    Exhaust hanger removal

    I recently bought a set of Kart-Boy exhaust hangers to keep my Borla Hush exhaust more secure. I had no problems with 3 of the hangers. I was unable to remove one of the back hangers on the drivers side by the muffler. A bolt goes through the top of the hanger, so you cannot slip it off like the others. The bolt seems to be welded on. I applied lots of liquid wrench and even heated up the bolt a little with a propane torch. When I apply alot of force on the bolt it begins to bend the piece of metal above where the bolt attaches. Has anyone else had problems removing this bolt/hanger?

    The side I am trying to remove is on the driver's side with the nut end. The other side is the bolt head side. I will try that side and see what happens.

    the "nut" is welded onto the hanger. try the otherside and it should come out just fine

    You were absolutely right. The bolt came right out. The metal sleeve fit right into the kartboy hanger. The only problem I had was alignment with the bolt and nut...I had to jack up my muffler a little for them to line up. Thanks CertainPhate. No more clanks will be heard in hard cornering.
