Once again I must call on the members knowledge.
I wanted to remove my srads exhaust system to spray the headers. Should be easy right,, but out of the 8 screws that hold the headers onto the bike, 2 came off and 6 rounded. I cant for the life of me get them off.. any tips greatly appreciated. would heating the bolts with a blowtorch work??

Are they allen head? You could try JB Weld in the allen hole and leave a wrench in it while it sets and see if that will give it more bit. It has worked for me a few times.

Heating the area around the bolt might work. The block will expand faster than the steel bolt.
