Don,
Those cheap stethescopes you can get at a discount auto store are good for checking exhaust leaks. I have a Snap On stethescope and I take the vibration disc with probe off and add a length of hose to the end with the motor running and move the end of the hose around the header flanges and the area where the head mates to the cylinder. If there is an leak you will definetly hear it at that specific spot. You could also just simply take a flexable section of hose and hold one enf to your ear and the other as I discribed and get simular results. Again just an idea.
When you were a kid, did you try to put a whole deck on your bike?
