    I would think the standard Cat would be a pretty efficient spark arrester... :028: :028:

    I would think not but have you had a look at the box to see if it's stamped on? Alternatively have a look down the tailpipe into the box to see if there's a metal mesh.
    A catalytic converter is not classed as a spark arrestor.
    Anything more than two wheels is unnecessary.

    Guess I'll have to take a closer look.  I've looked down the openings in the box before, but doesn't look like there's a mesh screen of any type down there.  Spark arrestors are required in most places here in the States if you ride off road.  Bad news if you get caught riding off road without one where required.  Suppose I could fabricate my own.  Ah, the trials and tribulations of owning a Ducati!  LOL
