then you can get to the 3/4" nut that holds the muffler bracket on.
Use a short 3/4" socket.. 3/8 drive.
Did that also when I forgot my spacer between pedal foot peg and needed to pull the pipe again because I wanted to change to another hanger clamp.

It requires a hammer and screwdriver to get that socket off there. It is a wedge fit.

Dirty Bike means rode bike. Nothing to be ashamed of in my world. Wait till you see the end of my 1980 project. Most purists will be horrified.

Like I really care one way or the other.

Don't get me start 60....82 carb lol. It does look a lot cleaner without the crossovers, but I have the big a** AC anyway.

You can have a clean immaculate bike and still ride the crap out of it.

Rok - just for clarity....by removing the master cylinder along with the footpeg and brake pedal, that is the easiest way to remove the front exhaust? I presume you need to bleed the brakes when all is done.

Thank you all for your input.

No. You are no reading me right. No fluid is lost my way. I had already bled the brakes on mine when I did what I posted. You just let the master cylinder dangle by the hard line. Floating in the air.

No need to bleed the brakes.

My bad...yes I read it wrong. That is definitely easier. Maybe I will cut both front and rear now that it is not that bad to remove the front. Thanks Rok...you rock.
