But you can find those parts on eBay. I also had to replace a right rear muffler because the weld cracked at the very front and caused an exhaust leak. I got a really nice one off eBay for $35.

Any metric bolt of the proper size will work just fine, but the shields themselves are bike specific.
Doesn't ISO mean "in search of"? If not I'm sorry

And this issue is the clamps and screws are so rusty I can't move them without breaking. I'll try your hose clamp method though, it sounds promising.
