spec blades. I have disconnected it from the stock pipe and followed the cable to as far as the engine cover near the gear lever. I can't figure out where it goes next or how to remove it.

    My question for anyone re this cable:

    1. what is it?
    2. with an aftermarket can, is it safe to remove it? How do I remove it?
    3. do I need an oxygen sensor eliminator plug - if so where do I plug it in.

    My problem is that courtesy of 1000rr.net I have the usa tech manual which doesn't cover any of this.:-({|=
