is it actually advisable to have your catalyzer removed, cause i was told that it actually contributes to heating up your bike and the surrounding area where it is...

and this leads to more fuel burned...? is it true...? my bike is brand new, barely 3 weeks old. but fuel consumption is lower than on paper...

my mechanic told me i could remove it... better fuel consumption after that...

the catalyzer is environment friendly but then again these new engine is perfect and good fuel and proper combustion has already lowered toxic emission so we dont have to really worry bout emission right...? plus it'll sound louder...

advise...

He would have to cut it out , then have a custom Y pipe put in it's place -- if he runs with duals cans .

Thinking of doing this myself, as a full system is just to expensive, im goin to my local garage an they are going to hopefully remove the cat n fabricate a custom y pipe to fit straight onto my M4's when they arrive! I wonder will i need some sort of fuel controller or PCV tho?

depending on the laws in your state and the thier willingness to follow them, you may have to remove the cat yourself then have them fab the Y pipe .

spoke to my mechanic, that is exactly what he recommended... you dont need a fuel controller her says, cause its not a real full system... but then again the cat is there to serve its purpose therefore it will upset the system somehow. so some suggest that we have to install some sort of electronic controller...

any truth to this big boys...?
