    Pullling the headers for the first time and may be obvious but I want to make sure it's standard and not reverse threaded. Maybe becuase it's new but seemed pretty tight trying to loosen.

    What size is it? 20 or 21mm. Have an adjustable but if I can get something that fits better...

    Thanks all

    Yup they are regular threads. On the rear its a real pain to get to. I removed the right passenger peg to give me a little more room. If I remember right I used a7\8 wrench on mine. If your installing an o2 eliminater kit your going to like it

    Thanks but access isn't an issue. I pulled all including the frame off the rear. Gotta learn how this thing goes together. Seems more straight forward than the GSA I was on. I have it totally off except for the sensor.

    What is an O2 eliminator and why do it?

    Eliminating the o2 sensors gets rid of the jerky throttle that you find around 20-30 mph. Its much smmooother
