Default Torque Tubes - simple install - Can anyone help?

Subject should have said "simple install question" - sorry for the confusion!

I'm putting in some glorious Torque Tubes this weekend on my 2006 Hammer and am about 85% done. I also replaced the throttle body adaptor which was getting dried out and cracked, figured there was no better time for that preventative maintenance item.

Here is my question - what do I do with the Air Temp sensor and MAP sensor that were both plugged into the original air box? (circiled in red on pic)

The instructions did not reference what to do with these and I wasn't sure if I should unplug them or leave them plugged up and just wire tied somewhere?

Thanks to anyone that can assist!

Not sure about the MAP... but my air temp sensor is just zip tied to the frame near the filters.

How about this:

HC, you have the T tubes right?? And you don't know where the MAP goes?? Bike won't run without it. Temp sensor should be in the intake air flow but where you have it will work. Must have had it installed right?
The cost of those things and no info on what to do with sensors. Wow
Let me know if Im full of shet cause I usually am. Can't believe this hasen't been discussed before.
Need info, how many have the torque tubes ?

I have to grow old but I don't have to grow UP.thumb up. 2010 Jackpot.

I did end up finding a comment in the instructions where it said to just tie up any sensors, so that's what I did.

Air temp I fastened to the front center frame piece so it sits right above the two filters and should pick up whatever temp air those filters are pulling in.

The MAP sensor I just tied to the space between the frame and the throttle body. I think that sensor is supposed to pick up airflow pressure going into the throttle body and adjust fuel/timing. Obviously it won't be sensing much of anything where it is now.

I've got a Victory dealership near me that has a dyno so I'll let them have it soon to get everything mapped and tuned for the best results.
I didn't get these for the looks, although they excel in that area while cleaning up the front nicely, and the whole assembly felt really well made!

I put them on my bike. The sensors are just zip tied up. It will run great with them there. My bike has had no problems

How long did it take you guys that installed them?
Also, was there a noticeable difference after installed?

It was very noticeable. It took about 45 min but I had already cut the stock air box out.
