Can I Run A 4stroke Motorcycle Without An Exhaust

My exhaust pipe fell off and got run over. i tried to make it as round as i could and i put it back on the bike. In the part where the end of the pipe connects to the engine block, theres a big gap. some of the exhaust is going through the pipe, but not all of it. Im guessing 50% of the exhaust goes through the pipe and 50% is leaked out. How important would it be to get my exhaust fixed? i have a custom made exhaust and ive been to a motorcycle shop and they couldnt even get a new exhaust.
