Either buy a link pipe without a cat ( Depending on model) or cut one end off, remove the shit inside and weld it back up.

Some good info here:

That's an alternative to gutting the standard system.

Good luck which ever way you choose to go.

It ain't what you ride, it's the way you ride it.

How about catnip or a mouse to entice it out?

Wink how?

Put a pair of witness marks across the front cat weld......
Saw through the middle of the weld
WEARING A RESPIRATOR AND GLOVES, drill holes around the outside of the core
Remove the core......with a carbide burr remove the last of the core(I use a double cut olive shape)

Align the marks and weld it up try to match the welding style



Have fun
