Head pipe won't come off

Recommended Posts

Trying to remove head pipe to check the copper gasket, can't get the head pipe off. I believe the bracket that tightens the head pipe to engine is warped and not sure where to go from here. I don't want to screw up the threads on the studs. Any help would be much appreciated

have you removed the muffler already?

Yes, removed the silencer and everything. There shouldn't be anything not allowing the head pipe to come off. The bracket will go half the length of the studs then it won't budge at all

If the studs are bent they can be removed and new ones installed. Competent mechanic of any sort could do this.
