I've seen one welded back on probably with TIG not too sure how sucessful as it could create a brittle spot around the weld maybe you could aneal afterwards to resolve this. I guess the rest of the pipe is OK?

as long as you have the right equipment to weld aluminum, it should work fine. I have seen a pipe which split down the center joint, a good thick-bead weld around the pipe kept it together nicely, so a stinger should not be a big problem. the thing with alu is, it oxidizes before you know it, so as long as you clean the joint really well, and know how to weld alu, the welded joint with actually be stronger than it was from the factory. as far as other methods, I just can't think of anything better than a weld. I guess you could drill out the hole in the pipe to the size of the stinger, and then tap threads onto both parts and just screw them together. High temperature metal epoxy / resin on the threads would keep it tight, but the whole thing would crack and rip the threads if it got bashed. good luck!

i had a pipe cut in half and welded back together. it held up very well so i don't see why it wouldn't work for your stinger.
although it is a lot easier to just get a new pipe.

I have a handfull of "practice" pipes that I've welded the stingers back on with Alumite. http://www.kappalloy.com/alumite.htm It can be done with a propane torche.

ya there is only one more up here and it only comes with the tuned ninja motor.
this is a pic when new,the stinger just came out,you can slide it in the pipe kinda funny and iv never seen this happen before.
normally they rip the pipe apart when hit,this one fell out.
