I know this topic has been beaten to death but I found a great welder and he is going to cut the end off and remove cat and reweld the muffler.

****Just to be certain, will I run lean and need to do something about that?***


It has factory air filters. 2016 wildcat trail. He said $50-$100. Seems cheaper than an aftermarket muffler and easier too

You'll be fine with just the muffler mod.

Did that same thing myself shortly after purchasing our early 14 trail, over 3000 miles now with no problems. Good luck
Thanks

Had a friend remove the cat. Here is what the inside looks like. He didn’t take any after pics tho. Sound didn’t change a lot but at least I know it’s free “er” flowing

Is the cat in the inlet tube, and is that what was removed? The rest of the stuff in the "before" pic looks like standard muffler innards.

Yes the cats are in the inlet tube on the trails and sports. I also drill a series of 1/2" holes in the outlet tube so all of the exhaust gas doesn't have to zig zag back to the first chamber in order to go out the outlet tube of the round mufflers.
