A bit of corrosion is one thing; stainless steel galling is quite different. But please yourself.

My OEM nuts don't bind cause I use anti-seize on them.

You don't use stainless studs because they're not as strong as good carbon steel studs. If you want the nuts to not rust onto the studs, use stainless nuts on carbon steel studs. No galling problems and they won't rust together. Use anti-seize.

You can get stainless steel studs that are specially heat treated, and as strong as steel ones, but they cost a fortune!

Yes, I wondered if I should have worded that differently. In the realm of affordable, reasonably available stuff you use carbon steel studs.

Exhaust studs used to be commonly available in auto parts stores as a lot of cars used 5/16" or 3/8" studs with the fine/coarse thread pairing on exhaust manifolds.

Well it is xxxxed now.
Tried roller stud remover. tried welding nuts on ..welded three on in a stack.

But it was just too thin and rusted at the base. Yes it snapped.

had an attempt to drill it out with thin long drill bits and a 90 degree drill head today ...but no chance/ just a xxxxed up ragged how with the remnants of the old one inside.

I knew I should not have started to do it as I was in a bad mood...so now I know for sure it its crewed and login to need the head off to do it. SO that is not login to happen for a long time.

So login to tap a random thread int he hoel that is left there for now and stick a short 4-8mm bolt in it

Not riding the bike any way ..and still got the engine to arrive and put back in the 04 bike. So not going to strip another bike down. I have the 93 to ride every day.

Bodged it back together, ran it up to warm up the engine oil. done an oil change. Will do it again once I get it running properly ..but it was last changed according to the paperwork and the writing inside the clutch cover ...October 2006.

So new engine and transmission oil, fork oil brake fluids and plugs.

The brake slaves were seized up ..pushed out ok, but rusted up on the exterior...so got new piston/ seal kits coming . Exhausts too..so will put it back together. bolt the exhaust on somehow and leave it for now...stick the bugger int eh back of the shed for a few years...

There are these, a bit pricey but should help you. Might just save you having to remove the head.

Edit, found this one cheaper

I was actually thinking of making something like that any way, once the head was off.
The down tube is in the way, so you can’t get straight at the hole any way.
Might manage be removing front engine mount , tie bar etc and jacking the motor over to get drill access, but not going to think about it for now

Thanks for the thought though
