Check out my FAQ thread.. I'm guessing you are removing the muffler (box under the bike), the cat is built into the header tubes.

07 R6, MJS Header, GYTR slip on, smog block offs, K&N, flashed ECU, PCV, AutoTune, -1/+2.

Re: 2008 cat delete

I have a header midpipe combo with the cat deleted for sale if your interested. I'm selling because the zafm wideband o2 sensor doesnt fit right (too tall) and I decided to go with titanium headers. $100 bucks and I will be in orlando in two weeks so we can met up if your interested.
