You need a 6'4" frame, 220lbs, feed it good and lubricate it with the finest ales you can find, off go the bolts...

I used about a bottle of Liquid Wrench and let them soak for about 15 minutes. It was still REAL hard to get them off, but it just took a lot of elbow grease. Be careful of that muffler heat shield too...I cut my hand on it. Good luck!
