Removing the Cat

Now before you have a go at me, please understand I have the mechanical aptitude of a 6 year old, i know the theory but for the life of me i can't trust anything I do myself. Installing the BC Tips is about the limit of my ability.

Just how long does it take to take the cat out and install an X-Pipe in it's place? (Really want to know so the dealer does not rip me off on time take n too badly when i take it to them to fit)

Ta

================================================== =============
0-60 in .......oh! wait.... I really don't care anymore (but it's still 1200cc of raw throbbing Trumpet so bugger off Mr.Scooter!)

Did the x-pipe installation in about 1 h, the re-inetallation of the cat in about 1/2 h.

2-3 hours should be a reasonable time

Agree with this. Also, there are some tips here and there on the forum. Big one is fit the weird clamps on the new kit before putting in the pipes. They are uber fiddly.

TEC has a good vid on the how to.

also have the right tools.



about 3 hours of work.

be meticulous because the slightest crooked movement can damage the paint frame to remove the catalyst.

and otherwise: 2 hours at the concession
it avoids trouble,if there is a problem, they are the ones who pay
and when you buy a bike at this price, you can get a little buck to avoid the trouble

the guy is talking more than he is working
he works a funny way and sweat like crazy

he must certainly be more comfortable with his "like" on Facebook with tools in hands


one more thing: and in addition he has something that he does not even know where he comes from! and it gives advice !! too much
