950 Exhaust trivia question

My 06 950 has fittings near the cylinder head on both exhaust pipes. They look kinda like where 02 sensors would go.. DO all 950's have these?

THanks
Dave

I think so. Useful to check exhaust gas mix.

The parts book says the plugs are 10mm.

Are sensors that small available?

I figured they were for connecting a gas analyser, or thermocouples.. But I haven't seen how big the 02 sensors are on a 990.. Thought maybe the 06 had a 990 exhaust just due to overlap in production.

Was considering addng a EGT thermocouple to each...

The parts book doesn't say, but the only size I have found on the net for any application is 18mm.



Edit: I just found a reference to a 12mm sensor, but of course that's still not 10.

Used for analysing gas mixture with a small probe. At least this is what a mech mate told me when I had my 03 Ducati.

Also good for dewatering before you remove the header pipes

Makes sense,, would make more sense if KTM provided a analyzer to their dealers with orange status,, (Do they?) I know back when I had a DR350, I had the tuneup and service done at a local Yamaha shop, the tech used the EGA they get for the Ventures to tune the DR.. Best it EVER ran hands down..

Cheers

Dave
