Question 2 stroke pipe packing

Hi all,

Where is the best place to buy the packing for my muffler?

What is a good product to use?

Thanks DM

I use the matting and not the loose fibre stuff, Its easier to use and lasts longer IMO.

Mate I find the mat style stuff the easiest to work with, plus I think that's what's normally recommended for two bangers anyway. Grab it from your local bike shop.

Another tip I have is to grab a packet of those little stainless steel scourers from the supermarket. They're kinda shaped like tight little donuts and usually come in a pack of 5-6. Cheap as chips.

Put about 4-5 over the inner pipe and spread them out so each one covers about 75mm of pipe. Then wrap your packing mat around, put some masking tape around to hold it and then put your pipe back together.

It makes your packing last a lot longer, plus deadens the noise even further than what new packing does.

Make sure all the little holes in the inner pipe aren't blocked up as well.


P.S. nice little YZ you got yourself there mate

Dustmucher, as Aiden said make sure you clean up the inner tube with the holes in it really well, I wrap the matting around a piece of conduit the same size as the inner tube,, slide it into the outer of the muffler then pull the conduit out. It helps line up the hole and the inner tube goes in easier, also some high temp silcon around the faces and screws stops leaking. Now get out there and roost the old man ...

buy 2 packs also.. sometimes one isnt enough. probably on the 125 though having a short silencer one pack will be enough. buy 2 anyway, you will use the next one sooner or later

I just did the above Aidan, worked a treat, it runs very quiet now.

I used stainless steel "wool" but it was real heavy gauge stuff, not the fine stuff you usually clean things up with, Dust Muncher will be happy.

This is the stuff I was talking about. They open up to be a donut which makes them easy to put over the pipe
