Free Spirit Exhaust Header
« on: January 17, 2020, 12:46:41 PM »
Hi
I was wondering if anyone has fitted the Free Spirit Exhaust Header which does awat with the CAT.  If so does it do away with the sensor?

What year 800 you got?

If it's 10-14 you can turn off the O2 sensor in tuneecu, remove it and fit an appropriate bolt in it's place. 15 on you can't.

Im curious why would someone want to turn off / remove the sensor? Is there a benefit in doing so?

It's mainly there for emissions testing. Which happens in a lab with the throttle held at a constant position. Don't know about you but on the road it is almost impossible to hold the throttle at a totally constant setting. Even CC varies to keep a constant speed.
Mine's been off and removed for the last 5 or so years.

Sorry commenting on an old thread but I wondered if anything significantly changed for you in the feel or characteristics of the engine after removing the 02 sensor. Mines a 2013 so potentially I could switch it off but unless there is a noticeably change for the better I probably wont, but could be convinced 😄

I removed mine when I removed the cat so potentially the changes I felt at the time could have been the cat removal. Any which way my Tiger is one punchy so and so. Even more so when I uploaded the Arrow tune.
