Whats the easiest way to remove the headers? I was checking it out and it looks like i have to remove a few parts before I can unbolt the right side header...anybody got a secret to doing this more easily? Thanks!

Also, as far as removing the blue, Blue Job works great, but it doesnt seem to have any effect on the yellow/gold. Whats the best way to go about removing the gold...Buffing wheel???

I didn`t remove anything but the headers.12mm nuts at the ports,13mm at the x-over and a long allen wrench to remove the bolts under the pegs.I pushed down the brake pedal and pushed the allen in over the spring. PITA to re-install that one,but do-able..
Larry,I think 5Bass has removed those lower bolts once more than me,but I`ve removed the header bolts over 20 times since Thanksgiving. :-D And you know what? I`m still using the original copper gasket with a smear of copper gasket sealer on it.Never has leaked even once. Was probably made in Thailand or Siam or whatever else you call a beautiful country with a 3000 year history. :-D
