Repacking Your Exhaust Can

I decided to pull the core on my V&H Exhaust. I suspected it was shot or blown. Low and behold, the glass was not even there. I stopped at my local bike shop to get a repack kit, but he wanted 25 dollars for it. He suggested I use very course steel. wool. SO off to Wal-Mart I went. I picked up 8 boxes of Chore Boy steel “sponges”. I think they were 1.19 each.

Once I got home, I took the core and scrubbed it with a wire brush to get all the caked up crap off of it.

Before
The exhaust sounded raspy but had plenty of power.

After
Exhaust does not sound so raspy. It still have the same power as before.
I also think some of the vibrations I felt before, are not as bad.

Difficulty
8-)1 out of 108-)






I stretched the sponges out and figured that they will cover 1/2 of the core by wrapping it over the top. and joining 2 together. They will stick to each other with out the need to tie them. I did this all the way down the core. I have 2 left over. I then put it back in the can. I had to use a small flathead screwdriver to help poke the sponge in. Its take a little time to do. then reinstalled the screws, and went for a ride.
