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?

Is it bad for the exhaust system if the muffler is removed?? And does it have to be removed by a specialist??

Removing the muffler will not hurt the exhaust system, however it changes the air flow through the engine and will cause it to be lean and stumble on acceleration. As far as who can remove it, you can if you are mechanically inclined and have a good set of hand tools.

I have a 2008 coolsports moped, It still runs but is still messed up, When i get the gas goin it takes off then when it gets to about 23 mph, It slows down like all the way to 10 mph and i cant figure the...

your hole in the muffler is causing your engine to run lean and overheat.
when it bogs down to 10mph it's because your piston is overheating and since metal expands when it heats up, you're scoring up the piston and cylinder walls doing permenant damage to your 'ped. It's a wonder that you haven't seized your engine.
get the exhaust fixed with metal exhaust repair tape, or better, have somebody weld it.
mopedarmy dot org forums are a much better place to ask moped questions. good luck.
