How many catalysts are there?

How many catalysts are there on the SMR/SMT?
One in each silencer? Or are there one in the Y-pipe to? Have heard people talking about that, I have akra slipon on my bike but the original Y-pipe

I believe they sit at the end-can end of the y-pipe.

If you look in Kev's SMT Mod thread where he re-packs his end cans you can see a photo of the cat.

Because you can never have too much of a great thing!

Yeah but he is running leo-vince with catalysts between the Y-pipe and the silencers I think.
I dont have any catalysts in my akra slipon and not in the end of the Y-pipe.

But I have heard people talking about a catalyst in the Y-pipe and in the original silencers and wonder if thats correct or if there only the catalysts in the original silencers.

The Cats are in the OEM silencer not the Y pipe.

There is not much HP lost through the cat, the HP is lost in the baffling, each time the exhaust gasses is redirected you lose HP.
