    Head Pipe Ass'y Leaking

    This seems to be leaking. Leaks from a round welded like spot on the front underneath. Any way to fix this? If not how available are they used?

    Fun Fun Fun.

    Summers coming and have to get the wife's toy fixed.

    Thanks Gary

    Did 2 this week on different Skis. We remove the Pipe and take it to a Fabrication shop and the cut circles in aluminum plate and weld caps over those spots. Common problem here In Cocoa Florida. Jb Weld doesn't last to long and when it falls out you may not notice till the engine runs funny. On some skis it can mean expensive problems

    pest is absolutely right. i just never did it. i dont mean to screw anyone over. never even thought about the quick steel when i sold it honestly. the quick steel help up fine though. is leaps and bounds stronger and more durable that jb weld in my experience.

    The spot that is leaking looks like a welded port. After cleaning it up with a wire brush it is all perforated within the welded circle. Looks like I should be able to get a patch weld right over the same place.

    Magnet doesn't stick so I suspect it is aluminum????

    I used to make a patch from a plastic cup and JB weld. It would only last a few trips in Salt water and down here some of us ride all year not just a few months

    Yes, it's aluminum. They welded the bungs just like the waterbox partitions, just enough to hold it. Time, vibration, and corrosion eventually gets them. If somone welds it running a bead not trying to be cheap it will never leak again.
