Could do with some help :) Exhaust wise..

I have just bought an Akropovic Evo full race system for my bike (ZX10R 06)

I have a couple of questions for anyone in the know

Emmision sensors (mid pipe/before the cat)

How do i remove these, is it simply a case of unscrewing them and removing them and unplugging the sensors from the loom? if so, will this give me any fault lights?

Exhaust Servo

Located under the seat. Opperates on cables to the section just after the cat. Can i just remove all this stuff and again have no FE lights or anything come on?

Feedback appreciated

You need to disconnect the cables from the servo and leave it plugged in, and if you have an O2 sensor , you will need to buy the eliminator kit for it, or weld an O2 bung in the new exhaust and use the sensor ,if it doesnt come with one already in the pipe.

With all due respect, i aint welding nuffin onto a full race Akropovic system :)

But, your other points make sense and thank you, remove everything but the servo...............

**Edit**

Sorry misread your post........I dont "think" there is anywhere for the 02 sensors to go on the full race acro system (dont get it till Saturday) hence can i just take them off and not suffer with any error lights comng on the dash?

Not sure about 06, but my 04 Evo System has the bung already there.

Make sure you do not touch the sensors when you have them out, the oil from your skin can ruin the sensor.

Well I had the full race akra and it does come with a thread hole in each pipe for you to screw in the O2 sensors. I be surprised if it comes without. If so just buy 2 dynojet eliminators and plug it right into your harness. you will need these if you plan on racing and is finicky about your fuel map, as the original sensors will tend to lean it out, but only within a certain rpm range. Exhaust servo as mentioned above.

Euhm, shouldn't you get this done together with the full system?? Your airflow, fuel mixture, motor management will be all f*cked up if you put in the full system without PCIII, airfilter and dyno the bike with custom mapping!!

Good luck in Catalunya!
