    1999 xl 1200

    Guys, I picked up a 1999 Yamaha XL 1200 late last summer. It has 138 Hrs on it. I did notice when I run it for 5 minutes or so the alarm goes off indicating thet the exhaust is hot. Is this the catylitic converter or something else. By the way top speed on this was only in the low 50's

    How do you remove the cc without tearing eberything out?

    Any thoughts would be greatly appreciated.

    Thanks

    Ron

    Hello Ron welcome to the forum, Your cat. converter probably came apart. You can order a Dplate and a chip from the forums online store and that will take care of your problem.
