Headers & o2 sensor

Hi guys, thinking of getting some headers for my bike (never had any before) and wanted to know if any come with the O2 sensor attachment built in?

You need to check with the company that makes the header you're thinking about getting. If you get a header only and retain the stock cat/muffler you're simply throwing money down the drain for nothing.

Look into getting a whole system, 9 times out of 10 a full system will incorporate the 02 sensor. A dyno tuner/ECU flash will dictate the need for an 02 sensor or not.

Simply bolting up a full system will drastically decrease your performance as well until the bike is tuned for the new system.

Most likely you'll need to get a bung welded.

And if you do get one welded make sure it's an 18mm and not a 12mm
