I dutifully tried to perform this as part of my 9,000 mi. maintenance, but the cap screws attaching the exhaust pipe to the engine seem impossible to get a straight shot at except for one. Anyone have any hints for doing this tightening without stripping out the cap screws?

Paul, you could try a set of ball end Hex wrench's. You can not crank 100's of pounds on them but for a small bolt they work fine. They come in SAE and Metric. Example below of SAE.

removing the exhaust bolts is pretty easy, nothing to it... just need the right tools...

all you need is a good 6mm hex socket with an extension bar.

you will have to lay down on the floor to reach those bolts if the bike is not elevated.

good luck

I would recommend this set from HF, it has a 12 mm that you can use if you ever remove the front wheel and a 17mm if you decide to service your forks

-- HF Metric Socket Set

I used ball end metric sockets. and did not remove the tupperware when changing my pipes out.
