Removing Exhaust
Hey guys. I have a 2003 v star 650 classic and I am going to remove the pipes. So I was wondering if there are any tricks to getting them off easy and what tools to use. Thanks

RE: Removing Exhaust
Spray a little oil, or something like PB blaster on the studs. Then, you can just remove the nuts from the stud. ( this sounds more like we are catrating a bullBiggrin) For me the front was a tight squeeze. So, since my bike was fairly new, I just used a double nut on the stud, and removed them from the engine so the exhaust would just slide right out. Otherwise it's painless. If you go with a slip on style exhaust like the V&H Cruzers, it will be even easier. What kind of exhaust to you have in mind?

I bought it a couple a weeks ago and the pipes are bluing pretty bad. So I am going to pull them off and paint them black. They arent stock but Im not sure what kind they are and Im not sure if there is a way to find out.

RE: Removing Exhaust
If you have a pic of them, I'll hazard a guess. Have you considered wrapping them? That seems to be the latest craze. If you are removing them, you will most likely need to pick up new crush gaskets before you re-install.
