Maybe..

...or maybe not. If it not significantly louder than a standard system, or the tester is deaf, you'll be OK. Catalyst is not needed on a bike.

As a rough guide

1.
a. Any part of the exhaust system missing or excessively deteriorated

b. A leak in an exhaust system which causes excessive noise to be emitted

c. An exhaust system mounting missing or one which is in such a condition that it does not fully support the exhaust system.

2. A silencer which is in such a condition or is of such a type that the noise emitted is clearly in excess of that which would be produced by a similar machine fitted with a standard silencer in average condition.


3. A silencer marked 'NOT FOR ROAD USE', TRACK USE ONLY' or similar words.

 

Best option,ask the tester beforehand if they think the system is ok before carrying out the test. Most (not all) would be happy enough to give you an idea if it's fine

MOT

A bike WON'T pass an MOT without a FULL SYSTEM. It'll be way too loud with only half a system.
