Mori Waki Exhaust repair

"There are two types of riders. Those that are going down and those that have been down."

Well I guess I just transitioned. I was driving home the other evening and was entering my apartment complex when SLAM! down I went. I was only going about 2-3 mph but it was enough to do a little damage to both the bike and myself (minor). There was a build up of gravel on the road entering my complex from the chip and seal job they did a few months ago, but they never came and cleaned off the excess gravel afterwards. I have noticed it before because even my truck tires slip on it from time to time. Normally I just swing the turn wide in the opposite lane and come in perpendicular to the road edge (not a busy street, isn't even striped) and dodge the loose gravel piles. But on this evening there was some on coming traffic and it was just getting dark enough that I could not tell where the gravel build up was, so I came in at about a 45 and with the gravel I so conveniently found, that was enough to bring us down.

Here is my question. I have a high mount Mori Waki Zero Titanium exhaust and the lay down scratched up the pipes and a small bit of one of the bands on the end of the can. I tried to get on Mori's site and I could not find a parts page or even the exhaust for that matter. It does not seem to be too user friendly. The guy I bought the bike from told me you can take the cans apart and rebuild them (re-skin, packing, etc.). Does anyone know where I can find information or parts for this? Also trying to repair the scratches on the pipe. With its tempered look it does not seem like I could sand and buff it out without changing the color and making it more noticeable. Its just scratched and not crimped to restrict flow or anything. My bike is relatively flawless and i hope to bring her back to her glory in aesthetics.

Thanks for any help guys.

Thanks!

Yeah I don't know about the pipes either. Maybe I will try and find someone that has this set up on a track bike or something that doesn't mind the nicks and see if they would be willing to trade the pipe plus some cash.
