Hello,

Sorry if this a dumb or obvious question, but I am no mechanic...

I have a 2012 adv model 650 Vstrom. I bought a B&B Offroad skid plate for the bike, and need to mount the plate to an area where my center stand is, but don't have access to removing\adding the bolts because my exhaust pipe runs in the way and will need to drop my exhaust make the fitting....But can't figure out how to access the header in the rear to drop the exhaust.

How or what is the best way to access the header in the rear to unmount it?

Thx in advance!

Look at drivers side(left) in front of your rear shock

I know my SV had a clamp on it where the rear header connects to the rest of the exhaust. Much easier to loosen that than to try to get at the bolts in the head.
