Just fit new slip on to my '08 1000RR but no lambda socket?!

I have today received my long awaited FMF Apex from US. Have it already fitted it to my beloved '08 CBR 1000RR...


The bike now sounds deep and throaty from idling and evil and serious at anything past 6000rpm :love: ...


I also like the CF finish. However the midpipe does NOT come with socket for the lambda sensor like the original OEM pipe?! I ran the bike without Lambda Sensor for a small test run and no check engine fault came on but I fear that it will run rich (create additional problems?). The ECU will have one less input as it stands..


I thought of drilling the midpipe, buying a metric SS nut and welding it onto it to fit the sensor. What do you think?!


Please do let me know your thoughts. Thanks!

Does your bike need a remap for the new exhaust anyway? Without the Lambda sensor the bike will use the map loaded....the Lambda sensor gives feedback on the O2 levels in the exhaust and the ECU will alter the fuelling to keep the O2 levels correct. But my understanding is that these changes are normally quite small.

I don't know how it works on Honda's....but if you check out the Triumph RAT forum there's some fairly extensive info on Lamda sensors and ECU set-ups. It's quite common on Triumphs to remove the Lambda sensors and SAI and run custom maps when fitting aftermarket exhausts....which often have the Lambda malfunction warning signal disabled.... :wink:

Look on the dynojet website for the oxygen sensor eliminator,no need then for the lambda sensor.

Give them a call to make sure.
