    Hey guys, I have a Daytona 675R 2012 and I'm trying to remove the after-market exhaust so I can put on the OEM version.

    The problem is, I was able to get everything detached EXCEPT for the exhaust pipe as seen in the attached pictures. I tried pulling as hard as I can but I can't seem to get the dang thing off. Any ideas on how I can separate these two pieces? I've removed the ring around it but that didn't seem to make a difference.

    Squirt some penetrating oil in the gaps, try prising them open a bit or a bit of heat. Twist and pull

    If it’s that hard to remove it much the worth removing the whole pipe from the bike. If you start twisting and it’s still attached at the to the exhaust port, it might be possible to bugger something important.

    As mentioned a good LONG soak with penetration oil, heat and ‘shock’ movements to twist/pull it loose - far more likely to jar it free like that. Gradual pressure is your enemy.

    It looks like there is a bracket supporting the end of the collector pipes so I doubt it would trouble the exhaust port connection by twisting and pulling. I’d try the penetrating oil first then heat the part you want to remove and maybe use some freeze spray on the collector to contract it.

    Looks like soaking it in some penetrating oil and twisting it back and forth did the trick, thanks everyone!
