infamous hole in exhaust at the weld spot
hey guys been trying to trace down a leak in the 97xp i just purchased
finally found that the weld is pretty much blown out on the bottom of the upper exhaust pipe.
I have few questions...newb ones at that....
the 96xp exhaust will bolt right up to 97xps correct? (besides color ha)
can that hole be easily re welded or any other easy fix? (I have access to tig/mig)
this one looks good, might buy this if no ideas turn up...

Easily welded, see my attached photo.
I can get this done for you for probably $20 if you want to pay shipping to and from Ohio.

i assume this happens because previous owners most likely never fired ski after pulling it outta water to remove all water in the system....

Its a VERY common issue, its a low spot that traps water.
Mine was tig welded.
