    I am putting new pipes on the roadstar today and am stuck. The arm that the stock exhaust is bolted to has to come off. The two #8 allen bolts holding this arm on are tight as all hell and I cant budge them. Are these left or right handed threads? Maybe I am going the wrong way? I am sure that they are full of lock tite like the back ones were.
    Any suggestions?

    They are standard threads but they have enough loctite on them to make them damn near impossible to get off without an impact gun. If you don't have air tools then the best thing I can suggest is heat and some kind of impact to break the loctite loose..........Good Luck!

    I went and got a socket with a #8 allan key in it and put the breaker bar on it. It was convinced to release.

    Chilli, did you get the baffles with your pipes? I'm really leaning towards them, but $60+ from Samson Some of the reviews weren't good either.
