Default Stock exhaust, and frame rail cut

Am I the only one who had an absolute BEAR of a time getting the stock exhaust off ? I mean, WTF !??! It took me an hour to wrestle those pipes off !! Now, the lower frame rail.... I can't get it off of the bike. I removed the bolts, and the screws, holding the lines to it, and I can not get it off ! Am I missing something ? What else do I have to do to get it to come off ?

Do a search and you can find a manual that will help.
I take WD40 and spray it around the end of the muffler and the head pipe to loosen the two. When you put the new pipes on give it a shot of WD40 and they will slid right on and NO it will not hurt nothing.

I eventually got the stock stuff off, but it was a battle. I still haven't gotten the frame rail off. I may try and cut it while on the bike.

I cut the rail with it on the bike, just jam a piece of thick cardboard between the rail and the lines so when you get all the way through, you won't nick anything.

I used a hacksaw with a good blade, it goes through pretty easy. After cutting it off I cleaned it up with a file and painted the bare metal

So if some one comes out with pipes that make better horse power and are sweater looking how are you going to put the bracket back on.

You can still put the bracket back on because it mounts to the swingarm bolt, it just wont have the support from the lower frame rail.

Order a new frame rail from the dealer. But I seriously doubt that'll happen.

I got it cut, and the pipe mounted, for the most part. Found that two of the exhaust studs were stripped/cross threaded when I removed the stock exhaust, and I don't want to reuse them, so I have to get two new ones before I even start the motor.
