ECU flash done, need to disconnect O2 sensor

I have a 2016 Voyager 1700. I am putting the ECU back in today and I need to disconnect the O2 sensor. I don't have a shop manual. What is the best way to go about this?

Thanks!

Just folle the cable from the sensor on the right exhaust. IIRC there is a plug ~ 15-20cm from the sensor, which can be disconnected easy.

Just unplug it - done !

Is there a trick to unplugging it? I'm pulling pretty hard on mine and it won't let go

Cheers

It has a small clip to prevent accidental unplug

Be aware that unplugging the O2 sensor may give an Error signal, due to the break in the heater circuit

Yes, thanks. Error signal is there but sending out ECU tomorrow for reflash.

Without an O2 sensor in the system the autotune cannot function correctly

Kawasaki (as with all other manufacturers) went to a lot of time & cost to develop an ecu that would fulfill all requirements, including emissions regulations - modern ecus are pretty sophisticated & can rapidly adjust to the majority of mods that we choose to fit - exhausts etc

All ecu's are set to a 14.7 Air/Fuel ratio to meet Emission regs - 13.8 generally gives the best overall performance

The simplest & least expensive power improver is *from my own personal experience) is the Magnum Dyna Boost - wjhich "spoofs" the air inlet temperature, effectively richening the fuel inject over the whole range closed to WOT & injects a millivolt signal into the O2 sensor that "spoofs" the ecu seeing 14.7, when infact it's closer to the 13.8

There's a single adjustment screw zero to 33 turns, so lots of adjustment - it can be dyno'd however, l found half a turn before every ride until I was more than happy with the performance

If not happy, just wind the screw back a turn or so until you are

Mine runs at 6 turns from zero

Fantastic 450klm ride today - 24-25klm/litre - mixed highway 120kph (more or less) country back roads etc

I also use Pulstar spark plugs
