I cut the mounting tab off and relocated it. You can mig weld stainless, but if the pipe is titainium it will have to be tig welded. You could take it to weld shop and get it done, should not be very expensive.
What is your starting drill, when cold?? I usually pull the choke and crack the throttle 3 times. My bike will start on the first kick, just about every time, if I do this routine, when the bike is cold.
