I had that problem as well. I pulled it straight down and towards the rear wheel at the same time. You might have to wiggle it a bit. I hope this helps.

If I leave a place no better than it was when I came, then I have never been there.

Don't forget, if you do drop the header you will need 3 of the copper "O" ring seals to put the header back in place.

No question A.T.G.A.T.T. (Even when it's stinking hot!!)
And if it's too stinking hot to gear up, it's too stinking hot to ride.

If your not man enough to take the lead, stop complaining from behind.

I SURVIVED NASSIR 9.... barely.

I had to remove the engine mount bolt and the two fame bolts behind the kickstand, then lightly pry the frame over to remove the shifter on my 99' 1500SE, and I bent the first oil seal and had to get another hard to drive the seal in straight with the exhaust in the way but its possible. If u try this get about 2 or three seals before u start, their only bout 2 dollars just in-case u ruin one like I did.
