After much inverstigation (and a dyno run) I found one of my o2 sensors to be completely stopping the fuel to one of the cylinders on my 900 when cruisng :mad:

After trawling ebay and the internet (non for sale in UK) I priced them up at a kawi dealer to find they cost nearly as much as the average family home.
I then found a thread on another kawi site showing how to remove them and insert resistors into the plugs to render them redundant http://www.kawasakimotorcycle.org/forum/kawasaki-cruisers/104283-o2-sensor-eliminator.html

I have done this and the bikes been fine so far. I'm just looking for reasurance that this is ok and wont cause other problems furter down the line.

You're good to go. The ECU reverts to a default setting when there's no input coming from the sensor.
