Most popular mod is removing the cat. Which is pretty simple to do. The muffler is 3 pieces with the cat spot welded into the center piece. Drill the 2 spot welds and the cat comes out.

The only real problem we have had with these saws is the fuel line coming off the nipple inside the tank. That issue is solved by adding an O ring to the fuel line for that little bit of extra clamping power.

This saw didn't get it but I took a couple pictures just to show what is needed for installing a .325 bar and chain on these saws. A clutch drum and bar from a 5105 plus a 10x16x.2 mm shim is needed. This is probably a worthwhile modification just to have rim sprockets instead of spur. The bar needs slight modification to allow it to oil. We drill 2 holes in the groove down through into the adjuster holes. Black lines show where to drill.

Where you use O-ring on line fix.  I have used very small zip ties with success on other saws.  Never thought of O-ring, was this a OEM update fix?
