Default Removing O2 sensors.

I currently have the PCV and the o2 sensors are disconnected. Has anyone just removed them for the sake of aesthetics? If so what kind of plug did you use to fill the bung in the pipe?

Thanks

Brian

You can buy O2 plugs from Witchdoctors, he's a great guy with excellent service. Picked up a pair from him, check out his store, he has a lot of great stuff for Victory's!

Might want to order a magnetic drain plug from him while your at it!

Call a couple of automotive exhaust shops and you'll most likely find some for free or very little $$.

I ordered my Lloyds filter, and want to do a computer then the dyno. Should I pull the plugs? Or have the dyno guy recommend it? I have a set of Big Honker pipes.

Just be sure to use a little anti-sieze when putting the bung plugs in - if you don't you may not be able to get them back out.

Default O2 sensors removal-need guidance?

Can someone please tell us what tool/s you used to remove o2 sensors?
With my large selection of tools, I was not able to figure out how to remove. Not enough room to manuver any of my tools to accomplish.
Hope we do not have to break free the exhaust from the motor?

Any help will be appreciated.

Thanks and stay safe!
