Crap. I've been wondering why my bike pops and backfires...couldn't find a reason. Am getting ready to change tires and was looking back up under there trying to figure out why it sounded like crap.... Pipe is sheared about an inch in front of the vertical head. I think I did it when I was wrestling the old exhaust off and putting the QD on...despite spraying joints with WD-40.

We've got a new pipe coming...anything else to worry about? I was riding it a few weeks like that!

The rear cylinder manifold bolts if they have never been removed before from factory, can be a bitch to get out. Be careful when doing it or it could get real expensive real fast. If the crack is downstream of the manifold joint(after the spring) you're probably ok.
