Decatting M8 head pipe

Is there any write ups about cutting a window in the stock M8 head pipe and removing the cat? I've searched and can't find anything.

It looks like the M* is one you could get it out without cutting the pipe. Here is a view of the header with exhaust off. CAT is with in easy reach,
I think.

Smitty is correct- I have done an M8 without cutting the pipe. I did take it off the bike though...

How does Harley like us removing cats? Voids the warranty?

The mark of an expect isn't that he knows everything, it's that he knows where to look everything up.
