Down Pipe

Yesterday I noticed while driving that my bike is louder. This morning I got up and started inspections. It is seen all exhaust pipes and noticed the missing piece of pipe. missing around 5 "upper part of the pipe.

That's such a close up, I cant tell where on the header that is. Seems you'll be looking for another header, as I'm betting if you unwrap the rest, you will find more integrity issues. Don't use exhaust wrap anymore. That's what happens eventually...

I hope you can weld it. I suspect you'll have more integrity issues once you get all the wrap off.
