Just bought a 990R

I thought I would stop in and say hello. I'm super excited to finally have the mv I've been wanting for quite a while. Took my first ride around town and it was great but given the high temperature for today is around or just over 100 deg. F it was just about too hot to ride.

Congrats for your new bike, I'm sure you'll enjoy it a lot!
And just for you to know, in our winter here (when temperatures are about 21 to 25 deg), my bike's temperature is normally at least 90c deg.

Imagine it during the summer...100 deg is usal.

I Do have a question though. I noticed that the cat gets very warm. I am considering getting rid of it. But I can't decide to just buy a midpipe or just upgrade to the complete race exhaust. If I remove the cat do I need the race ecu even if I leave the stock cans? What is everyones opinions on this.

Congrats on your new bike.
Your exhaust is all welded together from the header pipes through the cat. Here is one that the cat has been cut off of a 1078. I do not know if it is possible with the 990 because you have a butterfly valve in your exhaust. You can buy just the header and linkpipe with the ECU and keep your stock mufflers. Your bike will definitely run better with the race ECU and you do not have to use the o2 sensor.
