Hi all. I'm new to the forum and certainly enjoy all the comments that I read here. I just purchased a green Viking and have been loving it so far. I do have one question. Has anyone removed the catalytic convertor out of the muffler and if I removed it, what effect would it have on the engine if any? Just thinking it might help with the exhaust overheating issue.

Thanks Viking2k14. I'll check it out. I made and installed the heat shield plates and that seemed to really help the diff. to run cooler. I am thinking that getting rid of the catalytic convertor would remove any restriction and let the exhaust run cooler.

No problem, that member was pretty happy with the finished product
