George, So your 06 California 1200 had one catalyst unlike the 06 49 state 1200s which had none while the 06 49 state 883s had one? Could you post your California info on the Cat Con thread that Bone mentioned here? Thanks!

The removal of Zink and other cat harming aditives is the reason behind the Factory telling you to use Diesel engine oil if car oil is to be used in an emergency.

That's when it comes to dino oil anyway, if you use synt then don't worry, they do not need those aditives.

Not true - well, not true for diesel and motorcycle oils, as the synthetics still use just as high levels of ZDDP.

Some old data - but not so old that it was prior to the latest API standards and though some of this may have changed, the patterns of levels are likely the same/similar today.

Anyway, you'll see plenty of snythetics that use high levels of ZDDP (based on viscosity - which is basically how the car oils and diesel/motorcycle oils were separated by practical application).

I just kind of remembered a oil article from Donny Peterson and there the analysis showed less metals but huge amounts of Molybden in Synt.
Can't find the article anymore tho.

Boy am I sorry I asked

now, at the risk of causing more confusion, I thought that the big difference between automotive and motorcycle oil were the additives like moly etc... that could cause clutch problems in shared systems, but since the sportster has seperate engine/transmission oil it was ok(ish, not trying to start a debate, just understand) to use for the engine, but not the tranny.

Also, as an addendum to this whole thread, I was re-reading, and it is the PENN GRADE 1 that is not recommended for cats, not their regular oil...so ya, sorry about that

When I gronk mod my cat equip exhaust; international 883 R model sold im Canada, I cut the weld's tacks at the body of the front muffler. I immerge the muffler in water so as not to blue the chrome. I use s dremel equip with a cutting disk and made sure the inner will slip out. I did cut the cat part, then add a piece of 1 1/4 pipe to the inner baffle so it sit as the one without the cat did. I drill the hole to my liking. When the power start to drop i close some holes an then at max power reweld both baffle in. 10 dyno pulls was use so go to a friend with one. The back muffler was easy to reweld= regular gronk mod. The front one was immerse in water as to cool the 3 weld spots. You can barely see it so make sure to tack it were it will show the less or paint black and don't worry.

I've seen the bradpenn warning also, then I saw something funny; STP oil additive now says on the bottle that it has the zink additives, but STP does not say not to use it in cat equiped vehicles. I've been running 15-40 in my gas engines (cat equipped) for about a decade now. Near 300,000 miles on one without any cat problems.

IMO, you'd have to be burning quite a bit of oil to be getting much zink in your cat. Better safe than sorry though I guess. My dad had a cat fire years ago, it was no fun. Class Delta fire, couldn't put it out with water or fire exstinguishers.

Just went out and checked both the head pipes and mufflers on my 2009 1200C and did not see anything on them about containing a catalytic converter. Both mufflers did say they met the noise emission standards.

Your mufflers don't have cats. US Sportsters didn't have cats until 2014.
