Stock exhaust pipes' material?

What is the material of the stock exhaust pipes?

I need to have a tinny crack welded.

It's actually chrome plated mild steel.

all 950's were chrome plated mild steel. At least the H pipe and back is. I'm pretty sure both headers are the same.

I've welded on more than I care to remember. With the chrome plating using 308/309 filler works great.

I'm suprised... I have to set of pipe from 04 and 06 LC8
One on the bike, one on the shelf
Both went trough a lot of water, mud ... without any care
Both are brownish but still rust free, in and out.
I'm not a welder pro but I played a lot with metal in different projects, It's very hard to beleive they are made of (so thin) mild steel and lasting so long

I have anh pipe, almost new, wich has the chrome plated look

They are poor quality cheap mild steel that is plated, to give the illusion of stainless...like the spokes...

To those who affirm its stainless...go test with a magnet...

Some stainless is magnetic, so not a true test.

true. Stainless that has been worked or cold worked (as in bent and formed and such) will become slightly magnetic.

Usually not to the point of mild steel though.

However (as has been said multiple times now) the exhaust on the 950 is plated mild steel.
