Allows for a more accurate A/F ratio reading from the o2 sensor.
Also gets rid of that popping noise from your exhaust you get when you decelerate as air is not recirculating the system.

Has more of a use tuning with a wideband o2 sensor.

Floyd- I definitely will. Debating on whether to buy fuel controller or midpipe, since my budget will be restricted for a little bit.

Jimrad- Yes, I plan to get it street legal as well, though it will take some time.
get a midpipe and send your ecu off to get reflashed for 150

I found an 05 header on r6-forum which is on the way and I'm installing the Bazzaz zFI and AFM for autotune.

Going to equal about the same price, but I'll have a personal tune for this bike.

BTW if you ever find those 05 headers around, there's serious money to be off those on the r6-forums.

***UPDATE 2/13***

So I picked up Byrdman's Bazzaz zFI and AFM modules this past week and got to work on Saturday. Its more complicated than a PC3 for sure, but if you have any sort of electrical skills, I thought it was a breeze. The only part that was tricky is the TPS sensor taps. I didn't install the AFM yet since my 05 header is still on the way and I've yet to buy a new wideband sensor.

Here's the harness starting to be connected up.
attachmentphp?attachmentid53295&ampstc1&ampd1329158659

Mount the zFI in the tray behind the ECU.
attachmentphp?attachmentid53296&ampstc1&ampd1329158659

TPS sensor is right alongside the frame, this was how I got it out.
A child probably could not have gotten their finger under that clip.
attachmentphp?attachmentid53297&ampstc1&ampd1329158659

Now time for a little tuning. The map it had on there was dumping like 30% across some RPM/TP cells. It was sprinkling fuel out the exhaust . Loaded a base map just to get it running okay, and then smoothed it out until I can get the header on and start really getting it dialed in.

why are you having to buy a new sensor? is the old one already garbage? they should work for a LONG time on regular pump gas. once you're tuned, you remove the sensor.

the reason i ask, is you don't NEED a new sensor portion unless the one you bought is bad, or missing.

Didn't have one with the kit. I know where the one is, but I heard the old was IN the bike for 3 years and no good.

Yes, fuel controllers just piggyback your regular ECU, but both are used for "tuning" air/fuel mixture. That's my short answer.

***UPDATE 2/20***

Sorry fellas, should be fixed now. Attachments weren't working.
__________________________________________________ _

So I got my big projects done Saturday finally, and starting to feel alot closer to the end.

First project was replacing the fork seals. This is NOT something to attempt if you are just an simple nuts and bolts kinda mechanic. There's alot of stuff that must be installed in a certain order, and like with any seal, they must be installed correctly and with some finesse. All in all, I will be doing them from here on out, but I've decided I'm not going to do others, not even for $$$. If installing the Bazzaz was a 5/10 job, this was a 7/10 for my first try. I'm sure it will get easier with practice.

Here's some of my parts table:
attachmentphp?attachmentid53463&ampd1329768146

Here are the forks finishing draining all the old oil out:
attachmentphp?attachmentid53464&ampd1329768168


Second project was getting rid of the stock exhaust system so that it would stop burning the paint off the belly pan. Picked up an 05 header off the r6 boards and went away. The old system weighed like 13lbs!!! I plugged in the Jardine GP1 for fun and cranked it. It is LOUD, like too loud in my opinion. Will have to find another slip on later for sure.

Exhaust comparison:
attachmentphp?attachmentid53465&ampd1329768184

And another reason you should ALWAYS go through a used bike.
Nice o2 sensor wiring job right here. The wires weren't even crimped in the connectors. No wonder it wasn't running smoothly....
attachmentphp?attachmentid53466&ampd1329768259


So what's left:
Chain/Sprockets
Install new Q2s
Get suspension reset
Exhaust reducer for slip on
Put all the body work back on
more I'm sure....
