The passenger side head pipe has a larger size pipe slipped over it and welded on only one side? Is this a factory heat shield slid over the smaller head pipe and placed where is runs by the clutch cover? This would explain why it is welded only on one side, the side that's not welded is somewhat mobile meaning I can move it around a little up and down, but when I try to twist it's a no go. If it does have exhaust moving through it should I put a weld around it so it doesn't leak? Picture 009.jpg Picture 013.jpg
