    Hey guys, I have a question. I just bought a pair of used Yoshi RS 3 bolt ons. They came with the mid pipe attached. When I was removing the Yoshi cans from the mid pipe the lowest bolt of the three would not budge. The other two came of with no problem. I finally got it a little loose but it was hard turning it. Then my fear came true, broke the head off! Same thing happened with the other can!, same bolt! I installed them and really tightened the two bolts. Now I'm only running two bolts on each can, I checked for leaks and didn't find any, they sound good! Will it be ok only running the two bolts? Or will I have problems later?

    There are multiple ways to remove a broken bolt. I'd replace it.

    Yeah, I decided to drill it out and put a new bolt.
