Pipe repack?

Anyone ever repacked a DG pipe before? Does it change the sound of it at all? Mine comes apart (it appears), so I was wondering if repacking it would mellow it out at all??

Re: Pipe repack?

i just repacked my DG Type II pipe thats on my quadracer middel of last week. i had planned on replacing it, but after a quick sprint ride i looked at the back of the pipe and the pop rivets holding on cap were broke and the cap was just sitting there. i pulled it all apart and went to the local shop and talked to them. they told me to go to walmart and buy a pack of steel wool and repack it real tight in there. so i did and it mellowed the sound just a tad, but not much. it is still loud as crap. it feels as if it gave it a better hole shot also. but that may just be me, i havent had a lot of time to ride it since the winch accident. hope this helps.

Re: Pipe repack?

WHY YOU WOULD EVER REPACK YOUR PIPE DEFIES ME.unless your fillng it with crack. on the other hand repacking your silencer is another story. the monkeytit that told u to use steel wool is on the pipe. you are supposed to use fiberglass repacking made for dirt bikes. thats what absorbs the sound.

Re: Pipe repack?

It wont really hurt it...but it doesnt do any good...
get regular repacking for it....you should be able to goto most any dealer or aftermarket company and get repack for mufflers...

good luck

Re: Pipe repack?

airborn,
thanks for the heads up on this. i went downtown and got some regular repacking for it. i will install it this afternoon. i also mentioned to the guy at the counter what the other guy said and he told me that the other guy got fired for telling people stupid things like that.

Re: Pipe repack?

I'm sure glad roostinya set me straight on the "pipe" repack. I was planning on stuffing the whole thing, from the head on back. I considered using crack, but decided it was definitely cost-prohibitive, plus a little bit risky from a legal perspective. Not being a user myself, I was also unsure as to where I could procure that much of it.

That being said, I bought some fiberglass at the local shop the other day, and repacked the SILENCER last night. Haven't heard it yet- didn't care to roust the neighbors. There was nothing left of the old material at all. It was even easier than I expected. The most difficult part was getting the larger-than-normal snap ring back into place to hold the core.

Thanks for the input guys!

Re: Pipe repack?

i just got my silencer repacked yesterday with the fiberglass kit that i picked up from the local store. it lowered the sound of the machine a tad bit, but not alot. bottem end power feels like it increased after the repack. hope this helps.
