Broken header studs need help??

Just got back from a day ride and I was washing the Rhino, I started it to move it back into the garage and it sounded louder than normal. Upon inspection I found that both studs on the header pipe that goes into the head have sheared off. I have the Gibson full exhaust. Could this be the issue putting too much strain on the studs? How do I go about getting these out and replaced. It looks like there won't be enough room to get my drill motor in there with an easy out. Should I just leave this one to the dealer? Any other suggestions would be appreciated. Thanks

Justin

buy a angle drill and use your easy out. don't take it to a dealer, they'll burn you.

I have never had to use the easy out before. Will it drill into the bolt then just back it out? What are these bolts called? I'm sure I will have to order them from the dealer. Thanks for the help. I've never tackled anything like this before.

To use and easy out, you have to drill a hole in the center of the stud and then with a hammer... drive an easy out into that hole. Using a tee handle or cresent wrench you turn the easy out counter clockwise, which in turn grips the stud with it's opposite rotating flutes.

The problem I see with the exhaust header studs is that they are small... not alot of meat, and the size of easy out that you would need to get in there would be even smaller... I can just see it snapping right off in there while your trying to back it out.

Tough call if you have never done something like this before...

Should be ok for you next trip, you just might get alot of backfiring though. I found the two bottom nuts had backed out on mine, and who knows how long I ran it that way. Didn't find it that way till I washed it one day...



NIIICE!

It will run lean, get hot, possibly detonate and trash the rod. Fix it.

Gibson exhaust have done this from the get go. My advice after breaking four of them, take it to a shop have them get it out don't use an easy out. The name is very deceptive! Then do your self a favor a get rid of the Gibson exhaust, you will break more I guarantee it.
