exhaust cap

I have need to cap off the LH spigot of a ZX-14 header, but no stainless fabricators near me willing to do it. Any ideas on a pre-made simple weldment or high-temp expansion plug available anywhere? I'm thinking of a slotted section of tubing and a shut-in so I can clamp the cap over the OD (2" / 51ish mm). All expansion plugs I know of are only good to about 250 degF.

Get a short length of exhaust tube (use the scrap piece from the stock exhaust if you still have it). Take it to a agricultural fabricator and tell them you need the tube made into a cap for a home-brew irrigation system.

In short....lie

If you prefer you can take it to any shop that welds stainless and tell them that you are making a testing cap for a vacuum system.

I assume you are plugging the collector exit. If you are closing off the collector inlet then you can probably get the welding program at a community college or high school to do the job.

The local exhaust shops think it's too small of a job, i.e. it's not for a Harley so they don't wanna. I'll try the ag/heavy truck shop next.

Yes, I'm trying to close off one of the 2 collector outlets but I want it removable.
