As some of you may know i am trying to getmy old ZR back on the road and i am abit stuck with the cat-to-midpipe joint bolts. They are properly stuck and rusty and it doesn't help that they are tough to reach. Have been putting in plenty of lube but to no avail.
Do I have to apply force from both sides to be able to release the bolts?

If they are rust welded then you might need to cuf them off.
argh I hope not, I will give them a lube treatment now for the next 7 days, if that doesn't help I will try heat / a blow torch. Out of curiosity, how do you cut them off, I mean what's the exact where you cut off. Might seem like a stupid question but my knowledge is still very limited in that regard.
