Norman Hyde Catalytic Converter Elimination X-Pipe
This is the part you new 2016 water cooled 900 & 1200 twin owners have been waiting for. Â Bypassing the restrictive catalytic converter increases performance by increasing exhaust flow and saving many pounds in needless weight. Â It will also make your exhaust sound louder.
**NO RE-MAPPING IS REQUIRED according to manufacturer.**

Description[Courtesy of Norman Hyde]
The powers that be have decreed that the latest generation of motorcycles have to fitted with quite substantial catalytic converters. Removing a very small amount of pollutants from what is generally a low mileage vehicle may or may not contribute much to saving the planet. (next time your struggling through city traffic trying not to breath too much smog from all the clapped out taxis you might take a view). However one thing the cat is very effective at is making your Triumph sound like a mid 80’s 250 Honda. So where the law etc is permitting removing it will save just under 2kg and it most certainly will improve the sound, even with stock pipes, but more so with TOGA pipes (of course)
**At the time of writing this we have tried this on the dyno with T100 and T120 in 2016 UK spec. In both cases it would be safe to use without a Power Commander or a suitable map for the current ECU.**
**OUR ADVICE IS TO DYNO AFTER FITTING**
Fitting a Power Commander V is the best current solution (when used with stock mufflers).
Please treat with an enormous degree of scepticism claims from other less thorough (and shall we say scrupulous) that no mods are required and the bike “self learns”. Some of them have been making these claims before some of the models were even launched. You figure!
