Uninstall/Install exhaust and wrenches
I've heard and now learned for my self this pm that there is that lower front nut that's hard to reach. After a bit of research, what I've come up with to use is either a jointed 12mm socket or a crows foot. I'm thinking the jointed socket. Any thoughts.
I think the jointed socket will lend itself better when torquing it back. I'm trying to visualize this thing and the wrench in that tight spot and can't imagine how it will work.....but will find out.
I plan on not installing the new exhaust for a time. I thot while the pipes are off, I'd take the rear wheel off for sanding and new tire, remount and then mount the exhaust. I don't want to leave the ports open, so I'm thinking of carefully pushing rags in the ports, not deep of course but deep enough. Any other ideas. I don't know if there's surface enough to put duct tape over the hole instead of putting something in it. Would have to be careful it's a clean rag.
2006 1300C is what I'm working on........
