CAT or NO CAT

Hey guys...planning to get a slipon exhaust for my zx10r but wondering whether to get rid of the cat converter or not.....will removing it make the bike sound more sporty or just slipon with cat converter make the same sound?

Mine doesn't make much noise, but he does get quite upset when his Bombay Sapphire is empty

Swapping out the muffler alone will hardly change the sound volume at all. The catalytic converter muffles most of the noise.

I've witnessed first hand all combos.

Quiet: stock muffler w/cat
Quiet: aftermarket muffler w/cat
Loud: stock muffler w/link pipe
Loud: aftermarket muffler w/link pipe

Not sure: any exhaust with an actual feline cat stuffed in it.

2013 ABS, Bridgestone T30 Evo, Woolich, Danmoto shorty & link, Rifleman's 1/5th turn, K&N, GP shift, Gen5 shock/links/dogbone, JT (-1/+0), EK, Shorai, EBC HH, AllBallz roller steering, heated grips, shorty levers, MotoDynamic signals & relay, plasti-dipped and vinyl wrapped (all green to black), Bestem carbon, PUIG Pro sliders, solo cowl, modded sprocket cover, TST fender elim. w/LEDs. 45,000km+ and going strong!

Going catless means less weight and better sound thats a win imo.
