How did you get the header nuts out?  I've got to take my exhaust off to get a crack repaired and want to do it at home.  However, if I get it wrong then I've no way of getting it to the garage.

Soaked with a penetrating oil from memory.  Left for a bit, tightened, then loosened and removed. 
If in doubt then you might need someone with a range of tools.

Thank you, Triumph wanted to replace it (700!!!).  I'm going to take it off and get the crack welded.

Tempting....

When you removed the cat did you have the bike re-mapped or was it okay?

No remap needed.  Worked fine with the standard tune.

I did subsequently remove the lamda sensor and switched it off in tuneecu.  This makes it run a little richer.  Every check of sparks since have a nice colour - not lean and not rich.
