    Catalytic converter question

    Hi, I have removed the exhaust on a 1200xl and notice the cat inside freely moves. Is this normal? Thanks!!

    No it shouldn't move like that. Time for a d-plate!

    hi and thanks. Can you explain the d-plate and where it may go etc. I have been looking at the schematic and just not sure. I am checking at http://www.yamahapartsdepot.com/fich...ion_detail.asp

    The d-plate bolts in place of the cat, gives the engine the backpressure to simulate a cat con... buy an r&d also get a chip to replace the sansor... should be about $100... a 3-4 hour job at worst....

    Most dealers won't have one onhand; they can order one if they are a Riva distributor. Luckily for you, Greenhulk is a distributor and can get it for you at a discount.

    well things were going really good and then i noticed a bog. turns out it looks to be some sort of fuel issue. turn it on reserve and she bolts out and holds WOT but in the "on" position she bogs but only at WOT, half is fine. Maybe clogged fuel lines, fuel pump, bad peacock or how ever you spell it. If anyone has any ideas please share. Thanks!!
