I can try and weld that for you if you want. What is it? Stock puch pipe? I have a few of those too

Chances are highly unlikely you'll get a clean weld on that oily, carbonized 40 year-old pipe.

Let us know what it's for, I may have a non-broken one kicking around, or I could try welding it for you

You need to thoroughly clean all the carbon and crap off of there and don't weld it with a 100% CO gas if you're using a MIG welder.

Personally I would braise it due to the fact that it's going to break again right next to the new weld. it will be something you will be rewilding due to all the carbon mixing with the steel.

Unless you have a rare exhaust, I wouldn't spend more than $10 fixing a stock pipe.

Thanks for the help. I ended up getting a new stock pipe from second stroke. It's about 3 in. longer than the previous one and it makes the bike run a lot louder (obnoxiously). Could this be because of a faulty gasket? (Picture of gasket attached)

That gasket is completely fucked. They really should have mentioned you would need another gasket.
