ok guys random question i imagine i will get a couple of fast respones and that is kinda what i am looking for... it has been a while since i have been on here being in the military makes it alittle pain. so in the past 6 months i have went thru the rear exhaust down pipe mid pipe exhaust pipe whatever you want to call it i have went thru those gaskets 3 times now and i am tired of replacing them. i have found out the the top gasket isnt the problem it is the lower gasket. my question is can i weld the lower attachment point on the pipe or even both and it be efficent still. i havent even put 1000k on the gaskets since the last change. i took it on a moutain ride and i noticed it when i started the bike up at the pizza factory that it was leaking again. but being that my wife is getting ready to have our baby figure i would have ample amount of time to tac-weld it into place and and make is a air tight seal on the lower attchment point thus making the upper still able to be removed. good idea bad idea possible not possible what are your guys opinions.
