Spray some PB Blaster on the joint and let it soak in for a few minutes, then tap it with a rubber hammer.

I agree blast it with some penetrating spray tap it with a dead blow.if that dosent work torch it.Any way the heat helps the oil move into the metal.

Cool, glad you got it loose! So were the D&D's just too loud?

Pipes can be very loud and sound great, or can sound terrible and just be loud and annoying. I've read that D&D's are among the louder pipes out there, haven't heard any in person.

not too loud just wanted a change. Can hear how smooth the engine and tranny really is and I like for a change. I'll see how long it takes to get tired of the quiet.

Three of the used bikes we've had came with D&D: a 929, Bandit, and cbr1100. I did not like the sound of any of them. The Yoshimura in comparison sounds like music.

glad to see you got that off. I have two brothers on mine and i enjoy them every time i turn her on.Love those pipes.What i am not sure about is the smooth transmission It klunks pretty hard into first gear the rest are good but first is like dropping a rock.

Soooo...sounds like no interest in selling it? I've been wanting some different pipes, but don't like the price of something that likely won't increase performance by more than a percent or 3. If the price is right though, I'd probably bite!
