View Full Version : small problem
10-17-2001, 06:22 PM
today when i was driving the nr i managed to break the stinger off my exaust, now this is no real big problem. but it's alot louder ( it's amazing how much that muffels it ), so i was wondering if i could fix it. maybe with some jb weld or something along that line. any help would be great. thanks

What exactly broke? The header or the pipe?

it was the stinger of the pipe ( tube were the exaust exits the pipe ).

is the pipe aluminum or steel, mine is nickle plated steel i think, so id weld mine if that happened. jb weld will work too

i think the pipe is aluminum, it's the trinity pipe.

whoops, I thought you meant the 360 mip stinger pipe like i have,
you could also try tig welding, I think a peson can weld aluminum with that, but can you get to such equiptment?

yes i do have access to a welder that can weld on aluminum. so i'll try welding it back on, thanks for the help.

JB weld does not work for aluminum pipes(known from experience). So either weld it or just get a new one.
No JB will not hold on the exhaust system. The resin in JB will not let it hold a bond on an aluminum exhaust system due to the heat.
Tig welding using an aluminum filler rod will be the best way to fix it.
How did the exhaust get broken? Crash, Defect??
If it just cracked due to a defect get in touch with Trinity and check on their replacement/return policy.
