Default SLP pipe issue

Has anyone ever seen a pipe do this? I have seen them crack next to a weld but not out away from a weld like this. I was riding yesterday sled was running good pulling 8400 and out of nowhere it dropped to 7900 to 8000 rpm and the tone changed. I knew something was wrong and I stopped and found this. The sled is a 2017 axys with about 800 miles (500ish on the pipe). I am not here to bash SLP, just asking if anyone has had this happen. I am going to contact SLP and see if they will help me out. I am confident they will do something for me.

Mine cracked exactly the same way last weekend.

If there is 2.... I bet there will be many more to fail like that.

Were both of these pipes the updated version with the X welded across the egt bung or the double thick plate at the EGT bung?

These failures look like they are heat cycle or metal fatigue related failures.

I'm guessing they will warranty them.

Mine is not the updated with the X weld at the egt probe. It looks like metal fatigue, it is very thin in that section. I'm guessing thin metal and harmonics played a role in this failure. I will send SLP pictures this week and see what they have to say. I do feel better knowing I am not the only one this happened to. My friend had his crack around the bung for the egt last year but it was the old design without the x weld and they sent him a new pipe (updated version).

Mine is the updated, 2 bands, x weld and thicker plate version.

My pipe cracked last year, they sent me a new one.
This year my muffler cracked and they will not respond to me.

They have poor customer service in my eyes and poor products that don’t last.

I will not purchase SLP products again.
