    S1000r decat pipe ?

    Hi, I will soon be entering s1000r ownership, so a few questions if I may.
    One thing that crosses my mind initially is will a decat pipe be worth fitting ?
    In the past I have had bikes with these already fitted, so can't really comment on whether they are a good idea or not.
    And if they are thought to be a good idea am I correct in thinking the s1000rr is the same ?
    Cheers

    If you fit a decat pipe, I reckon a PowerCommander, or remap is an absolute must.

    If I am ever on life support - Unplug me......
    Then plug me back in..........

    See if that works .....

    The cat may well be an MOT requirement before long. TBH the bike is so good "as is" why would you want to mess up its fuelling for very little gain.

    It's pretty loud already and the fuelling is great stock so I would leave it alone.

    The look of the cat alone on all S1000* models is absolutely disgusting and worth changing for visuals alone.
