    Went out for a ride today and my exhaust studs on my front just sheard off just infront of the flange. Is this something easy to replace? and what tools will I need? thanks in advance for your help.

    I would soak what's left in "PB Blaster" overnight and then some. It would be nice to try and not snap off what little you have left. I would also hit the threaded area with a heat gun when you attempt to take out the stud. Heat REALLY does help.
