Good point. Moved the thread.

I think there are some folk here who have removed theirs on the 9'er, maybe they will chime in if they are around.

Personally I went from a 919 stock exhaust with a CAT to a 900RR without one and my A/F Ratio stayed OK.

Modern catalytic converters do not block nearly as much flow as many seem to think, meaning if you are looking for a cheap performance improvement you are sure to be disappointed. The fact that the most of the time there is no A/F adjustment necessary should tell you that nothing much changes -- including the power.

If it has already been done, it is safe to assume it is possible to do it.
On the other hand, if it has not been done never assume it is impossible to do it.

The only time to remove the cat is when you are replacing the exhaust system completely.

Removing it in and of itself serves no real purpose in my opinion.

Only reason would be for sound and to lose about 7 lbs of weight. Beyond that, you're not going to see any real performance increases. However, from an "is it OK" standpoint, I don't see a bung for an O2 sensor or anything, so no worries there. And it's a bolt on, not a weld on, so it should be a quick swap.

Easy enough to put back if you don't like what it does to the powerband.
