Question Anyone have a mid-pipe (no cat) on their F41000???

I have an 05' F41000 and am thinking about getting the mid-pipe/removing the cat. I ONLY want to do this if it makes the bike sound better/louder, since I know there is basically no performance increase. If it doesn't sound significantly meaner without the cat, then its a waste of my time and money. Let me know where I can get one and if there are different brands etc...THANKS in advance!!! MK

I had the cat removed from the mid-pipe of my 06 Senna (i.e. F4 1000R).

No increase in noise that I could hear. Small increase in power, not really noticeable. Certainly cleaned up the fuelling around 5k rpm, and therefore very much worth doing.

I would suggest an RG3 along with the midpipe. Just what I did.

What a beast of a motorcycle!
It growls and rages and flies across the tarmac like a wild animal that has escaped the confinement of a cage and after merely waiting restlessly until the release, will not endure being locked up ever again.

If you remove the mid-pipe, will the F4 still pass an emissions test? (Probably not an issue until it's 5 years old)

Had mine removed, found the bike was smoother and could breath better. No notice in sound, or not that I have noticed.

Can you guys recommend the most "cost-efficient" place to get a mid-pipe, the RG3 slip ons, and the race ECU?

I spoke with some mechanics today from FBF and they said that it is not necessary to re-program the eprom if you are only instaling a midpipe. I just ordered the straight through midpipe today, so I guess I will find out first hand for myself.

save your money unless

you are going to add the RG3 and then it is money well spent.
