Mysterious Bolt/Fastener? Help?

In the process of installing my Corse Titanium exhaust and ran into a snag. The two main mounts holding the cat are ones I have never seen before. I'm really tired and frustrated so taking a break.

I looks like an allen bolt with some type of threaded flat washer? I'm turning and things just spin and not coming off! I think I need to grab the flat washer with vise grips or wrench and then loosen the bolt? Any help is appreciated

Have a look at the diagram and you will see how it is attached at the side of the cat with a circlip etc.

Oh man the diagram is so small I can't see the detail. I can see that it's a Special Screw....meaning "Don't tamper with this shit!" I have no idea to get the circlip off because there is no room to insert any type of tool. Sucker looks really thick too! Oh God why didn't they just use a nut and bolt? I could have been done by now and tucked in bed sleeping! I may just have to drill the bolt out of saw it off. Man this is not fun. PITA! Thanks for trying to help though.

spanner holds it from spinning and the hex will undo it all from the front of the bolt

Sorry guys my bolt was not like this. It was more like a nail - no thread. There was a tiny circlip on the tip of it. I tried to take it off but no way to get to it. I just force the bolt out w/ a large screw driver. I already threw them away so no pictures. Did I tell you California has he strictest emissions laws on the planet? Thanks for all your suggestions. Got the exhaust on. See updated pics on my Surging post. Cheers.

Cali may have the strictest laws, but all bikes imported to the US are 50 state compliant.
