How Do You Get The Front Header Pipe Off

Getting ready to change my Water Pump Seal and Shaft as PM on my 2007 990ADV. How do you get the front header pipe out? I thought it should come straight out, no! I took the screws off the heat shield and could not get the shield out! Which way do you turn the thing to get it out? I also noticed that there was one washer behind the plate holding the headed pipe in, should there be one on each side? I have had this moto since it had 4,900 miles and I don't think the header pipe has ever been off. The markings on the plate make it clear that there was only one washer. Thanks!
