Doing the exhaust mod

Hey all,

This subject has been done a few times but I need some specific details cleared before I ruin this exhaust.

So stock pipes are off the bike and rivets are drilled and tapped out. But cannot get tips off. They won't budge. Anyone got any ideas

Pull harder! They can be very tight. Spray some WD40 in the fixed side. Might help.

What a beast of a motorcycle!
It growls and rages and flies across the tarmac like a wild animal that has escaped the confinement of a cage and after merely waiting restlessly until the release, will not endure being locked up ever again.

Heat the tips a little, they're ally and will heat quickly and come off easily.

Leather gloves, no pliers!

Or those rubber working gloves. Good grip. And somehow to hold the exhaust steady.
