Here's the wrench I told you about.  It needed to reach up and then over to the left to get at the nut securely, and folding it over was easier on the shank than just cranking it to the left. :excuseme:

Lol nice, that's not what I pictured. I will probably just leave the cover how it is. I'm surprised it's not already stripped being an older bike, but she's in decent shape just have to stop forgetting not to crank everything so tight it's a big problem I have. Maybe I'll get an after market header one day but it's just not on the top of the list.
