Exhaust Tip Removal

Trying to dive in here - and it seems some have said there is a clamp to remove the 4 tips - nothing on mine with the stock exhaust and black comp tips.

Am I supposed to just whack these with a piece of wood and a mallet or is there some other process for the M6?

From what I was told, it's a bit of twist and pull.
I would assume some WD-40 behind each tip and wait 5-10 minutes would help.

What did you end up getting?

I just took my rubber mallet and hit it from behind (TWSS) and they popped off. They are basically pressure fitted on.

Easiest way I've found is spray some WD40 in, let it dwell for a couple of minutes, and then pull with a pair of gloves on.
