The radiator has about 3 bolts holding it intact take them off and move it out of the way make sure u use some wd40 or some lube for the bolts from the headers I've seen ppl break them off

remove it! It doesnt have to come all the way out. let it hang forward and out of the way.Its a lot easier than you trying to install with it in the way. I recommend anti seize when you put the header bolts back in

WD 40 is not very good as a penetration oil. Once they break lose they should back right out. Be careful not to cross thread them when re installing them. If you are careful you can reuse the exhaust gaskets if you don't have new ones. That job is pretty easy if you have a lift. It sucks to have to lay on the floor.

It just depends how'old the bike is or, how rusted bolts are, in my bike removing the tail pipe was a breeze
