exhaust leak won't do much damage. Been riding around for three weeks right now, still got to weld it shut.kagraves said:Exhaust leak???
From some searching that seems to be likely, can it do damage if I ride it?
I see some exhaust gases escape from the engine/header intersection every once and a while, but why all of a sudden the noise...
Inspect for black carbon deposit spots on the exhaust or areas close to it. In the neighbourhood of the hole you should see a black spot if you've driven it around for a while.
