These are the uncleaned exhaust. There has been a lot of mud removed from the bike and stuff but I've not touched the exhaust, as I want to make sure I don't do more damage than good.

Any suggestions as to how prepare the area for welding muchly appreciated. If the weld fails it could mean the difference between scrapping the bike and moving on to the next bit.

To prep it just give it a good wash and then if you can get you have a cordless drill use that with wire brush attachment as for welding can't help you there sorry gutted it got stolen and to top it of you had to pay to get it back

Sounds a bit unfair.
Talk about taking advantage.
