Got the O2 Sensor bung welded in. I appreciate the input and pics. Also painted the exhaust manifold with VHT Paint and wrapped in DEI Titanium Exhaust Wrap. If you decide to wrap the pipes get 50' of wrap. I used their calculator and it said like 25'. not including the cross over pipe. Got the exhaust manifold wrapped (barely) but not enough to do the cross over.

Let me know how that location works out for you. I have mine in the right side muffler pipe and I'm having a tough time getting AutoTune to work properly. It keeps pulling fuel from my map. It had one of my cells down to -50.

After spending a long time on the phone with a tech at Dynojet he is just as baffled as I am. The only theory he came up with was somehow the O2 sensor location is not getting a smooth air flow though I can't see how. I can't see how relocating the O2 bung closer to the crossover will change anything.

2010 Voyager 1700 ABS with heated seats, Grasshopper backrest, Kuryakyn highway pegs and an Ipod because the radio reception fades in and out. Also has a gear whine, fuel gauge that fluctuates too much and a pathetic cooling system.

Thanks for the info still need to wrap my exhaust was wondering on amount to use. Auto tune seems like the way to go with mods. May have to upgrade to it when I do the intake system.

wbilotta,
Waiting on my PCV, was back ordered and should be shipping this week. I will let you know how it works out.

maxtech1,
I ordered 35' and tried to use 1/4" overlap per DEI's guideline. Just ordered an additional 15' to finish the crossover pipr.

Thanks this information helps. Looking to seal my throttle body add a Thunder air kit, PCV, and wrapping the exhaust in Dec when I am home. I will have to have the bung welded on too. Going to keep the factory exhaust to make the wife happy.

wbilotta,
did you gat to the bottom of your problem? I have a friend who has a 2009 1700 classic doing the same thing. He installed the o2 sensor in the cross over pipe where the standard o2 is on the Aussie bikes. We cannot get it to tune, it keeps leaning the mixture out and makes the bike almost unrideable.

Nope, auto tune is still pulling fuel from my map.
