Default Cheap fix needed

Ok so exhaust pops when getting on and letting off the throttle. Exhaust leak. Once I finally found the source of the leak I found out the exhaust can has a huge crack in it.

Now keep in mind im broke, and this is my first motorcycle I can call mine. I know a new can and mid pipe would more than likely fix the exhaust leak, but like I said, I'm broke.
Could I get away with a straight pipe with internal baffle. Can I put a glass pack on it?

All help is appreciated, thanks

They do have metal based JB. Sand it smooth paint and go. Either that or have a welder TIG it for you.

You got pics of the problem area?

I'm not that far away, might be able to help out with a resolution if I know where the issue is.

Just from the Avatar picture, it looks like you've already got a 4 in to 1 header. If thats true, then it may have a jet kit already installed. If not, then you're probably going to lean out. That may explain some of the initial popping noise you were experiencing to begin with I'd look on Craigslist for a parts bike. I bet you can find a cheap stock, dual exhaust for really cheap.
EDIT: If you don't fix it right, then your going to destroy your motor. That popping is toasting your cylinder walls and rings. Common newby mistake, putting aftermarket exhaust without a jet kit.

Yup still popping. Sounds dope if it wasn't popping. So I'm guessing I should get a jet kit. Or should i clean an out real good before going ahead with the jetting
