OK, the pipe has two section, the header coming out of the cylinder, and the silencer portion going out the back... The two sections meet around the kick starter...

Stock exhaust has a clamp there, the stock clamp does not fit the Dr D joint. Does the Dr D exhaust need a clamp at the mid joint? Anyone have a picture of the pipe installed?

No clamp needed, the pipes just slip together. If you have a leak there then put some high temp silicone on the pipe at the junction. If you feel better with a clamp then a hose clamp will work fine.

The Dr.D system fits so well at that joint that there should be no need for a clamp or silicone. Very high build quality from Dubach.
