Question VFC III Oxygen sensor ?

Hi ,
Just bought a 2008 Kingpin with a VFC III already installed. I notice that the exhaust oxygen sensor is still connected. Shouldnt the oxygen sensor be disconnected as part of the VFC install?

Tks

According to the installation instructions the O2 sensors should be disconnected.

Yes, what blueracer17 said. Disconnect the stock OČ sensors, and leave them disconnected. The VFCIII does not use the stock OČ sensors (or any OČ sensor for that matter).

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

Do you mean the 02's are still in the pipes (thats ok )
or are then wires un hooked. Most guys just un hook the wires.
You might have to re map the VFC now

Question

it's stil in pipes and still hooked up. Does the vfc just not use they or will it not work as well when the o2 sensors are hooked up?
