Question on removing 93 900rr midpipe
So I'm trying to fix my new to me blade.. the previous owner chopped off the exhaust at the mid pipe and put on a chrome tip. Sounds like a harley and is a little lopey/choppy.
I just got myself a nice can and mid-pipe and I just went at trying to get the mid pipe off. From what I can see, there are no more springs attached, nor are there welds or screws that I can see... the mid pipe is really rusted on there. I tried to peel a bit of the rusted chunk off, but I'm having no luck separating the mid pipe section. Is there any other bolt or piece holding it on? I'm actually thinking of either cutting it apart some more to peel it off. OR, which I'm a little happier trying to do is cut a few lines in the tip, compressing it a little bit and slipping on the mid-pipe.
Any help or comments would be great! I looked at a repair manual and I don't see anything other than the two springs that are supposed to hold it on at that point.
