Catalytic converter

Quick question, does the trophy have a catalytic converter, just curious my friend has a Harley and is removing his for more HP. If not why not what's the difference?

It does have one. It's small, and besides being illegal to remove, I don't think it would make any practical difference to performance if you removed it.

Triumph offer a De-Cat box for the R3 [which I have - and added Staintunes to it] so you'd think they'd offer the same for the TTSE. :187:

For all the enjoyment we get out of our bikes, having to use a pretty unobtrusive catalytic converter, so that others don't have to breath poisonous exhaust gases, seems a very small price to pay to me  :028:

Besides, your stock Trophy, complete with catalyst, is highly likely to be producing much more power than his HD - no what damage he does to his exhaust system....

+1 :028:  not to mention doing so is a federal violation in the US and I wouldn't be surprised if similar in Canada

Removing it in a Harley is one thing. Removing the CC in a TTSE is another. I wouldn't be a bit surprised if removing the CC in the Harley gives better performance, while removing it in the TTSE will decrease the performance.

IMO, the TTSE is too high tech to play with such things, as it could  effect some table in the ECU or whatever. IMO, don't change anything that can affect performance in the TTSE.

If you want a faster bike, buy one! That's the right way to do it.
