best place for a bung??
« on: July 10, 2013, 01:09:39 am »
Installing a  zx14 header pipe on my C14 and woud like to put a bung on for later use before I install and was wondering where is the best location to put it, I'm thinking the collector and if that is right, left side, right side, front part, rear part?   for those that have done this any help would be appreciated.  Also what should I use/do to keep the header pipe nuts from coming loose, I've heard some have come loose in the past.


Thanks
John

I don't have input for you here but, I am interested in doing the same for my bike. Was it hard to fit the ZX14 header pipe and were any other mods needed? Are going to go dual or single side exhaust? I would love to do dual VH CS-1 or Two Brothers. Since there is no mount for the left side canister, anyone have any pics of what they did?

I did that myself using the ZX14 header. I chose the the right side of the collector (round area) on of the bike for the bung. 

I run a Power Commander V with the Auto Tune module on my C-14 with a full ZX14 exhaust system.   DynoJet recommends the O2 sensor be installed angled downwards to prolong the life of the sensor.  It is a tight fit to keep the nose pointing down and still allow tail of the sensor enough clearance with the oil pan to remove it from the header. 

I have took a picture for you but I can't figure out why I can't attach it to this post.  I think the file is too large.  I'll send it through email if you'd like a high resolution picture.  With the proper tune you will enjoy the additional power/performance, stock sound and eye appeal at a very low cost. 

Good luck with your installation.  PM if you have any questions.

G-MAZZ  pics always work and email is fine too. Can you tell me what size nut to use and did you do anything about the stock header nuts? I want to keep the stock sound also,I will eventually go with zx14 throttle bodies and will need the auto tune then. Any info is greatly appreciated.

Go to the link below and enlarge the first picture this is where Area P mounts there's and where the PCV Autotune should be on any exhaust.
Make sure it is on the inside part of the pipe and at an angle so that it doesn't get any moisture.
If you mount it say toward the underside of the pipe it will possibly corrode from the collecting moisture in the exhaust.

By the way in that picture the pipe is twisted so you can see the bung on the bike you cannot see it looking at it from the side.

You can angle that sensor to the front or back, it does not have to stick straight out.

Should also come with the O2 sensor in the wide band kit.
