    Faulty O2 sensor/ PGM F1 Light Fault

    Has anybody out there experienced a fault with their O2 sensor? I replaced my exhaust for a race can with the lambda sensor fitting (JAC exhaust, very good actually). Following fitting the PGMF1 light on the dash was lit. I checked the lambda sensor was tight, which it was so I took it to my Honda dealer. They put in on the diagnostics machine and say I have a faulty O2 sensor. £120 to replace the part!! I can't see how I damaged the thing apart from perhaps the wires twirling round when I was undoing and re-tightening the O2 sensor.

    Has anybody else experienced this issue? Should I play the warranty card?

    The light came on for about a minute when i fitted my akra with the link pipe. After stopping it and restarting it came on for a few seconds and went off and never came back on.
    I know with cars (mainly vauxhall experiance) that if the car has had a modded exhaust fitted and the light wont stay off with just cancelling the fault code they will tell you to pay for a new one or bugger off and sue them.To my knowledge no one has take the manufactor to court.
    On a car, £120 is the going rate for a lambda sensor.

    If you have a Power Commander (far more expensive option) I gather you can add the O2 sensor eliminator to remove the effect and turn the light off. In fact, it may even work without a PC, I'm not sure

    Not exactly a solution, but the light will be off...

    I have the Dynojet o2 eliminator but not the PC, bike runs much better without the sensor plugged in.

    Is your bike standard?

    It has the IXIL on now but I ran the standard exhaust for 3.5k miles without the sensor with the same benefits. Still got the CAT in place, my guess is that if you removed the CAT and fit a link pipe you would have to get a PC. I'm pretty sure that Akra recommend a PC, best bet would be to check directly with the manufaturer (not the dealer/vendor).
