We are also working on one currently, we wont be making a slip on though. But you will be able to use our standard exhaust or any aftermarket version, if you want to later sell your bike and put the cat back in that is also possible with our idea.

You can follow our Africa twin Enduro build here:

I will be finishing of the body work this week, so will be doing the exhaust early next week.

Any exhaust shop can help you do this. Just fit a straight pipe in there  :thumleft:

Possible stupid question, but will removing the CAT not void the warranty?

Ja ja ja, glo dit of nie, maar ek is actually nie blond nie.

So lief soos ek is vir 'n aftermarket pyp/de-cat, weet ek nie of ek dit sal risk met so nuwe bike nie.

Veral nie 'n AT nie.  :drif:

And what's your opinion Dux?

I have only ridden the bike about 1km with the pipe installed so can't comment other than to say that it sounds magic , it doesn't seem to have lost any bottom end and midrange feels stronger , top end I can't comment on just yet . 
But I will take it for a test and let you know , if there is anyone in the Brackenfell area with a DCT model who wouldn't mind doing a few roll on tests they can contact me to arrange something .

BTW , I will also be developing a few other things on this bike so more over the next couple of weeks .

Dux have you any more thoughts on the bike and cat removable with regard to performance etc. And how much weight does is save removing it.

In my mind the performance is definitely improved , the wings silencer we used had 2 inserts and I felt the quiet insert gave the best performance .
