A weld is fine Taff but check that the LH exhaust tab bracket (Part#65619-98) is not on the way to breaking point as well. (fig #18) below.

Another option is to remove the pipe going out to the LHS altogether and just run a 2 into 1. Saves about 30lb in weight and bike will run just as well.

If thats a vibration crack, surely any replacement wouldnt put up with your "enthusiatic riding style" either, is it worth it to have the twin pipes ???

lose brackets/putting exhaust on wrong, lose exhausts, lose engine mounts
any excuse but "its a bad design by moco"

Weld it up with a bracing piece in there, should do the trick. Worked on my mates one.

Got it off, decided against riding it the 40-odd miles to me welder mate, i never had full confidence it'd make it, to the end of our road.
Taken it right off and took it local instead;
