Chris recommends unplugging the 02 senor as a precaution. Since the 02 is disabled in the ECU there is really no need to unplug it. I had mine plugged in after the ECU flash and then removed the 02 sensor a week later and there was no difference.

Make sure you tell Chris to disable the "decel fuel cut" or he will leave it enabled by default.

Is that the excessive popping? I said NO (As in I do not want it to pop)
The popping on deceleration is very mild with my Hindle slip-on, and I have no block off plates. Disabling the decel fuel cut will smooth out the throttle response by keeping the injectors on all the time. If you don't mind the jerky on/off throttle then leave it enabled.

If you still have the stock catalytic converter installed, it’s really not gonna pop at all. You probably won’t notice it.

You can unplug the 02 sensor and leave it in the header or remove altogether. That's up to you. It was recommended to unplug the 02 sensor. I know some don't do it but I did as recommended.
Plan on unplugging it and leave it in the header if I can find the plug end?
So far I haven't been able to trace it to find the actual plug.

it is underneath that thin rubber protection layer on top of the engine.

All you’ve gotta do is follow the wire back.

Got the Exhaust installed along with the Air Filter and disconnected the O2 sensor, Now waiting on the ECU to get back!
Hopefully will get it back together this weekend! I can't wait to hear it and get back on the road!

Nice to see you went with a high mount 3/4 slip-on. These slip-on’s make great power, and even though it’s not a full system. I have still seen 118WHP on Chris Moore’s dyno, with the exact Akropovich Slip-on, with stock headers (GUTTED CAT). The bike had like 6,200 miles on it, so it was broken in nicely. And the exact same slip-on exhaust, and gutted cat stock header. Hi-mounts make great top end HP, and they’re not obnoxiously loud either. Also, you may want to remove the silencer.

^^^This with the Akro 3/4 slip-on, and gutted cat header, made similar WHP numbers to a ZX6R with a Graves full system. Albeit, it was the Graves shorty low mount system, and the bike barely had 500 miles on it. But still.

All back together!
A little hiccup right of idle but I may have my idle set too low. Other than that it rips. So smooth now!
I can tell the front end comes up much easier now and surprised it is not as loud as I expected but sounds fantastic
Finally got rid of that annoying engine braking, let off the throttle slightly and it doesn't want to slow down.
Only got to go a few miles before the rain set in but so far (crossed fingers) no engine lights!
very happy and will give more results once I can ride it more!

I see you painted your stock windsheild. What paint did you go with?

Do you have the dB killer installed in your silencer? I believe there is a bolt on the side of the silencer, and you can remove that dB killer. I think they are pre-installed from the factory.



Also, hey what screw size is that you replaced the reflector with?

Oh and that carbon fiber Akro footpeg mount is awesome looking. Have you seen them?

I ordered the OEM bolts but you can also use the Black ones from the OEM exhaust from the pipe guards, just make sure to use the plastic washers on the fender.
