Throw your bike away. I'll gladly pick it up and dispose of it properly! I'm here to help!

Of the 3 919s I've owned, two of them had broken that bracket. It's pretty common, and nothing to be alarmed about.

Typical metal fatigue at the "weakest link in the chain". Both my '03 and '06 have the same issue, but at different points on the exhaust.

IIRC, someone on this site fabricated a bracket repair years ago. Time to search through the archives.

Personally, I have ignored the problem.
