Thanks man I'll dig into that , after looking at the pipe, the muffler is fine and it's just broke at the Y. So I'm just going to look for a new head pipe and keep the stock kerker on it , seem like a cheaper option?

The Kerker is the best performance pipe you can find for that bike. Weld it, and keep rolling.

Yeah i would weld it and keep rolling like Mr.Wright said...if shipping wasnt so damn high i would fix those for you for nothing but shipping eat you alive im sure to Tennessee and back...im sure you find a good tig welder around there to fix them cheaper than you can send them to me...your not going to find a better performing exhaust than the kerker....and honestly to me not a better sounding pipe than kerker

Not an excuse. I'll bring the Kirker I have on the wall, and let you borrow it while were down there. We might even be able to come up with a welder, and fix you up.
What kind of a welder do I need? I have actually been looking at them, I made my own weight brackets and ballast boxes for my tractors and this would come in very very handy.

Hey, I'm coming and its about 1150 directly and more than that the way I go. Last yr was over 1300 to get there for me and Minuteman did 1600 (albeit with a business meeting layover on the way).
Just do about 300 a day and you'll be fine and there in no time!

There has to be some way to do it.

Thank Knothead, the new headpipe pipe went on easy peasy. I also cut off the baffle, think I'll make a bird feeder out of it. I really like the tone of the bike without a muffler on it , you can have loud but without tone it's just loud. I look like an old dork clean shaven, but I'm happy and free!

You look happy, that’s what matters.
What Diameter is that baffle? I wouldn’t mind having it to play around with if you don’t want it
