Can this be JB Welded?

Not sure what part of the exhaust pipe this is called but I'll call it a flange or cap until I'm corrected. Anyway, grounded a hole in it and wonder if I can JB Weld the hole closed. JB Weld is rated to 500 degrees and I'm not sure if this part of the pipe gets that hot. I saw a pipe at the track that looked like this exact spot had been coved with JB Weld but of course I didn't think to stop and ask...

Thanks, Kevin.

probably will not last, but it's worth a try. I radiator shop may be able to braze over it for a few bucks, it's aluminium right.

Go on the R6 forum and I'm sure you'll find that stock exhaust for dirt cheap. It'll problably cost you the same or cheaper than having a welder fill that in for you. I wouldn't JB weld that though.

If JB weld doesn't work, duct tape always works for me.

You could JB weld that bitch. It mite take about 3 tubes though. \

Use bazooka bubble gum, it works like a champ...

Hmm, three tubes...I guess my next idea of forming a complete pipe out of JBW is out of the question

I'll probably search for another stock pipe on ebay or the R6 forum like suggested. For now I have a track day on 9/8 and was hoping to temp fix it until I have more time to deal with it.
