Default PC-V and O2 sensors

I know there's plenty of theory but I'd like to hear from those who are running with a PC-V and who have disconnected the O2 sensors.

Did you notice a difference good or bad?
Did you end up reconnecting your sensors?
Does the PC-V override the narrow band sensors and not to bother?

Again, only for those who can speak of first hand knowledge. Not looking for another 60+ page thread like the Cobra PowerPro thread. Just real world feedback. The PC-V I put on my 2009 Street Glide came with caps for the factory O2 sensors once they were disconnected. Since this kit didn't have any, I'm wondering if it's DynoJets intent for us to leave them alone.

For me, it's all good!

Especially, with the Lloydz drop in cams and the Dyno Tune from a trusted mechanic and tuner. Lots of extra HP, which never goes out of style. The o2 sensors are still disconnected.

Um, pretty sure it says in the instructions that you need to disconnect your O2 sensors. You don't need to remove them from the header pipes, just disconnect about 10" up from the sensor at the connector.

Had exhaust modified by Coastal Victory/Hot Vic when I bought it. They also installed the (then) new Lloyd's performance air filter. Shortly after, Kyle installed a Lloyd's IAC Valve and disconnected the O2 sensors.

After that I didn't like look of the O2 sensors and wiring, so I removed them and put in plugs that I painted to match the pipes with Hi Temp engine Paint.

Runs Great and Looks much cleaner than with O2 sensors

Never connect the stock O2s with a PC or VFC- it'll fight the controller and throw off your tune.

why would you come here and ask us. I would think the smart thing would be to go to power comander and ask them.
Seeing how harley use narrow band and we don't why would you ask about apples and oranges

He's a member of this forum, like me and you and we ask questions of each other. Is there a written SOP that we're given that prohibits us from asking questions? That's a rhetorical question.

LOL

Btw, what's a SOP? I heard of SOB, so does the "P" stand for Peach here?

Please add your bike's year and model to your signature. Here's why.

O'er the land of the free and the home of the brave!
