Regular steel I would imagine, I know it's not aluminum or titanium, stainless steel? I'm no help at all, but if using a tig I would weld it like steel or stainless.

How positive are you it is steel? Because I'll bet you my entire life savings it's Titanium

No directions are better than bad directions. If you don't know, it's ok to let someone else answer.

Just like others have said, they're titanium.

I DO believe yamaha can afford Titanium... so thanks.. actually the reason most of us have a hard time letting go of 'em...

leo headers are stainless steel... so at least it was a good guess..
