Can the cat converter section be removed from the stock header pipe? I kind of like the stock muffler, but I want to get rid of the converter and the PAV stuff. Has anybody done this removal successfully?Thanks,Fred
I posted some photos on my blog at http://wil6831.multiply.com/journal/item/579/REB_Exhaust_System If you can't get on there OK let me know and I will resize the pics and post them here.The cat converter is pretty easy to cut out, just cut or grind the welds off and it should pull right out. When I got a new header and muffler I removed the converter from the stock system and also chopped a one foot section out of the stock muffler. All just for the heck of it, wanted to see how it sounded. It isn't a free flowing as the shorty muffler but it frees thing up a bit. As you can see the stock muffler is quite the maze of plumbing.Quote from: fredgold52 on January 11, 2008, 01:25:22 pmCan the cat converter section be removed from the stock header pipe?

Fred, I will say that the stock muffler, after 2000 miles, was starting to sound less like my lawn mower and more like a motorcycle. You got a new bike didn't you? Here is some unsolicited advice for you.........don't change anything until you get a couple thousand miles on it. If it is like mine you will have enough to do tweaking what you have without adding new stuff. In hindsite I would also advise pulling the throttle assembly off and taking a look at how that works and decide if you need to do some filing on the part the cable fits into. It should rotate freely and if it doesn't you will be breaking the cable in short order. Most important of all when the roads are clear ride, ride, ride. By the time Spring rolls around you should have it run in and can start having some real fun.-Leonard
