Default Decatting 600F

Hi all,

After many nights of research I still dont have a an answer to a few queries I have so hopefully someone on this forum will have the answers I need.

As you will all know, the CBR600F sounds terrible standard! Even after installing an Akra slip on, I didnt notice much improvment. After watching several youtube videos Ive decided to go down the decat route.

The questions I have;
Can the cat be removed from the existing header pipes (by an exhaust specialist), or would I need to purchase a complete new header system?
Would the bike need mapped following the completion of the decat works? Ive seen mixed opinions so would like to hear from someone who actually have/had it done. Ive also seen people advising a power commander would be required... Is this really necessary?

Any help would be appreciated

Thanks

Lee

Post a pic of the exhaust, especially one with the cat.

I think you'd need a remap for sure.


Would need pics of other questions...

Has anyone else done a decat on the 600f?

I was told by DYNO that they would install a power commander on my bike and do a custom remap for 548. Does that sound about right for price?

I installed a black widow decat header system on my 2012 cbr600f and have experienced absolutely no issues. It runs as smooth as ever and I never had it remapped.

hope this helps.

Cheers for the reply, only just spotted it. Have you got any videos of before and after? I can imagine it's a lot better sounding now you've made the change. I too thought the Akro sounded pretty similar to the stock exhaust.
