removing exhaust.. help

Hey guys/gals I have an 06 cbr6oo which I have removed all but one screw required to take off stock exhaust. The left over bolt (hex) head is stripped. It's the bolt near the brake fluid reservoir and does not direct affectly the removal of pipe, but attatches heat shield to frame. However I cannot take the exhaust off. Do I need to take of completely ALL the side heat shield inorder to take off exhaust. ps once the bolts are removed from tail is the muffler suppose to drop easily. My doesn't and can't seem to locate any bolts / screw holding the muffler in place.

post pictures of where you think the exhaust is still hooked up. By pulling the exhaust a little bit, you should be able to tell where the exhaust is still attached. I'm thinking it still mite be connected to the cat. but post pictures and we'll help you thru it. shouldn't be hard...

i had the same issue, the side headshield needs to be taken off. just look closely, there has to be a screw holding the exhaust in. the one i failed to take off was at the top near the seat. once you take it out, it pulls out very easy, dont force it.

If the bolt doesn't hold the exhaust on, then no, you don't need to take it off. But, when you take off an exhaust, it doesn't just fall out. You need to manhandle it a little to get it off most of the time. If you are going upmarket, you probably don't want the heat shield anyway, so I'd suggest giving it the old college try...

Thanks for driving that hybrid...and saving all the gas for me!

take a dremel and cut a slot across that stripped hex (if you can get to it that is)

Use a flat head screw driver (or a flat bit attachment to a ratchet) and take that sucker off.

I wouldnt be able to sleep at night, knowing its there. lol
