Header studs

Recommended Posts

How hard is it to remove/install a header studs while the head is still on the engine in the bike? Are they red locktited in? Should I hit them with some heat before a put a vice grip to them?

I ate some s@$t the other day and bashed my header good and it looks like I tweaked one on the studs too and was thinking I should replace it so I don't have to jamb a new header collar over the old bent one. 

 

What are you thoughts? Leave it or Remove it?

They are generally easy to replace. Sometimes a little heat will help.

The "double nut" process is much easier than using Vice-Grips...

10-4 thanks, figured double nut first, vice grips as a last resort.
