Tips and Suggestions for Stock Header Removal

Hoping someone could help me in identifying what tool is needed to reach the bronze hex nut seen in the pic. I've removed 2/3 and the one I haven't been able to remove is the one I can't get a socket or wrench around due to clearance issues.

Any help is appreciated.

Ducati came with this, which "solved" the clearance issue.

Part of the problem is that I cant get anything inside and around the head of the hex

Losen/remove the reservoir and oilbreather hose for better clearance.

People have been doing it like this for more than 10 years.

Doing what? Grinding down tools to meet to remove 1 pita nut?

The fact that people have been doing it for 10+ years is exactly why I posted the question

If you can't manage that. Take it to your local mechanic or sell the bike.

Goodluck.

I bought a bag of "mini wrenches" that came in a variety of sizes when I changed my exhaust. They were small enough to get in the space without doing anything else.

They came in a small blue bag.

I'm with Dutch on this. Sometimes you have to make a tool. That's just how it is. Deal with it.
You wouldn't last a day as an import car mechanic. I did that for 25+ years and owned $1000s in specialty sockets and wrenches just for oddball fasteners.
The other big thing to understand is that you are doing things out of correct sequence. The header pipes are supposed to be removed once the engine is out. But yes, you have to remove the engine to do that. So you need to make a cheater tool so you can cheat and not remove the engine.

Looking for the easy way out.....

The easy way out is making your own tools. If you look at the overpriced tools you can buy from Ducati you would understand.
For instance their cylinderhead nut wrench / removal tool.

Understood, but what I donít understand is what people feel the need to constantly respond in condescending tones. Every f-ing time, without fail, someone has to add unnecessary commentary. There was a time where we all I had to f-ing learn as Iím doing now. Youíre not superior because you learned how to do something 10 years ago and because Iím just getting to it now. And thereís no need to suggest that I shouldnít own the bike because I found that suggestion to be a little odd. ďImport car mechanicĒ....dude go F yourself. This forum is full a behind the screen and keyboard tough guys. Itís not my first f-ing rodeo. It just so happens that Iíve Iím just now started doing thing myself on my bikes.

Either help someone or donít. This is hardly a community forum - more like a playground for fake tough guys.

Admin, by all means ban my account. I wonít be logging in anymore anyways.

Goddamn today's snowflakes are so tire some, did I enter your safe space after you failed to do a simple search on this forum? Ffs this isn't Facebook. Grow a pair and cowboy the fuck up.
