So I drill out the rivets and pull my Sil Moto carbon cans apart. First time I've done this so was pretty happy that I made the right call. I had noticed the carbon yellowing ever so slightly and, sure enough, the packing was all blown out. Only packing material I could find quickly was some Vance & Hines stuff from Riverside Duc.

Now the question - the new material looks a bit shorter than the old. Does this matter much or does it just get all blown out to the side of the cans? In other words, does it need to go firmly from one end of the can to the other? When I ripped what was left of the old stuff out, it was kinda stuck to the carbon and looks like it may have even been riveted in at both ends. Also, do I wrap tightly around the baffles or just let it float around in there? I may need more or longer packing? I may also put just a little bit of header wrap (3-4 inches) over the baffles at the end closest to the pipe. Hope to make it a little cooler as this is where it gets hottest.

Any help/thoughts here would be greatly appreciated. Just want to make sure I put it all back together right - although it was easy enough to get them apart if I need to do it over again soon.

Re: Repacking Cans (Kennedy)

I just took my termis apart to do the same thing, what i noticed was that there is a fine weeve cloth that goes between the pipe and the packing, it was wound tight ,and so packing was also tight held together with a glass tape.
It looks like the first layer takes the heat, this was burnt near the ends, so I thunk it is important.

Re: Repacking Cans (Kennedy)

Dude-

You will want to pack as much you can into the cans. Go get some more packing material and cut it to fit. I've picked up some stuff made by Moose, and I then dbled wrapped the amount I pack in there. That stuff fit my La Franconi's like a champ. To top it all off I'll wrap the whole deal in Heavy Duty Foil. Then tape everything to the end caps. The carbon sleeve should go on very tight.

This year I plan on using header wrap on at least half of the baffles as well. I fully expect it to sound like a big block when it's done!!

Re: Repacking Cans (huit)

Huit,
Mine had the fine weave material on the outside, facing the carbon. The fluffy fiberglass was facing the baffles. Not tied down with anything. Hmmmm. How many miles before you had to pull apart the termis? I may try tying them down - I have some stainless ties I can use.

mine had about 16k, I wouldn't have done it except that my chain broke and punched a hole in one can, when I took the system off they both had bits of shit rattling around, this was the innercloth that had been fried

Re: Repacking Cans (Kennedy)

Is there anywhere I can get race baffles inexpensively? Thank you.

Re: Repacking Cans (red-devil)

Race baffels...not sure but here's a guess - try a 'dirtbike friendly' site like twobrothers.com. Wish I knew - they sell a whole repacking kit w/ the packing, rivets, high temp adhesive, etc. all included. The time I spent tracking all that stuff down

You can get a repack kit made by Arrow from BCM. Thats what I used when I cored the cans on my 996. I actually rode for a while with them completely empty. What a F$%king noise that was... fun though

Re: (Ian900)

Pack it all up nice and tight. Any open space will subject to high heat and subsequent damage.
