Does anybody else get the irony of a fella called Trotter Independent Trading, enquiring about a bit of dodgy business ?
Maybe it's been already mentioned.

Update, exhausts arrived yesterday

Still no email stating they shipped or tracking from the seller but I suppose that doesnít matter now.

Went to fit them this evening but arenít the bolts that connect the OEM silencers to the pipes completely seized. Heat, moisture and shite over the last 6 years

Reckon it may be a job for a pro. I donít have the tools or patience. Canít wait to get them on though

Start oiling them everyday - let it seep in and give it a go in a week

if they are the band type exhaust clamp, then just run a grinder cutting disc across the band to remove them - I had to do this when de-catting the beemer last year

Iím thinking cutting them off is the best thing, I just donít have a grinder unfortunately so will probably end up in a shop. All good

Cheers for the advise lads

Get yourself a nut splitter, had to do it several times with KTMs, just don't over do it or you'll damage the stud

Ah shit, thought you meant the header bolts
