update on iron 883 problem

original post:

Problem.. iron 883

Check the codes and it turns out to be P0152 Rear Oxygen Sensor High

I called the dealership and talked to him about what that meant and he said I could get the stage 1 download but that it might not fix it and that I should probably get a full dyno tune for like $900....

I'm still new and I really don't know what to do. I was told slip ons wouldn't cause this problem and I also get the feeling the dealership just wants all of my money..

I'm about ready to just put the old pipes back on

Anyone have any ideas?

I'd check the wiring first since you changed the pipes. Then clear and start it again and see if the code resets. This code will turn the chk engine light on. It means the sensor has spent more time than allowed at high voltage.

1- Defective Oxygen Sensor
2- Faulty Oxygen Sensor wiring or connections
3- Shorted Oxygen Sensor Heater element(s)

I checked the o2 sensors. Appear to be working fine. No wires were tweaked or anything plus i just changed the slip ons, i never touched the head pipes.

I haven't even driven it since the lights came on. I didn't want to hurt the bike.

Ridding it won't hurt anything. Reset the trouble code, and try again.

Could just be a bad sensor.
You could get XIED's, cheap, and will cool it down so even if it doesn't fix the problem they are a good idea.

What method did you use to check the sensors?
