So I did the thing most fear of I dropped my bike at near a stop. Good thing not much damage happened but did scrap my exhaust. So i want to remove and repaint but am running into a few concerns. I have no idea where to start! I see a few allen screw but that didnt help so once again does any one have any experience taking of the exhaust shields? Do I have to take the entire exhaust to do so?

page 5-2 of the service manual shows the break down. also page 3-16 is how to check it which shows the break down but looks like your going to have to remove the exhaust system to get the heat shields off

If you just damaged the rear muffler section, You can remove that in one piece by removing
a few bolts. Then you can disassemble that section for painting. I went through this when the
bike was new since the dealer dropped it during delivery. Try and get a new gasket to the head
pipe when you reassemble to avoid leaks.

FYI, expect it to be a pain in the ass. I took my entire exhaust off and started attempting to remove the shields... but as soon as you get a screw loose they bend away, as if under tension, from the mounting holes making them a SOB to get back in place.
