I have the 49cc 'Ghost Racer' 4-stroke, and I am looking to create my own exhaust system on it- the problem is the studs mounted in the head for the existing system... they are 2" long!!! I tried the standard vice grip approach, but couldn't get anything to move without what I consider excessive force. They unscrew, right?

Yes they unscrew...maybe fire up engine and get studs hot then unscrew.
