I have been a ZX-10R owner in California for 14 years....I have had noise tickets and just reinstalled the converter and get it signed off...
Now, my Gen 4.....I removed the cat and put in an Akra straight pipe and the bike ran like shit. I had a custom map and everything...it was too loud, and no low end and mid range power....I reinstalled the cat and put on the shorty Akra can....custom map and I'm at 185 RWHP....tons of low end and mid range...on the track or on the street, it is quiet enough and nobody can really beat me...you don't need to remove the cat and put on a pipe...it will be too loud, bring the cops for tickets and run like shit. Trust me I know.
I have owned Gen 1, Gen 3 and Gen 4.
