Lose your ZX-10R cat
You can now lose the catalytic converter from your 2006 Kawasaki ZX-10R, reducing weight by almost one kilogram and gaining around nine horsepower.

The catalyst removing pipe/collector box is made by Motad, and fits easily to replace the original catalyser with a stainless steel unit complete with lamda sensor fittings. You can still fit original and aftermarket exhausts.
It has currently been tested with standard jetting, but when the appropriate Power Commander is available a specific map will be developed. The only downside is that removing the cat may affect emissions to meet road legal standards.

The Motad Catalyst Removing Pipe/Collector Box for the Kawasaki ZX10 costs £99.99. Contact: 01922-714700."

Yep, very easy just time consuming.

remove pipe at end of muffler, take a long chisel or punch or screwdriver and use a hammer and start in the middle and work your way outwards and punch thru it. Put the end of the can on a third cardboard or some rags to not mess the end of it up. When done shake out all of the crap.

Then look inside, there is a plate with a "X" or a "+" on it, use a hole saw or whatever you can get down there and punch it out as well. Pretty much makes it a straight thru design like a slip on.

So why does the Motad have O2 sensor bungs? I just gutted my 2006 CAT and there are no O2 sensors. Are they just a UK thing?

Was it hard to gut the CAT and did it make it any louder? Could you nottice any difference in HP?

Last Thursday my brother's 06 did 9.61 at 144 mph, with a 1.6 60ft. His mods; gutted cat, 16t, block off plates, TRE, extended. That was first pass ever on the bike. Amazing numbers for those mods. So maybe not having the cat had something to do with it.

do UK bikes have a Cat as well as an 02 sensor? Usually either one or the other and the sensor would not be where the CAT is anyway. The bung would be for mapping the bike etc more than the 02 sensor I would imagine. But either way, cheaper to bash the cat out than but another pipe. Up to you.
