    If you don’t wanna do the drillin’ an chiselin’ an buthcerin’ on your exclusive hand built motorcycle... you could call Ollie...

    Designed with lots of adjustability to ensure a good and stress free fitment (this is a pre production part, hence not polished):

    Plus there's room to drop the oil as well, a definite bonus!

    If one went with this de-cat, would you need to change maps too or not necessary?

    I don't think so. Are you running decats now with loud mufflers ? You should be good.

    Did you got a remap with the load shorty silencers?
    If so, you can probably install a decat pipe without needing a remap.

    Yes , This is what Norton Factory told us a long ago. With or without cats is the same . You are good to go . The main difference is the deepness of the exhaust note , without cats you can hear it a bit deeper (better) !

    My Bike came from the dealer like this so I dont actually know what map is on it. It runs like a top so I guess its the right one?

    It can be queried with the software and cable . Is the dealer still in business ? Maybe you can call them. You have a Euro3 Omex , It was probably done already .
