YES YES YES it works! Takes the most of the snatchiness out when on steady throttle!

If someone is really desperate I can make some and mail them to you.
PM me.


For how much? :D

The parts with the proper plugs from easternbeaver cost me about 20-25 US$ depending how many I buy. Postage probably round the 5-10 US$ I guess. To hungary it might be cheaper to get them from UK or so?

Why have unnecessary, "dead" wires running around?

I have set of these plugs in the post to me, a few questions?

My 08 SD is completely standard incuding stock exhaust at present, will this still work?

The FI in the absence of the o2 sensors working reverts to the ktm map which works well? If this is so, the ktm map should work best with the bike as standard as surely this is what the ktm map was designed to work with? I am not knocking all the other mods (sas removal etc). it is just a theory.

Excuse my ignorance i am learning as i go.

I will provde feedback once i fit them to my completely standard SD.

It does work but on my bike (08) it was running rich. On my bike the original map is way rich and putting the plugs in makes it worse in low rpm low throttle openings. It did cured the snatchiness...

So I just bought the 02 elim from ktmtiwns. I also bought the connectors from the beaver website. I was going to use the extra connectors to cap off the 02 sensor plug for clean factor look. what can I put in the end to make it water tight. Some silicon maybe?

Dielectric grease is the best.
Remove the sensors and put a plug in it is my preferred long time option.

I know that this is about the DIY version of this mod (and an excellent thread it is!). I add this only as it seems some of you have been unable to obtain the off-the-shelf version. I realise not everyone is equipped or wants to take on this on.

MorePower Racing has the O2 Sensor Eliminator (DynoJet P/N 76423016). They claim to do international orders as well (costs unknown). Hard to find better deals on new PCIIIs than from these folks BTW:

I couldn't make 'em for that little - even with an electronics manufacturing department at my disposal.

I have the exact setup and the bike is rideable now. Are you going to install a PC3? Is your bike running a bit rich still? I believe mine is since the back of my jacket stinks after a long ride.

Can anyone display an A/F map for the sduke, from either tuneboy or the PC thing?

I used to use tuneboy on my triumph. You could define where the bike is closed loop by adjusting the map.

It would be sweet if someone has a fuel map to show as well.

Hi,

The dyno chart? no.

In the tuneboy software you can view and edit the actual ecu map values;
a/f targets, the fuel map, advance ,etc.

I will agree the elim's help throttle control, but my recent trip i got the dreaded 'low fuel' light at 100 miles when i usually see it at 135???

I must refill and retest as maybe i didnt completely fill up last time?

Anybody else have this problem...

thx

LMAO - my sentiments exactly (with DynoJet version of the plugs). Stock exhaust, air filter, sas still in place. Did a TB synch at the same time. Almost can't believe the degree of improvement.

Will monitor the mileage thing ... can't imagine it being any worse than it was.

Related aside, can anyone point me to a thread that states what the correct idle speed should be? The semi-worthless service manual states it should be 1400 RPM ...

thnx for this DIY thread!!

Just finished the two connectors and hope it works :D
I've used 330 Ohm 5 watt and 1m Ohm 1 watt resistors.

I'm thinking of a extra shrink on top the connector, so humidity doesn't have a chance :roll:
