That is not stock, I assume it was modified to run dual wideband oxygen sensors, then replaced with bolts when it was done

Probably done at a dyno shop, those would probably stick the sensor far too deep and block too much flow to be used with o2 sensors. So I'm guessing external exhaust gas sniffer used with a dyno.

Very possible. The PO mentioned that the bike had been dyno'd.

Not a very good dyno since the bike was backfiring and popping when I got it and the Jardine can was very loose since they did not install the hanger correctly.

Half a tube of copper RTV, re-installing the hanger and new maps from Buelltooth and now it purrs like a dragon.
