everything has chrome there is no place to weld with out damaging the chrome.u can try to take it to a muffler shop and see if they can help u out. they can probably weld a new hanger in place and attach it to a spot thats not chromed. ehaust hangers are universal once you heat them up and bend for your need lol.
any links to buy the shield? i cant find any.Welding it will damage the chrome, you could weld it and get a pipe tatoo put on them. Its a black coating in a tribal or flame design and it would cover up the spot and you could do the other pipe to match. Finding them may be difficult, one of my riding buddies had his done at the harley shop. Or compare the price of a new sheild to buying a used set of pipes.
:agree: I`d call them first and see if they can help you out. If they can not help you I`d weld up the piece and then have Jerry (Liquidpain) recrome it for me that is just what I would do!!
