Where is your exhaust leak and how bad? And no I would not ride it if it wont rev past mid-range. You really need to take the time to figure out why it is running this way and not ride it before you do some damage. Sounds like it is in the carb but could be something related to the valves/timing also. The pipe and filter will definitely make the bike run lean if it still has stock jetting.
