My repack kit came in and I plan on stuffing it tonight. Anything i should know before I tackle this? Luckily my pipe doesn't have rivets so I don't need any of that. I think mine is ready to go out of the bag but i know some just come with the materials and you have to wrap it your self. Just wondering. TIA

My old Suzuki triple had four pipes that needed repacking. Since it was a two-stroke, I used a propane torch to burn off the carbon, wrapped the fiberglass around the baffle, and used stainless wire to wrap around the fiberglass. I used regular fiberglass, but I think they make special fiberglass for this now.

Lots quieter!
Its tuff to get it stuffed back into the can. Use some wire to keep it tight!
Masking tape. You wrap the packing around the baffle then use masking tape around the outside. Stuff everything back in the sleeve and put the end cap back on.

I did it yesterday and it was REAL easy. GYT-R has everything all wrapped and ready to go around the core. No tape, no nothing. The cover slipped back on with ease as well. However, I do have a lot of fiberglass splinters. The pipe is just as loud and it seems like the bike is more responsive now. Just throttle anyway. Haven't rode it yet. it was 114 outside yesterday.

I called the only dealer type place (rec) that I order that stuff from and they said they have aftermarket stuff not but the Micron stuff. If I wanted the Micron stuff they would have to order from Micron. But heck I can do that...
