These are in the end caps of two HMF mufflers. They were small allen openings but have been stripped out. Inside both mufflers are silencers that are broken but have a flange holding them by the end caps. Got to get those caps off, 3 screws in each one. Any ideas?

Thanks

If you can get a dremel in there to grind a slot to put a flat head screwdriver that is how I usually do it.

You can try driving the next size larger TORX bit into the allen head. Torx drive measurement is based on metric so it's usually an in between size to standard fasteners. the combination of impact and the 6 cutting edges will usually bring them out without having to grind near chrome or paint

vice grips. if you confident there not rusted you can just take the heads off. they should spin out easy once the cap is off unless the threads are rusted.

Drill the heads off, remove the cap and then use some vise-grips on what&#39;s left sticking out.

Spray some PB Blaster or other penetrating oil on them and let them set overnight before trying anything else. This usually helps a lot!

go buy a reverse drill bit.

they can usually grab the screw and take it out.

Definatly PB lube it. or even easier is a propane torch

An ole trick from a veteran rider is to warm the engine and pipe by taking a nice long ride. Park in the garage and take the screws out. Screws on the muffler are usually much easier to take out when warmed up.

Another good old trick for messed up bolt heads or screw heads,is to apply some valve grinding compound on the head. It will help the socket or any other driver grip better then you could ever believe.

Just buy some new exhaust. It&#39;s the easiest solution.
