It'll run a bit richer, that's all. How about completing your profile and a signature? Help us so we can help you.

If I unplug my o2s won't it throw a code and how will that affect the engine
I think that if unplugging O2 sensors threw a code, not too many folks would recommend it.

No it won't throw a code... at least it didn't on mine.
I even have a video on how I unplugged mine.

The ECM is pretty stupid on these bikes. If you unplug them both; it has nothing to compare against, and does not trigger a CEL. If you only unplug one it sees a problem
Well that's a relief. I'm not alone. My ECM is stupid too. All that's left is to determine who is stupider and I have my suspicions.

Tim, looks like you have a cross bike. Is it stock? if so then try unplugging and ride for a day. See how it runs after an hour or 50 miles or so. If it starts to pop and spit and act like it doesn't like having them unplugged then plug'em back up.

Some here leave then unplugged with no issues. Others have had issues and plugged them back in.

Like Kevin said....."these ECM's are pretty stupid" Listen to this guy he knows what he's talking about as you will see as you venture deeply into this forum and other Vic forums.

Happy riding to you. Enjoy the Vic.

Does running richer mean slightly cooler by chance?
