New owner in NZ

Hi guys, new owner from Auckland NZ.
I work for a Suzuki dealership, and missed out on a vanvan the 1 year they brought some into NZ, and managed to track down a brand new one hiding at a dealership out in the countryside

Plan was to make it into a cool city bike, mainly used for commuting, something that stands out without going too far from what they are all about.

Current mods:
Low exhaust system, plus modified for o2 sensor
Wirus win tail tidy, lucas tail light with chopped subframe
Suzuki OEM under guard
Suzuki OEM tu250 brown grips
42T rear sprocket w/gold chain
Black retro styled MX bars
Fork gaitors
Short stem mirrors
Denali mini soundbomb horn
Black indicators

Bits on the way:
Suzuki OEM brown seat
Black front fender to chop up
JDM rear grab rail (cleaner looking than the US spec)

Was going to do the fat front wheel mod, priced it up, was quite cheap at dealer seafreight prices, but that was whilst i assumed it was a case of simply assembling a rear rim and spokes to a front hub, but alas no. In the too hard basket for now.

Hi Morcs!

Looks good! I like the look of that handlebar. How'd you do the O2 delete? I kinda want to do that myself, but I'm unsure of what it involves.

With the o2 i initially ran it without it, just unplugged. No ill affects, ran well but obviously the FI light would stay on. Next I tried an o2 sensor eliminator, one for a Busa I think as the plugs are the same, light still came on. Ran it on our diagnostics and there are 2 codes for o2 fault, one is the sensor not being there (the eliminator took care of this one) and the other code was the heater side of things, this is just about impossible to bypass as it expects a certain reading at a certain running temp.

In the end got an exhaust shop to drill a hole, weld a 12mm nut onto the pipe so i could simply screw in the stock o2 sensor.

Wow someone from a Suzuki dealership! You're going to be helpful around here!
I think I have the same low mount exhaust as you and the FI light is on, sounds like it might be easiest to just put the stock exhaust on to pass inspection.

Just get an exhaust shop to weld a nut on and run the o2! Its easy and cheap!

route the o2 sensor so you can tell where it can reach to, and mark the pipe with a marker. Take the pipe with sensor to an exhaust shop and theyll know what to do

Your local bike shop may even be able to do it for you depending on their staff and equipment.

Hey Morcs, is this the O2 sensor? Looks like the PO had it added in. FI light is still on though, do you have to manually clear it?

Yep thats it, and yes o2 sensor is a persistent code that will have to be cleared using the SDS system at a dealership.
You could try disconnecting the battery overnight, may or may not clear it.
