The Arrow De Cat mid pipe eliminates the heavy and heat soaked catalytic converter and resonator chamber for a 'true through' performance upgrade for the KTM 790 Adventure. This mid-pipe will fit all stock configurations both at the stock collector and muffler joints. What this means is that any muffler that will fit the stock mid-pipe will fit the Arrow Racing mid-pipe, as well as the attachment points, are exactly the same as stock. No cutting or modification required as this is a bolt-on product.
Decibel test of a KTM 790 Adventure with an Arrow muffler and an Arrow de-cat mid-pipe at varying RPM's under a 15% dynamometer brake load. 790 Adventure Arrow Muffler: http: http://www.rottweilerperformance.com/arrow-ktm-790-adventure-racing-mid-pipe/ 790 Adventure Arrow De-cat Mid-pipe: http://www.rottweilerperformance.com/arrow-ktm-790-adventure-racing-mid-pipe/ 790 Adventure Mapping Options: http://www.rottweilerperformance.com/dynojet-powercommander-v-for-ktm-790-adventure/ NOTE: This video is designed as a direct comparison to other videos we produce in the same environment and not intended as a direct decibel result of any kind. The DB meter will also pick up some noise from the dynamometer drum, drivetrain, and tire spinning. In order to offer the most accurate sound under load, these are the compromises. PS: Please don't give this video a thumbs down just because you don't like loud exhausts. We are just showing you stuff. :)

Good quality part. Installed well. No fit problems. Would definitely recommend this mid pipe. Gave bike nice sound. I was afraid it would be too loud but it’s just right. Did a 200 mile ride. No performance loss noted. No trouble lights on.

Just installed the Mid Pipe from Arrow. All the instruction were right on. Fit was prefect. Was worried it would be to loud. With stock can But its just right, also power delivery was right.

In short . The cat delete pipe fit perfect on a Norden 901, And it sounds So much better. Not loud at all . I Love it ..

Well-made part, step by step instructions were very clear. Re-using OEM exhaust gasket was a bit of a task but worked. Modestly louder with stock can but wife hasn't even noticed yet! Bike runs great including idle with not additional adjustments

The worst part is getting the cat out, but once that is done the rest is simple.

Ok, I had no idea mid pipe will make such a huge change in sound and performance but it did. Its a must have combined with Arrow slip on, bike now sounds like a proper twin.

Looking to reduce heat, lower weight and improve sound. Solid part!
Install was straight forward.

Biggest reason I had for installing the Arrow Decat is weight savings. Secondly I felt the bike was too quiet. I like to hear what's going on for shifting, clutching etc...This product is a good 4 pounds lighter than stock and really wakes up the exhaust tone. Seems to have moved power more into lower part of the powerband. Good for offroad. Good quality and not a bad install. I opted for this more expensive decat in hopes of retaining stock performance as it has some back pressure so won't lean out the fuel mixture beyond the bikes ability to compensate. So far so good.

You will feel the power in low mid rpm and sound not crazy at all 5 out 5

Hi All, if you’re thinking of upgrading the 890 exhaust - this is the way to go. The Italians knocked this one out of the park.
The performance and sound are incredible- not to mention dropping some weight.
Well worth the money and time-

I just installed my Arrow midpipe on my 890 Adventure R. When I got the original Cat out, I was amazed at the weight difference between the two. It feels like it runs a bit cooler, has a bit more power, and sounds great with my Akrapovic exhaust l

Good product quality, durable, holds up well in the dirt, water crossings etc. Loud with stock exhaust. Mellow delivery of power, no maintenance lights. Best part, lighter, open area to let dirt and debris fall through, no leaf fires under my seat and the excessive heat is gone.

The mid pipe took about one hour to install without seeing any instructional video. It fit perfectly. There was a slight weight reduction and a deeper, sharper sound to the exhaust.

I've had an Arrow Titanium Muffler for a while and finally got the Arrow Decat.
The arrow decat is 3.5lbs lighter than the catalytic converter. I've noticed a decrease in heat around my feet.
Install was easy other than when I went to put my skidplate back on it hit the header to decat clamp so I had to clock that differently, no big deal.
Slight increase in noise but not annoyingly so.

I had the Arrow titanium muffler and Rottweiler intake system on my 790R, which provided amazing results, once I installed the Arrow mid pipe the motor felt softer and didn’t have quite the punch as before. Thinking I might need the mapping adjusted or may go back to the stock cat.

Rottweiler as usual is great. Pipe was back ordered and only a few days past their expected dates.
Install, bout 1 1/2 hrs , not hard or challenging at all. Needed to drop pan and pull foot pegs off. All are simple.
The weight difference is noted. The heat difference is amazing!!! The sound yum ! I’m still running stock pipe I don’t plan on upgrading that as I love the sound now. And I’m sure I’ll dent this one up anyways on the trails
Also installed kick stand bypass concurrently as you are already there. Also purchased from Rott.

I pondered the decat concept for a long while, as there are so many 'cheap' options. After watching the dyno results and seeing the disappointment on faces of 790 owners who opted cheap, I ordered the Arrow from Will at Rottweiler. Sound is awesome, with no loss to low or mid range. The Arrow decat mimics the stock cat, and just fits easily and when you fire the bike up you really notice the distinct sound. Thank you again Chris, Will and Jessica D. My 890 Rally sounds like a dream.

Fits up nice and replaces cat.

Step by step directions were perfect and easy to use, pipe fit perfectly, sounds good, not to much louder than stock, just a nice thumper sound.
Posted by Mark Soiland on 12th Jun 2020
Fits well, easy to install once you remove the stock cat. Sound with stock muffler is just about right. Bike is still pretty quiet while warming up and mild riding....which is what I as looking for.
