Experienced Bazzaz users Z-AFM enter here!

well my build is coming along nicely, last year i did the , bazzaz Z-FI and Z-AFM but i was running stock headers with Akra slip on.
the readings i was getting from the bazzaz were all over the place, and couldnt build a map, i blamed the servo messing with the backpressure and exhaust flow and the sensor being just before the cat it slows down and will give even more of a inaccurate reading.

so... ive got Arrow headers on the way, should be here any day, servo eliminator 2.0 thanks to TST! and now i think ill get a proper reading, but ive still never built a map that was even close to working.
at the end of the day, if i cant get it to create a map i have a massive store credit at my race shop so ill let them dyno it BUT i want to learn how to do this properly.

so full exhaust, new gearing, servo elim, z-afm z-fi, z-bomb k&n, block off plates, should give me accurate readings now right?
i still have to do all the exhaust install and change out the gaskets but i should be tuning in about 2 weeks.

any tips appreciated, im currently running just the bazzaz slip on map, and honestly, it was running fairly good, but theres room for improvement.
FYI - its a street bike.

Looks like you got everything you need.

It's not easy tuning on the road; but it's not impossible.

I built my map on the road before taking it to the track. See the progression in my build thread.

Ask any question if you have any.

Nice build!

im wiring in my Z-AFM right now and i cant figure out where to route the wire.
i have the servo removed but the bazzaz wideband wiring harness is short on the end with the sensor so i cant find anywhere to mount the connector.
im thinking of splicing in a extension so i can run the plug up under the seat where the servo motor would sit and have the wire run where the servo cables were.

i have arrow headers on now and the O2 sensor bung is on the opposite side of the pipe than i had it last year (which everything fit nicely)

any info on how you ran the wire would be appreciated.

I ran mine over the clutch cover and wrapped the excess around the clutch cable cover with the connector right around the coolant bottle, I'll send a pic tomorrow.

all good i got it sorted out thanks.
i made a "L" bracket and put it throught one of the fairing bolts right next to the coolant bottle, ziptied it all up and its actually really secure, no wires slapping around then routed the harness from the Z-AFM down where the servo cables were.
wish i took a pic but i didnt.

You understand taking the fairings off is a pita, but regardless: the barbed end of the connector goes into the bracket (from the underside) that holds the bottom of the coolant bottle.

im still having issues with my Z-AFM, im going back and forth with Bazzaz again. im fairly sure that the shop i bought it from sent me a defective unit. i contacted them and they basically said im SOL and have to deal with Bazzaz directly.
i can already tell you Bazzaz isnt going to replace the sensor (or the module if that turns out to be the problem), their warranty is void if a canadian buys the product from a US distributor.. which is bs..

so im trying to source a new sensor locally, ive found out that Bosch makes the wideband sensor for bazzaz and ive got their part number as 17205.
really happy that ive got to buy a $100-$200 sensor for a kit i bought then hope that the issue was just the sensor and not the z-afm module...

How did you conclude the sensor was to blame?

about a year with tech support through bazzaz, talking to local race tuners, verifying i have everything set up right.

the shop i bought it from is working with me and bazzaz to get this unit replaced, i may be in luck.
