Hey Roman
Thanks for that ill just go and bang my head for a while as usual im wrong
with a big W. Just to let you know my exhaust has sprung a leak at the weld
joint just at the flexy joint under the wheel arch. I bought a bandage but I
think I sould be p----- in the wind, maybe it could be welded or not, its
seems its getting closer to another exhaust for me. I thought or was waiting
for it to go at the rear end first but not there. So with my luck the
complete weld will break and wow what a noise ill have then.

Hi John,
I've had that same 'at the flexi bit' leak appear in the past, as have
most cruiser owners I think. From my own experience at least, I'd say
not to mess about with it and just replace the front section of the
exhaust. They are fairly cheap from Milner and the hassle of keeping
trying to fix it will ruin your life.
Cheers,
Andy

I've had a front pipe go where you describe on both our LCs John. On the
94 I left it till I could see daylight through the pipe most of the way
around! No danger of it falling off, both sides of it are extremely well
supported, it just gets a little raspy but I was amazed at how little
effect it had on volume until it became two separate pipes :)
Best regards,
Jon.

Mine's on the way out as well, it hisses a bit and the turbo spools up
pretty well, but guess I will have to replace it when the MOT is up
next month.
