Well, let's just say I know someone who did it, well he couldn't do it by himself. There are 4 cat's they are metal foil ones welded in. The L/S is not real accesable. The way it was done was by cutting the collectors and peeling back the lids then removing the foil cat's and rewelding. The guy who did this work is an expert chassis fabricator who was even on national tv, and would never want to do it again. I helped reinstall the header, yes it is louder, but my bike will spank the crap out of that one, it just runs way better, flies out pc3 slip on, makes a noticable difference in eveyday riding. It brings the torque out in the beast within that no converter removal could ever accomplish.

So does it run any better? I think for him it does since he could not sleep with them in there, in my opinion it's all psycological. The good thing he did do was heat wrap the enire header which knocked the heat back a good bit, as well as having the cat's out.

no, it seems like too much work. i did not buy the bike to make it my hot rod. if it was easy i would. i do have the friends who could pull it off but if i take the exhaust off it will not go back on.
