Gentlemen, your attention please.  I want to sincerely thank all of my friends that supported and encouraged me to continue this project. 
Also want to thank the naysayers because the best way to get me to do something is to tell me I can’t. 

This is the end of chapter one. 
So with that said I want you all to have a look at the first..

Congrats on all the work coming to fruition. Do you have a realtime O2 sensor in the exhaust to measure the fuel air ratio?

Rich, I concur with your assessment of location of the sensor. I located the O2 sensor in the collector of the catless zx header I installed on my '08. I think the stock headers have a boss at about the curve of the downtube.

correct...
and you installed a single O2 sensor there, in the collector, which works.
IIRC, the Magna has a dual pipe, dual exhaust also.... just mentioning.

The O2 sensor seems to be behaving where it is.  It is a narrow band sensor and switches quickly from rich to lean .

I have a new wide band sensor on order along with controller for it.   When the new one arrives I will mount it closer to the collector to make sure there is no oxygen  "leaking" into the exhaust after combustion.

So frustrating.  Still waiting on my broadband sensor and controller.  However have made some progress but still a long way to go.

Gpineau, I followed you on the mechanical, but your way above my capabilities' on the electrical portion of this project.
I am enjoying (and learning some) as I watch you work your way thru the process.
Have a few questions.

1) You said you only have 1 pulse and your temporarily telling the system it is only a 2 cylinder.
     A C-10 has 2 pick up coils so I assume you could use both?
      Does this bike only have 1 pick up coil?

2) At the start of this project you planned a low budget version of what others have built.
    With all the special parts you have been ordering, isn't your budget higher than expected?
      NOTE: I realize the development process costs extra as you determine correct components.
                So, I'm not referring to the development costs as you work out details..
                I'm referring to the costs for the special boards etc that you finalized on.

3) My guess is; this has become more complicated that you originally though it would be?

4) Have you cranked it anymore?

Ride safe, Ted

Got my wide band sensor and controller. Tuning will proceed faster now.
