1999 Honda CBR600 F4

A couple of hitches... (if only the H was a B)

Well, my project bike is going pretty well, but I have a couple o' problems, lets see how the fab-o'-lous people of MotoHouston handle my problems for me!

1. Its time to start getting headers and midepipe sprayed down with some hi-temp paint. BUT... the headers are so low, that spraying them while on the bike would involver laying the can down flat, and we all know, spraypaint don't work like that. I really want to take them off, but my big man hands barely get around the header tubing to un-bolt them, let alone have enough room for my socket wrench. Any suggestions? Anyone taken the headers off a 99 CBR F4?

2. The bolt to undo my rear brake bracket is REALLY stuck in there, and I have already 1/3 stripped it trying to muscle it out. SOAKED the area w/ WD-40 (which is my ultimate answer to EVERYTHING!), and I am all out of ideas. Not even the aide of vice grips could undo that bad boy. I really to change out my rear brake pads before I continue with the chain and putting the rear tire back on.

C'mon people of MH, you haven't failed me yet, I have faith!
So in the mean time, I shall fancy myself a bag of funyuns. lots o' funyuns...
Give it a few years... streetfightin'll catch on...

This is easy. . . .

1) Get a friend with girly hands to do it for you.

2) Pick up a small torch and heat it up, the bolt should come right off.
