Repacking & Resleeving Motorcycle Exhausts
Posted in Industry Blogs
Part of our Fuel Friday series, this video shows how we repack and resleeve our aftermarket exhaust silencers. We also give this motorcycle exhaust a bit of a refurb by media blasting the end caps and link pipe.
The video covers the following important points...
- How to check if your aftermarket exhaust needs repacking
- To take the exhaust silencer apart, drill out the rivets on the inlet end
- Remove outlet end cap
- Remove the old used exhaust packing / wadding material
- Drill the inlet end of the exhaust
- Remove exhaust body / sleeve
- How we media blast the existing inlet and outlet
- The differences between powder coating and ceramic coating
- Mark the end caps to indicate where the existing holes are located
- Add a silicone based sealent to the inside of the inlet end of the exhaust tube / sleeve
- Line up and fit the internal end cap and perforated tube section inside the sleeve
- Using stainless steel wirewool
- Using exhaust packing material - wadding
- Insert the wirewool and exhaust wadding into the exhaust sleeve
- Refit the outlet end cap and line up appropriately
- Refitting the rivet band - drill and rivet in the first hole
- Drill all other holes and rivet in place
- Tap down the edges of the rivet bands
- Fit the heat resistant Fuel Exhausts foil label / badge
- Final clean
