Exaust Manifold Bolts - How the ___ do you get them out?
I am installing waveeater clips on my 98 GP800 and to do so I need to remove my exaust manifold. I attempted to remove the second joint up from the exaust manifold and only one came out. The others were just stretching and were going to brake if I put more pressure. I added heat but no luck? I than tried the actual exaust manifold bolts with the same results. Please help? Is there any other way to get the covers of the PV without removing the manifold? I am anticipating the bad news cause it sure looks like the manifold needs to come off.

I will never forget the feeling I had trying to remove mine the first time.
Heat is the best you can do. As soon as you think its going to break for sure it will come loose.

hm... the 1300 you don't have to take the manifold off for the waveeaters. haven't ever seen an 800 though.
