I let it cool of and took the pipe parts out of it. It looks like the welds broke inside that hold the header pipe to the muffler part.

Help! I don't weld or know a welder. Can it be soldered? Braised with some kind of propane torch? A special, cheap, clamp? Any ideas other then welding?

2nd test ride?
How old is your kit?
Where / who did you buy it from?

Sounds like your broken pipe should be covered by the sellers warranty
Did you get a warranty?

Is there a stub on the muffler left?
Posting a pic would be helpful for a temporary fix

Where on earth are you?

Good luck on getting back up and running ....
