My exhaust cracked :(

Hey guys ive been going throigh the bike as yall know.. The previous owner had some header wraps on the exhaust and i decided to replace it along with check the exhaust for and unseen issues.. Well i start unwrapping the exhaust which i assume is some type of vance and hines exhaust because there is no goat but.. Yeah back to the unwrapping.. As im unwrapping the left header guess what i see. A crack that almost goes clear around the first bend or the header... Exhaust was pretty much being held together by the damn header wrap... Now to buy a new header and. Cut and re weld this exhaust back together. also i noticed almost the whole dang exhaust has been blued im assuming to high exhaust temps. Any input?

could be from the wrap, which holds in heat

The wrap could have caused all of the issues for sure. It promotes rust, higher temperatures on the pipes, etc.
