Default I Removed Baffles out but ......

I pulled baffles out from my 2016 straight shot guns exhaust .
and I love the sound, it is awesome , but got lot of backfire or popping going on now .
I was wondering to unplug O2 sensor but m'I going to do any damage to engine ?

i was reading on google to stop popping I should take to be mapped again but that cost around $800 .
is there any other cheeper way to stop popping or backfire ?



PS:
I got fuel command or power command what ever is name of the red box under the seats and K&N air filter

I just checked and O2 is already unplugged .

Taking the baffles out of your bike changed your fuel air ratio to. too lean. Your map was for what you had. Now it's not correct for what you have at present.

Have you asked the person who tuned your bike what they would charge for a second dyno tune?
It might be cheaper this time around, or not... Don't know till you ask.

I agree with what @Joe_ said ....you're out of tune now.
@myway What's $800aus equate to in US dollars? That seems very high, here in the states the Vic Pro's get around $300 for a full dyno tuning, the shop I use charges $250 for a full mapping and does touch-up tunes for $65
(I just looked up the currency exchange rates, $800aus is roughly $500us ....still on the high side for a tune) ...Anyway, If you plan on keeping your bike a long while and want to keep running "baffle-less" it would be a good idea to invest in a proper tune.

If your friends Harley has a carberator instead of fuel injection then he can adjust fuel ratio himself without going to a dealer or tuner.
Harley's are a different breed of motorcycle anyway. I've had a few. And I liked them but I really love my Victory. Big Difference.

You are running to lean and could burn a hole in a piston. Plus you need back pressure for the scooter to run right. I have seen it many time. Really load and no power. You destroyed your gas mileage.

Riding: 2011 XC
Sold: 2003 Vegas
Totaled: 2003 TC, But it's still on the road.
Sold: 2004 TC
This is Just the list of Victory's. I have also rode and owned Honda's, Kawasaki's, Suzuki's, Harley's. Some old European bike. Can't remember the name. It was a 3 speed and I started riding on a 50cc bike that Sears sold. Some time around 1967. I have had my motorcycle license since 1969.

First off Harleys have 90% better ECM then Vic's Harleys hasn't had a carburetor since 2000.
Your bike probably pop before you just never heard it with the baffles in.
How much pooping is there can you live with it. If not put baffles back in till you can afford a new tun

There is lots of popping going down hill or coming to traffic light, it will pop 4 to 5 times very quietly like very loud machine gun .
I will put tham back in and in few weeks i will book to shop to be tuned. I find bit cheaper dyno tune then Victory & Indie Dealer .

it will all worthet I just love that sound : uuuuuu so nice
