Man the heat trick is one I learned this past weekend and will forever remember.

I was trying to force my new exhaust pipe onto the header pipe and the thing would just not go on all the way.

Like a dumbass I kept trying for about 5 mintues when I realized I was going to rip the header off the bike or tear my arm off.

So I started it up and let it run for a few minutes, just enough to get the pipes warm.

Pipes slid right together no problemo after that, did even have to try.
