Exhaust help please

Exhaust help please was created by rayz_x
The fitting welded to my exhaust mid section has broken off and I was going to replace it. I asked the Suzuki dealer and they want £256.00. It's just a straight through pipe with a few bends. They are on e-bay for £29 to about £45 but difficult to tell quality. I may ask Suzuki what the supply only price is.

I put a new back box on recently and the bolts for that go straight through so no problem that end. What is the front end flexible joint like? Is that a separate part to buy if it needs replacing? Is it welded to either the Cat end or the rear pipe section?

Any advice or recommendations appreciated.

The joints are welded the one to cat has special bolts with springs
And a wire mesh conical thing that allows for movement and sealing

Go for the Ebay ones, just the same but a fraction of the price

One word of caution however, the wire mesh sealing ring on most Ebay ones is the wrong size (difficult to seal) either buy the proper one from Suzuki or re-use the old one.
