V vibration does funny things obviously there is a lot of weight on it and the weld had a weakness somewhere and it worked its way right off I had the same problems with pipes I had a really good at MLM pipe and the flange broke clean off it was due to high vibration I would suggest that in your next incarnation you put some rubber bushings on the motor so it doesn't vibrate so violently I would also check the balance of your clutch Bell and such

I’d check your cylinder/top end because it may have sucked some metal in there

good call

Another thought,

Get a snug fitting hose and two hose clamps to mend it back together. The hose will flex enough to prevent it from breaking again.

Yeah the intake setup on my Hobbit has been a random piece of radiator hose going from the Malossi 21mm PHBG intake to my carb for 3 years and it hasn't failed me yet.

That looks like a bad weld, no penetration. contact who you got it from about this and send them the pictures. good luck
