    I'm not sure if your talking about the flexible steel hose I'm picturing. Tin light gauge stuff. I have tried jb weld and it burned off the first ride. If it is what I am picturing. I would try A rap of tiger exhaust repair tape from the auto parts store to make a seal and hose clamps to hold the hose on there.

    Just be careful, if the muffler comes off at high speed and goes under your wheel you may not like it. I took the fake catalytic converter and baffles out of my muffler and put two chore boys (copper wool scrubbers) in to cut the sound. The exhaust breaths better and gave me some more speed with little more noise. If your goal is just to keep the sound down fiberglass wrap will cut out some sound also clamp the muffler to the frame to keep vibbration down. There are some good posts about stelfing a MB.

    I loosely packed steel wool arround my baffle. Works great, I can hear the motor noise instead of the exaust now!
