exhaust falling off!!

I noticed today that my exhaust was sagging below the tail pretty badly. I looked up under the tail and apparently the bolt that held it up to the tail has dissappeared. Unless anyone has a suggestion, I can't see anyway of replacing it without removing the tail section (which I would rather not have to do since I have little to no time). Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

P.S. Anyone know exactly what size bolt I need? If the tail needs to be removed I may just get an aftermarket exhaust and do it all at one time.

Good example of why people should check for tightness periodically. Things do come loose. You can either go to Ace Hardware and get you a bolt that fits for a couple of bucks or buy an aftermarket like you said. But either way you're going to have to take the tail off. I don't think you will be able to get to the bolt with it on. That's by memory.

you can put on the exhaust or exhaust bolt with the tail still on. I did it when I installed my Leo. It's just a little of a tight squeeze for ur hands

i dunno if you'll be able to get it on with the stock exhaust tho, because it sits a-lot higher up and is wider...

Thread lock, and like everybody on here says...TAKE YOUR TIME. It shouldnt matter if it takes 2 hours to take the tail off...do it and be patient. Just grab some new bolts, lock tight, a beer or wine, some scented candles, your favorite Barry Manilow album, and work it out with the bike. You two will still be friends in the end...friends with benefits, that is.:love10:

The tail came off in about five minutes. It took a few more mintures to get it back on, but no big deal. I don't know why I was under the impression it was more difficult than that. Thanks for the wake up call.
