how to remove akrapovic DB killer?

Hey

just got my akrapovic exhuast for the 1199, and trying to remove the DB killer before it gets installed. does anyone know how to remove it?

I loosen the screw and then try to pull it out but it doesn't seems to move?

I don't want to damage anything so was hoping someone had done it already and could give me some tips?

I believe you have to remove the screw completely. be sure that it doesn't fall into the silencer...its a pain to get out once it drops in there (I may or may not know from experience).

It's not moving because you're not pulling hard enough. It's pretty snug so you have to move it around while trying to pull it out. It's only held in place by that one screw.

Unnecessary for any of that. I did it with some force and my hands. No wd40, pliers, etc.

Go outside and scream at the top of your lungs. Come back inside and pull that SOB out! Anyway, that's what I do.

I removed them last night. First one after completely removing the screw came out without a problem - the other took some force using pliers.

Should just tackle the job yourself. No better way to get to know your bike. Be prepared to spend many hours if you do try though. Saved myself over $500.
