    But note I said "good" catalytic converters.  The smog standards for motorcycles are lower than for cars, so they put in fairly wimpy catalytic converters.  Worse yet, many motorcycle assholes put on after market pipes to make them louder and sound baddass.  Thus, even worse.

    It's very easy and possible to make the CAT on motorcycles much better, but until it's required, there is very little incentive to do so.  Basically, these days it's California emission standars that determine most everything.
