Bodis decat

Post by kdm06d » Thu Jan 05, 2017 2:43 am

Bodis now sells a link pipe for the GT.

I bought it and had problems right away. The stop plate for the exhaust valve hits against the servo motor housing. I took it apart and put it back on nearly ten times until i had cut away enough of the housing. Still a PITA trying to find the problem then having to cut other parts of the bike.

It also delivered a lean condition trouble light on the bike.

The bike is also a little slower. I do like the sound and smell, but overall disappointed. I imagine maybe the remus doesnt lose the performance since it is a straight link pipe?

Just wanted to let you guys know.

Thanx, it looks like i made the right decision buying the Remus Link pipe, it fitted perfectly, the origonal CAT took a bit of getting out tho. Mine with the Remus Muffler and Link pipe hasn't thrown any warning lights for running lean, i will leave the end reducer in the muffler until some mapping comes out, probably be too loud with it out, as its pretty loud now.

Dave, how was the performance with the remus? Same, better, or worse?

kdm06d, i think the performance is much the same, I'm thinking some new mapping will unleash the beast, when i did the exhaust and mapping on my departed 1290R, that thing really came alive, so I'm hoping for more of the same. But the GT seems to get along really well, the fueling feels smooth, and its nice around town in the low rev range, so I'm happy with its performance at this point, but i know its not as explosive like the R was.

Be interesting to hear if you can get similar gains as per decat with the 1290R, I was informed ktm worked hard to allow the GT to work best with the original cat and by removing will lose some of its torque.

yes i remove my cat as well but i shouldnt of! poeple say you have to because you remove the SAS. but reality is you wont damage the cat its just full of bull shit. I ride the bike 6 months with cat and sas off. the cat was perfectly normal. But though i might gain some more i actually loose the bottom end. you gain more after the 5000 rpm but the bike isnt the same without the cat.

On a Remus site I've looked at, they show different dyno scenario's, and the most HP, comes from the link pipe, the Remus cone muffler with the baffle removed, so the freer the exhaust system, the more HP and also torque. Ive left my baffle in (outlet reducer) until i get my bike remapped. and I'm happy with how mine runs, it would be interesting to ride a stock bike and mine back to back.

my torque was 131 NM
and Horse power 159 hp

But i have a Sports cat in the link pipe everyone says thats why :( i might need to buy a new one:) thinking of the arrow one but again with the correct air in and better flow out it should gain so much power.

are you sure you fitted it correct ? do you have any pictures? and did you also take out the seals from the OEM cat to put on BOdis?

For me, the most important thing is the engine is running smooth, with good HP and Torque, weather its 145HP 0r 170HP, I'm not too concerned. I read an article from MV Agusta, their super bikes use full HP lest than 20% of the time on the track, and their road bikes use about 2% of full HP available on the road, so max HP is really immaterial. A sweet running torquey engine is all we require.

Oh ya, fitted it correctly. Seals on both ends. Took pictures of the connection between both ends and sent to bodis and he said they look perfect.

The problem with the power dip is that its in 1st/2nd gear right out of take off. Having had my bike for months before I put it on, I never stalled it. After putting it on, there is a flat spot coming out of first and second at low speeds and I have stalled it many times since.

So...Its not the final hp/torque at high speeds thats a problem...its the takeoff now has a flat spot where u have to rev the shiite out of it

Did you do anything on the intake side at the time of removing the cat? I'm not sure what the difference between the gt exhaust and SDR is but I noticed gains in power though I put a K&N filter and uploaded the akra map when I dropped the cat. I bought the bodis on faith the 'S' shape would provide some back pressure and save the torque so it's interesting you're getting negative results by making the bike freer flowing. I expect a new tune to match the mods would give you the results you were looking for.
Enjoy

Does anyone have a photo of the stock setup inside the exhaust valve motor controller? The part where the two braided wires sit in the housing and where it is with engine off? When i put in the bodis stop piece it fried mine amd i had to order a new part and i cant figure out where to turn it to on start up setting
