Where to install o2 wideband sensor

Hi Guys,

I'm asking your advice where to install wideband o2 sensor? I have stock header, Akrapovic titanium link pipe and slip on.

I marked few possible locations.

I've understood if I use wideband to narrowband adapter and mount o2 sensor to stock location, reading are not reliable?

I have also difficulties find welder who could successfully weld bung on thin titanium link pipe.

I saw there are "no weld o2 bung mounts" available. Are are these reliable? Lifetime / possible leakages?

Should I remove stock narrowband bung and weld wideband bung on stock location?

I would be very grateful for all recommendation / advices.

Thanks

I'm in the same situation, the best way would be to remove the headers and get the 12mm narrrow band bung mad into a 18mm wideband, but pulling the headers is a pain in the arse.

So, i intend to get the 18mm bung i have, welded about halfway between points B & C on your picture.

What!! Almost 1200$ of exhaust and doesn't even have a wideband bung? Anyway the best thing to do is weld a new bung to the link pipe in the B position. And rememder, Titanium pipe=Titanium bung, a steel one will not work fine.

If youd purchased a Graves exhaust the lambda receiver for the wide band is installed! Anyway Id locate it as anywhere from A to B.

Unlike US, Euro models (and I belive AU models too) gen 4 came with O2 sensor, so the link pipe had the bung to install the stock sensor. Since on gen 5 the O2 sensor is in the headers, the link pipe bung is not more needed for normal operations. Considering the fact that many people install autotune or similars, a pre-installed wideband bung is a great move, that many manufactures did, but not Akrapovic.

Not adding an 18mm sensor bung in an aftermarket exhaust designed for sport bikes will surely narrow your prospective buying audience.

I spoke with shop who does custom exhausts. They can't weld titanium but could easily copy titanium link pipe to stainless steel one with 18mm bung. If price reasonable I go with this option. Will see tomorrow.

I know re the EU/AU spec bike, as I have a AU bike but it baffles me that an aftermarket link pipe wouldnt have a wide band bung.
