Default Separating the header and muffler-slip on system.

     

Anyone got any bright ideas to separate the header and muffler? Mine is stuck tight, can't believe it! It's off my new bike and I need to get them apart to ensure the bolt holes line up and the cylinder head/muffler get a good seal....

Let it run for a bit first and maybe things will loosen up with the heat? Never heard of one sticking together that hard. You might need to use a wooden block and a hammer to loosen it up if it's that tight.

Maybe someone put some high-temp silicone to "make a good seal" or maybe it's never been removed and needs some convincing.... I agree with Cowboy. Perhaps some heat and tapping. I'd also throw some twisting in there. Try to use the tabs on the muffler to get some twist and try to break the seal.
