repack_your_exhaust_can

====== 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.\\ {{ :repackng_your_exhaust_1a.jpg |}} 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.\\ {{:repacking_your_exhaust_1.jpg?360|Click To Enlarge}}{{:repacking_your_exhaust_2.jpg?360|Click To Enlarge}} {{:repacking_your_exhaust_3.jpg?360|Click To Enlarge}}{{:repacking_your_exhaust_4.jpg?360|Click To Enlarge}}\\ {{:repacking_your_exhaust_5.jpg?360|Click To Enlarge}}{{:repacking_your_exhaust_6.jpg?360|Click To Enlarge}}\\ {{:repacking_your_exhaust_7.jpg?360 |Click To Enlarge}}\\ \\ \\ **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 10//8-)\\ \\ \\ \\ \\ \\ \\ 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.\\ [[http://fzronline.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=32&t=1370|{{ :comments.gif |}}]] ---- -jsph.mitch
