Default The Cat's out of the Bag now!

.. errr the PIPE I mean.

Pulled the Catalytic convertors and drilled out the baffles this evening.

Went for a short 15 minute ride, pulled a couple good hills and got her up to speed.

Sound is much better especially when you "get on it".

Got home and put my hand within appx 3" of the collector pipe (where the front and rear join and the crossover is) and did not feel it was too hot to hold my hand there.

Only "odd" thing I noticed when I started the bike up from cold (never checked this before) was that the Left exhaust gases got hot before the Right.

Anyone have thoughts on that?

It didn't happen if you don't have before and after IR temperature readings, hp and torque figures But be careful now that we know the US feds are trailing just about everyone. If you get audited or start hearing small drones fly by know that they're likely looking to verify your mattress tag hasn't also gone missing! Just because your in our 51st state, don't think it couldn't happen. If we can spy on our friends and enemies around the world, Canada is a simple remote controlled drone flight away.

Congratulations on your catectomy!

All the best,

Mark

There is a diverter plate built into the cross-over pipe right in front of the right side cat. If you would have looked up the pipe with the cat removed you would have seen that this plate blocks a major portion of the right side exhaust. The logic of this plate ??? Who knows except Victory. I bent the plate over to the left in mine so it mostly blocks the cross-over section to the left side, removed just the right side cat and now most of my exhaust comes out the right side in more of a 2 into 1 fashion.

Well, let's see ... I guess partly because I am posting in the "Victory Cross Country and Cross Roads" forum so I ASSuMEd some folks might be able to guess and partly because I never added it to my sig (until a few minutes ago) and partly because I didn't think more of it.

That answer your Q ???

It's now in my sig.

By removing your cats and bending over the diverter plate to create a 2 into 1 effect, what were your end results. Did you have any idle issues, ecm issues, more power less heat ? I would love to see a comparison of before and after.

Where are the cats (or cat) located? It's easier to type this now than to go look at my bike when I get home later. Did you have to install a pipe in it's place?
