Exaust Pipe Help

Recommended Posts

I have an 09 kx250f and i was putting the pipe back on tonight. yet, the metal wire in the muffler side of the pipe was sticking out some. so the pipe wont slip on. i unraveled a little bit of the wire out. how does it go back on? is this a big problem?

thanks for any replies

I'm confused.

Are you saying your muffler core is broken? There is no wire on the pipe.

I think you are referring to the muffler packing wire? if so you just need to pull the wire tighter so that the muffler will slip one. No a big problem, but it keeps the packing in place.:busted:

Never heard of packing wire being on the inside of the core.

there is a stainless mesh that is composed of wire around the perf core in the muffler. The fiberglass packing goes around that. IT keeps the heat lower and helps the packing last longer. Not on 2 strokes, though, just 4T's.

Get it back in there with a pick or something, so the muffler fits together correctly....
