Default Unplugged 02 sensors

Doing so took some of the "ass" out of the throttle, still backfires but not as much, added 25 miles to a tank of gas. 1st 2 do not bother me, but happy to pick up the extra DTA

I thought unplugging O2 sensors let it run richer / less back firing and less mileage. Am I wrong?

Completely the opposite of my 2012 CCT. When I un-plugged my O2 sensors I lost 2.5mpg and the popping greatly increased in frequency. I only left them un-plugged for a 100 mile ride and quickly plugged them back in as soon as the bike cooled off. Strange.

All the best,

Not sure how to read that.
Is "ass" in your throttle a good thing or a bad thing?

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

And the star-spangled banner in triumph shall wave
O'er the land of the free and the home of the brave!
