I think it depends on how much you ride but maybe once a year. I just pulled that out of nowhere.

Yes repacking the exhaust will quiet down a two stroke.

sorry, i forgot this step. and it helps on initial fire up if you actually squirt a whole bunch down the exhaust pipe before you start. its like starter fluid

It would likely help, yes. Unless yours is running a megaphone or A/M tip that funnels out, it should help quiet it down.

My exwf's daughter use to run through the neighborhood(125) and we repacked twice one year to quiet it down to prevent the police calls

Decided to redo the Muzzy on the bosses GT650.. I pulled it off my Bandit a couple years ago and been noticing it's getting louder..

Opened it up...

And no packing! Zero, zip zilch... LOL!! It's a little quieter now... duh!
