Default Quick exhaust help.

I've installed my Remus full exhaust but I have yet to fire her up. The O2 sensors are still hanging and the servo motors have both been rotated slightly ( my mistake, didn't know I was supposed to absolutely not touch them). With the O2 sensors still attached but not plugged into anything and the servo motors probably rotated slightly can I risk starting her up and driving her to the shop to finish the install.

I was going to have a shop get the power commander put on and properly tuned as well as remove the servos and O2 sensors, I just don't want to hurt the bike by riding it in its current state. Am I only expecting a check engine light while I ride it in or is there something more I'm doing to her buy firing up the motor and riding to the shop? The ride to the shop is about 10 miles

The full Remus still has the exhaust flap valves in it? If not then it doesn't matter if the cables are disconnected. Just plug in the O2 sensors and let the shop disconnect them and remove them. Make sure they are connected to the proper sides.

Pretty certain (99%) that disconnected O2 sensors won't throw a fault in the instrument panel. Otherwise all the guys that have PCVs on their bikes would be riding around with an engine light on.

This is correct... no code on the dash.

Default Question on this topic

Is it OK to remove the exhaust Servo when installing a full exhaust. SInce it serves no purpose now...how much would it weigh..? Will this throw a code on the dash(removal of the Servo)??

Yes , you can remove it and it won't hurt anything. It will store a fault code but won't cause a light in the dash.
