Texas heat? My bike only read 107 on the way home. I almost put the liner in my mesh jacket.
When you remove the cats, install the DK Performance torque washers. I think you'll need part number # 158 for the inside diameter of the head pipes. This will raise the DB loudness by 1 point, but also decrease the heat that you feel with the cats in place. The HP and TQ will be abouit the same.Just got cams and a great tune, but the CATS gotta go.
This Texas heat just dont give shoot about torque..
It just doesnt matter when your sitting on your bike. The Sun beating down on your helmet trying to poach your brain and your bike trying to roast your chestnuts.
I hear "dont do it" and "you will regret it".
Well I reget not buying "NETFLIX" so I suspect I won't regret losing a little bit of pull.
I meed to slow my as... down any way. Those CAMS go to your head pretty fast.
Not if you install the torque tubes in the head pipes that Rylan sells or the DK Performance thunder torque inserts. Both of these products will hep you gain back the torque that is lost when you remove the cats."and a great tune"
I assume you mean dyno'd?
Remove the CATS and you'll need another dyno, no?
The steel frame bikes were not designed to use cats. I think Half_Crazy posted about this subject.Why is the general rule not to remove the cats on a cross bike but generally not considered a problem on the steel frames? I know I ran with bassani turn outs and pcv on my gunner and it ran great.
And these Torque tubes are only for Steel framed bikes? Correct?
The steel frame bikes use smaller head pipes and don't have cats inside of the head pipes. When you remove the cats that are in the ends of the head pipes of the Cross Country bikes , you'll need to replace them with some thing inside of the head pipes to gain back the exhaust velocity that is lost when you remove the cats or you'll lose low end torque.And these Torque tubes are only for Steel framed bikes? Correct?
I sure will when I get the time to remove the whole exhaust system on my XCT, and floor board on the right side to do this. I bought a used set of stock Cross Country head pipes to modify and compare the difference in TQ and HP against the stock head pipes with the cats in them.if you would please, as you go through this process take some temp readings for comparison purposes.
The cats are inside of the head pipes at the end. When you remove both mufflers you can see them, You will need to remove the left muffler, and also the short exhaust pipe in front of it so that you can see the cat that's inside of the left head pipe.Ok still a Victory newbie here. Are the cats inside the stock mufflers ? I have Arlen Ness Big Honkers slipons.
