    701 exhaust leak

    96 wv 701, Found today that I have what looks like an exhaust leak, in the exhaust chamber. Advice on best way to repair? Is it likely one of the seals on either end or is the chamber possibly cracked? I've read that an exhaust leak could be feeding carbs bad air, I do get some hesitation at WOT, I imagine that could be related?

    vid of it leaking while at idle,


    Thanks

    Only thing to do with that is pull the exhaust chamber to check/repair it. Just remove the chamber to head mounts, then 2 bolts from chamber to cylinders, then 4 bolts from pipe to exhaust manifold. Remove cooling hoses and overtemp sensor and, after rocking it back and forth a bit, pull the whole pipe out.
