Angry 503 broken exhaust

Was out riding today and all of a sudden the fanner was a little louder than normal, opened her up and noticed the exhaust flange where it meets the y pipe cracked apart all around the pipe. Now I'm pissed cus I didn't bid on the eBay exhaust the other day I won the ski instead so now I'm wondering what should do? Just clean it up and re weld it or replace the pipe which I doubt I can find and If I do it's going to cost $$$$$ which is tight now. Or possibly cut a flange off another exhaust of the same diameter or just leave it alone. Seems to run ok but I don't want to burn up the belly pan, and i want to ride cuz the snows melting as we speek and going to be 60 by tuesday so just want to beat her up a couple more rides till the end. Any other 503 riders have this issue? Just very random never seen they before. Any insight would help. Thanks.

When my ZX exhaust broke, I just TIG'ed it back up. Easy. Yha, it'll break again. But, I got lots of welding rod.
