I've been reading that people are removing the O2 sensor on their i.e., but I'm not sure where this is. Can anyone point me in the right direction?

Also, what is the sensor coming out of the top horizontal valve cover?

Many thanks!

I'm not sure where the O2 sensor is, but I'll guess that it's in the 'udder'.
Hopefully someone that actually has an O2 sensor equipped bike will chime in.

The sensor in the top of the horizontal valve cover is an engine temperature sensor, the ECU uses it to decide how to tweak the mixture.

Sorry, Should have mentioned that I have an '02 620 i.e. dark.

So, can someone tell me where my O2 sensor is? Also, what would happen if I removed the temp sensor coming out of the horizontal valve cover?

Well, that makes a difference.

1. You do not have an oxygen sensor.
2. If you remove that temp sensor, your bike will run crappy once it warms up, and will get poor gas mileage.
