you mean leanGutted my '07 and had planned on getting the A&R baffles put in. Instead I ordered two Titanium pipes without holes and did the CAT at the same time... hehe if I get busted by the cops I can always add holes right? Now it's super loud and spits out a tiny flame (visible at night) so my friends tell me. Throttle feels more crisp..and sound is very loud...haven't heard a single bike louder than mine on the road anyway... oh yeah runs rich compared to stock setup. I included 1 pic of my pipe.. forgot to take pics of the gutted cat.. I drilled it out and sand blasted out the bits.. also power coated the exhaust all black too.
Haven't run any tests yet.. well since I didn't run any before mods I won't be able to tell you the difference.. It feels better and was fun to do..plus it was almost free.. Ti pipes cost me around 100 bucks.. I used all the stock pieces unlike how the A&R site shows how to do it. The rear part that rivots is sealed properly. I wanted stock looks and and I felt the Kawa stock pipes were quite nice.. all Ti except for super heavy CAT piece. - That's the only thing I would consider replacing for my skill level anyway. But the O2 sensors would be too much hassle..so ended up with gutting instead.
I posted pics on how to do it a while ago when I did my 06 cat. Here......
I dont think it'll be an issue for you, if you remove it before your track day. I think the bike will be more responsive for you with the cat out. As far as a map...if you run a full system map, that takes in to account you do not have a cat. You should be able to get that from PCs site.Thanks....being that I do not have anything to RE-Map the fuel curve on this thing....should I wait till I can change it??? Got a track day next weekend....don't wanna fugg anything up:badteeth:
I used A&R baffles, which took less than one hour start to finish. Lots of posts made on this. Search should turn up some good info.
Remap was a must. Dyno'e 167.12.
I did my packing a little different than directions showed. I wanted quality of sound. Not just some loud ass raspy crap sound.
Also have BMC Race airfilter.
Great mods for the time and money involved. Gutting the cans is simple. I also used a dremol tool to make the cuts in the factory baffles. Then a screwdriver popped'em right out.QUOTE]
Sounds like a peice of cake man.......:thumbsup: ....I have a set of Akra Bolt Ons on it with a K&N Filter in it......I probably should have informed you guys of this earlier.....think i would be fine with gutting the cat with out re-map before the track?? I am sure the bike will be fine, I just don't want it running rich enough to the point of poor performance. Thanks:badteeth:
