The exhaust pipe is normally spring mounted to the cylinder head and bolted to the frame.. The spring(s) may be missing and ther pipe held in place only by one or two bolts to the frame. If the frame bolts are removed and the springs are removed and the pipe seems stuck then that is exactly what is wrong. The pipie IS stuck. Just get a medium to large rubber mallet and hit the pipe away from the engine at the bend just outside the cylinder head. Carbon and or dirt have built upat the fitting and are holding the pipe in place. Why are you removing the engine? tombones49@gmail.com.

loud sound is attractive to only the rider and will attract the ire of the neighbours and the law
another point , if the manufacturers thought that a modified muffler was good for the engine , the loud mufflers would be already fitted but as the design of the mufflers also includes economy and engine life that means that a balance of economy , engine reliability and noise is struck in the factory

Difficulty starting. When it does start it will only run for a short time at a slow speed before stopping.

If the Exhaust Port and Muffler are Clear, then
Check the Carburetors Metering Needle Valve.
If the Metering Valve Plunger (on the Carburetor Metering Jet Diaphram) is Set too Close to the Needle Valve Actuator Arm, then you will have this Problem.
I Require the OEM and Model Numbers Off the Carburetor to be of Better Assistance to you.
