5 minute silencer repack.


If your one of those people who like to keep up on there silencer repacking, to keep that crisp response and that throaty tone, this is for you.

1)Take silencer off of bike.

2)Drill all rivets out, endcap rivets and all, fully dissasemble the silencer.

3)Measure (on the endcap end) of your silencer body, just past the rivet holes and make an even cutting mark all the way around, a scribe or marker will do. (make note of the amount cut off, measure it and write it down)

4) Cut the silencer body along the line you made in step 3, With a die grinder and disk, dremel, or even a hacksaw, so you have an end on your silencer body with no holes.

5)Now, Use the measurement from how much you cut off your silencer body (the one that you wrote down in step 3) And cut that much off the core of your silencer.

6)Now take your endcap, and on the surface that touches the inside of the silencer body, measure from the outside edge to the center of a rivet hole, then take that measurement, and transfer it to the silencer body and make an even scribe all the way around the endcap end.

7)Now slide the endcap in backwards, and mark out on the silencer body where the holes are that you want to use, ( I used three, one on top and 2 on the sides towards the bottom).

8) Now on the intersections of the marks you made in step 6 and 7 drill 1/4" holes in the silencer body, so they will match up with the holes in the endcap.

9) Slide the endcap in the silencer body again, now putting the bolts you are going to use through the holes you just drilled, and putting the nuts on the backside. Snug all the nuts down.

10) Weld the nuts to the inside of the endcap, then remove the bolts and the endcap.

11)Rivet the silencer body back onto the midpipe and core section, use high temp silicone for a good seal and no vibration.

12) reinstall silencer, pack it full of your favorite packing, put some silicone on the endcap and slide it in, put your bolts in, tighten it all down, wipe off the excess silicone. And your done!

The benefit of this is that now all you have to do to repack your silencer is take out your 3 or so bolts, that you welded nuts on the inside of the endcap for, out, pull your endcap off, pull out your old packing, put new stuff in, reinstall your endcap with the bolts.

No more drilling rivets and stuff.

I did this to my 400 and it definitely cuts down on maintenance time, since i repack about 3 times per season.

Im sorry if my instructions are hard to follow, especially without pics, hopefully you got the idea. :excuseme:

      Have anyone used wiseco center intake valve with the four rest beginning OEM? How does it turn out in terms of power and reliability?

      My 2011 YZ250 is undergoing a full engine and chassis rebuild and I have decided to go with a 300 kit (the bike needs a new cylinder anyway so this is a good time to do it). 
      The current YZ250 power curve/delivery is good so i'm not aiming to create a torque monster that doesn't rev, just looking to add more power throughout the current range.  I primarily ride MX, intermediate level.
      My questions for those run an Athena 300 kit are below:  
      Has it been reliable?
      Is there in increase in bottom end/crank problems?
      What pipe/jetting do you run/recommend (for MX, 0-1500ft altitude)?
      Anything I need to watch out for during install (I've heard Athena circlips are bad)?
      Did you have custom porting done and if so who do you recommend for that?
      What octane of fuel do you run?
      Thanks in advance!

      Hi Everyone,
      I just picked up a 2000 TTR90 for my son.  the previous owner had the exhaust fall off while riding and a guess left it in the desert. Anyway I want to pick one up, cheap. I'm not looking for extra power or anything.  Ebay has a ton that say they fit, but I don't see how they fit the support bracket, and the exhaust pipe is 26mm, but these all seem to only go down to 38mm. here are some links so you can see what I'm talking about.  If you know a good link for one please let me know.|Model%3ATTR90&hash=item4d56c00780:g:WSQAAOSwzgBY23oo&vxp=mtr|Model%3ATTR90&hash=item3628f8a266:g:WSQAAOSwzgBY23oo&vxp=mtr

      Recently got a bw 2007 ktm 85sx And it seems to be leaking from the exhaust? I found the fluid on the swing arm and I think it’s coming from the where the front pipe meets the silencer (I ran my finger under the rubber gasket and found some drops of it). I’m quite new to bikes and would want to know how/what I can do to fix it.
      Thanks, Jamie.
