Default De-catting my Midnight Star

Well I've tolerated this 6kg lump of steel and catalytic converter for long enough. Today I removed it and tried a straight through pipe for a laugh and to check 2 into 1 outlet dimension.
Here's the outlet complete with lambda sensor;

and, for a laugh, a video of the 48mm pipe without silencing. Double click on piccy.

Need to order 2" perforated tube, silencing material, outer tube and inlet cone, then I can get some more work done.

When i did my BM i disconnected the lambda sensor and it ran like a sack of shit, then i replaced the sensor it ran better but not right, in the end i fitted a wideband universal one from ebay it cost about 16 the bike now runs fine

One like this count the wires and check colours and you should be good cant say for sure if it will work on yours but it worked for mine

I also noticed a sensor tricker may be of use if there's room

It may be fine with just unpluging the lambda sensor try this first then see how it goes from there
