Just ordered some silicone bronze rods,stainless flux and a brazing torch with Mapp cylinder. Apparantly temperature goes upto 1900C. I will give it a go. I have welded Mig and soldered before, but never brazed.

A lot of heat sink in those headers. Red heat will be 650c+.

You'll be throwing money away with that torch, the flame may be that hot, but it'll not get the job hot enough.

I agree- it might be total waste of time and money (and headers)
But if I set my mind to something- time and money is not an issue.
Now I just wanna try brazing. Also it might be handy for something else later on.
I will let you all know.

Good on yer, give it a go, it might work if you prep the metal properly  :084:
Can't hurt as you have another set coming  :123:

Young lad at my work has a 2014 tiger 1200 with 25K miles, he gave it to his local triumph dealer for a service & they noticed the issue below & apparently its quite common on T1200, T800 & T1050  :084:  :005:
he is having it welded up as the cracks are (at the moment) only hairline.
any one else had the same issue apart from Tigras1050?  :187:

Could this be down to washing straight after a ride eg putting a hose pipe on hot headers?

I am a 4th owner so history is unknown, but that looks like stress at the joints.
I had a go at brazing.
Was not very easy to make a rod to flow, results are not perfect, But I think it works. I just need more practice.
Later will post some pics.
