White brothers E2 repacking??

Since they're out of business, where do I find it? Everyone seems to reply to my order with, "the item has been discontinued." I need the 17" repacking, so is there a universal repacking that anyone can recommend?

thanks

You can stuff it manually with any muffler packing out there. It is just a little more work than the cartridge.

If you are desperate for the cartridge to make your life simple, Moose racing sells it. Part number 1860-0054 is listed to fit the 17" E2. This also fits other 17" mufflers out there (it is cross listed with the Pro Circuit 496, 4" T and Ti 4s). So if you can't find the Moose packing, just find a cartridge to fit the Pro-Circuit making sure it is the 4" diamter can and not the smaller 3.5 inch can as on older Pro Circuit T4 pipes.

I just installed moose packing and now them the smell that now comes out of my exhaust makes me want to get a whole new setup.

even when the bike isint running, the whole rear end of my bike smells gross because of that packing. even with the exhaust plug in.

From my experience, that is common with all of the cartridges that I have seen.

I always do it the hard way with a whole bag of high quality muffler packing, a roll of masking tape, some elbow grease, and a little swearing thrown in for good measure.

IMO a silencer repacked with a universal cartridge will never be as quiet as one that is packed as tight as you can get it by hand. But it will be easier.

It didnt do it this summer when I packed it with 1 "non moose" brand packing. I cant remember what brand it was, it was black and didnt stink :busted:

I just bought 2 sheets of yellow moose sheets and wrapped the hell out of them very tightly. now it stinks, even after an hour on the bike.

I agree though, the bagged stuff does make your bike quieter, but I dont like working with it. does it decrease, or increase performance if you pack it rock hard with bagged? or 1 sheet vs 3 sheets?

and it definitely had me swearing, that damn fiberglass made me itchy and I had a rash for a week.

Don't know if the performance difference is noticeable, but it sure lasts longer the tighter you can pack it. I've always felt that if you give it a little room to move, the exhaust is just going to start burning out the packing in that spot and it all goes downhill from there.

I used the matting like you did once. And that was it. It was a pain and I did not like the itch factor either. So now I use the "open strand" stuff.

I prefer the Silent Sport packing. No itching and it lasts a long time. I've also used the FMF four stroke packing and there is no itching with it either, but it doesn't last quite as long as the Silent Sport.

I do find that if I use the FMF stuff, I can cram a whole bag around the core and stuff it in there if I work at it, but I can't do the same thing with the Silent Sport. It will not compress as much as the FMF stuff no matter how hard I try. Maybe that is one reason why it lasts longer?

I will get that silent sport next time I repack. sounds interesting.

Thanks guys!

Thanks guys!

haha, sorry to jack your thread. I hope you learned something out of it at least.

no worries, always learning!

I think you have to call Vance & Hines, and get the packing for the Aluminum Pro, I think it's the same pipe, except you have to drill out the rivets at the other end to re-pack, I too have the E2 pipe and was wondering the same thing, I while back though, this was discussed and I think I read somewhere that Vance & Hines were going to keep selling the parts, But I would call them and see what the deal is.

      Hey guys I could really use some help. I bought a 2005 CRF 450x that has an aftermarket air filter, full FMF exhaust system (pipe and header), removed backfire screen, and removed air snorkel. Bike idles and starts just fine, but when I hold the throttle anywhere from barely at all to about 1/2 it bogs, wants to die, and backfires. Seems like lean running conditions to me because if i leave the choke on the problem mostly goes away. Additionally, if i move the air screw out almost all the way (to the point where it could vibrate off), it seems to clean up a little bit. I am trying to determine whether bigger jet(s) would fix it or if its something else. My dad thought it might be the float level, but I'm really not sure. Thanks in advance for your help!

      hi, I'm buying a crf450x and this is the first 450x I'm gonna own but i was a bit confused on one of the pictures. i checked on other crf450x pictures and could not find this on any of the others. There is a gap right below the air filter and above the swingarm and I was wondering if it was normal. 
       
      Thanks!!!

      I have a 05 CRF450X that was just rebuilt that is not starting via its electric start. I can start it with the kick starter as well as a rolling start down a hill though. Once started it seems to run just fine. I have it at a bike shop right now and they are stumped as well. So far I know the battery has been tested/replaced, the carb has been cleaned, jetting is good, and they have also tested the starter motor and things all look okay. Any ideas where to look next?
