Why would anti freeze leak from exhaust pipe?

A blown head gasket could allow coolant to enter the combustion chamber from the water jacket. The coolant probably is running out the exhaust on first start-up. More often, you will notice the coolant being pumped out of the overflow as the exhaust gas pressurizes the coolant. You should look for this symptom when the engine warms up. Coolant in the exhaust on start-up and then the coolant overpressure overflow from the expansion tank or radiator happening together is almost sure indication of the head gasket failure.

How do you get the exhaust flaps out of a 2001 Cr125 cylinder?

You first need to remove the side cover at the top of the cylinder on the right side. Once this is removed you will expose the power valves and power valve actuator rod. You will need to remove a cotter pin that holds the actuator rod to the power valve shaft. You can then remove the power valve shaft. The power valves will come out through the exhaust port. It is best to have the cylinder head removed and expansion chamber removed for access. If the shaft wont pull out it is because of carbon build up. You will need to spray the shaft and valves with solvent. The shaft should pull out.

How does the exhaust from your car get in?

Also you should check that the end of the tail pipe should stick out a little past the bumper.
