decat crosstourer

Theres a couple of guys on the vfr1200 f forum who have decatted there exhausts. I was wondering if anyone on here has done this with the ct. One guy cut the box holding the cat out and replaced it with a mini 2 into 1 pipe and the other guy opened up the box and removed the cat, then welded it back up.
The rational would be that the bike would rev even better, sound louder :005: and possibly a bit more performance.
I bought remus decat pipes on mg 1200gs and it made a big difference

More noise definitely but possibly worse performance with increased fuel consumption.

Not saying it won't work just don't think I'm going to be the first to try it  :164:

My experience of decatting my old R1200GS and also my old R1150GS is smoother running, better economy and more low down power. The cats are quite restrictive. I wonder if anyone makes header pipes for the CT without a cat?

Interesting website. Eye watering prices too.

 18-20 hp with a pc according to their bumph. Yum yum! :082:

Would I be right in saying DCT owners cannot use a Power Commander? Cannot set up on a dyno?

Why not? Put the bike in manual mode and it's the same as any manual bike. 18-20hp is pie in the sky from a normally aspirated engine of this size without major engine modification work. I'm happy as it is and i came from a ZZR1400.
