Catless header and FP3 on 2013FLTRU

So, I've read everything I can find about de-catting a TC motor and am getting ready to finally do my '13 ultra (Road Glide of course)! Thing is I haven't seen, heard, or read anything about what to do about the O2 sensors! I know they are upstream of the Cat, but am wondering if most folks just leave them in the head pipe or cap them off. If they are left in the pipe, will this cause an error code?

I have the FP3 and am planning on just running an autotune session after the swap, but still I'm concerned about the error codes showing up. Any thoughts from those who have done this swap before

I have capped them off. And I have left them in, and unplugged them in the side cover. Either is good assuming you don't need them.

"I have capped them off. And I have left them in, and unplugged them in the side cover. Either is good assuming you don't need them."

Doesn't answer the error code question

"Mine is stock with FP3 and gutted catless header .. They sent me a map to put in , will send the info to you later .."

Was planning on this if necessary, but still doesn't answer the error code question!
Does/did your bike throw any sensor related codes when you originally did the mod?
