    I think 1 of the cons would be the vibration transfer to the head flanges and exhaust studs. My guess is that you will be chasing exhaust leaks at that spot, but that is just thinking out loud.

    Got the bungs welded on and getting ready to mount the Longshots on but it will have to wait until I get back from vacation in 2 weeks. I have been thinking about a way to rubber mount the exhaust to the rear support to help reduce vibration to the frame. Has anyone else done this? if so, how you did it? Pros/cons with this approach?

    Thanks davej.

    Thought about that, actually bought some nuts. I decided to make some bungs out of some steel rod I had laying around so that the tip of the 02 sensors were extended inside the new pipes at the same distance as in the old stock pipes. The nuts weren't thick enough for this.

    The front is in the right position for the connectors to plug in comfortably and not very visible on the pipe.

    The rear would have had to be located on the top of the header pipe to plug in comfortably. I didn't like the look so I drilled the pipe near the bottom at a downward angle towards the bottom of the engine so it didn't stick out like a sore thumb. I already extended the wires on the rear sensor 4" to be able to reach the plug. This way, the sensor is not visible unless you intentionally look for it.

    Curious though, should I use some type of sealant on the threads when I put the sensors in for good?

    Thanks damateerman.

    Wound up making my own from some 5/8" steel rod, them drilled and tapped them. Now just gotta get them welded on the pipes.

    Go to rockauto.com , they have 02 sensor parts. You may have to know in advance what size you need but they have weld in parts.

    Sorry Grubsie And DaveJ.
    I completely missed the part that said the bike is an '09. So Grubsie needs to hook up his O2 sensor... gotcha.

    Someone else may post an answer sooner though.

    I need to know that as well. My Bassani head pipes did not come with the Bungholio's and I want to add an AFR meter.

    started a topic 02 sensor bungs

    02 sensor bungs

    I have a set of V&H Longshots from a 1600 that I want to put on my 2009 1700. Looking for info on what size 02 sensor bungs (mm size) I need and where to get them so I can weld them onto the V&H pipes.
