Repacking Exhaust

I know Cycle Gear carries repacking stuff. Is this stuff for dirt bike exhausts or will it work for street exhausts too? Does it even matter?

http://www.cyclegear.com/spgm.cfm?L1...=TUC_27-0340_G

Thanks!

how tight do you pack it? not alot of resistance but enough air gaps to absorb vibration pulses right?

i've used the fmf to repack. worked well. easy to use. there is a difference between 4-stroke and 2-stroke packing, so make sure you end up with the right stuff.

I picked up a pack of the 4 stroke packing and I'll try it out. If it don't work I'll just pull it back out it was only $10.

I just stuck with the steel wool stuff that was already on mine Got my new packing material taped up and installed and then realized i bought the right size but wrong length rivets!

Back to lowe's in the morning when they open. But the real question is...should I break out the hacksaw and shorten this while I am at it? My metal riveted yoshi badge broke of anyhow.

Why not cut like 15 inches off of it. It might look better like that

Didn't cut it. Got the right length rivets and wow it works all of a sudden

The FMF stuff from CG fit pretty much perfectly. I left the steel wool kinda stuff on the pipe itself. Wrapped the fiberglass packing around that and used some masking tape around in 3 places and reinserted and rerivited everything.

And now I itch like a motherfcker! 3 showers later and that still itches. Fcking fiberglass

Ya I read that online, it was like $25 and had to be ordered from Yoshi directly. I wanted to get it done and knocked out this weekend so I opted to go this route. We will see how it holds up.

I know you'll think I'm crazy but if you rub your arms with old pantyhose, it will remove the fiberglass from your skin and the itch will go away soon after.
Don't use good one's or your wife will be very unhappy.

What if your wife don't wear pantyhose?
Can I rub my arms on her legs instead?

Scubbed the arms real good with some fast orange. Hopefully I got most that off. Next time it's long sleeves and gloves.
