    Exhaust removal question...

    Hello... I am trying to get the filter out for a 25 hour inspection on the Ultra300x. Per the Riva instructions, and what everyone says here all I need to do is loosen the hose clamps on the down pipe, take off the cooling line, remove the 4 bolts and slide the waterbox back a bit. I managed to get the waterbox to slide back an inch or so, and it won't go any further. The fitting is loose on the waterbox to exhaust connection and moving freely.

    The problem I can't get the downpipe off. It isn't back far enough to make clearance for the filter to come out, and I can't pull up because the filter locks it in on the vertical axis. I can't get the waterbox to go back any further, so WTF do I do? Trying to avoid breaking more gasket sealing surfaces by removing the whole pipe. Any advice would be appreciated on this simple looking job that has become a headache...

    You twist the drop pipe as you lever between the waterbox and s/c pulley

    Thank you sir.. A nice thumb laceration and some twisting as you stated, the filter is out.. That was a lot harder than the instructions play it down to be..lol..
