I'm thinking of removing the passenger pegs. The left side seems straight forward. The right side doesn't have much room and would require removal of the muffler.

I saw this thread from 2019 but they were not specific with how to remove the muffler. Do I need to just remove the 3 bolts in the attached picture (see red arrows) and then move the muffler aside to get access to the two bolts on the right side passenger peg mount? It sounds a little too simple and might bend something causing some leak in a seal.

Thanks in advance,
Dennis

No Dennis, you need to unfasten the muffler from the inlet pipe.
If you will PM me your email address I will try to send you some pictures/instructions from a tech manual.

And do it with warm pipes. Take it to the ride, stop and wait a bit for the pipes to cool down to "very warm". Not burning hot because you'll burn your hands and not cold because you'll have diffulty separating the pipes.

Interesting. I didn't know this. I've done a few muffler swaps on a few bikes (2010 FJR and 2008 FZ6) and I didn't notice much difficulty. I'm guess expansion with a little heat helps loosen things.
