87 gl 1200I muffler rusted

Postby ronscycle1. » Fri Aug 30, 2013 9:05 pm



took my rear tire off and noticed the muffler had rusted at the rear by the seam on the canister that is connected between the pipes right in front of rear tire , is there a way to fix with out taking them off and have welded, like maybe some type of muffler sealer or jb weld ?

Welding is really going to be the best bet - but if you see the seam rusted, chances are the rust is going to extend on the inside more than you can see. There might not be enough left to weld.
