For matt packing which some suppliers have, you would wrap the packing around the core, and wire tie it on loosely. Hard part is knowing how much to put in to fill the cannister.


I have never had a carbon fiber exhaust before and that is how Yoshi says to do it. Maybe it's different for carbon vs. stainless etc.? Could opt to send the canister to Yoshi and have them repack it?

Re: Necessity of Repacking Carbon Fiber Cans.

Nothing wrong with your video. Just the packing sometimes comes in a flat roll of packing as apposed to loose. So in that instance you cant do it the way the video says.

Re: Necessity of Repacking Carbon Fiber Cans.

also, any packing works. Name brand is not important

Any of those can be used. (first google place I found that has it)

Re: Necessity of Repacking Carbon Fiber Cans.

I meant loose vs. rolled rather than name brand. My Vance and Hines came rolled so you just slipped it onto the baffle and reinstalled it. It looked like what you posted:



Just breaking the Yoshi open is a huge pain and will require acquisition of new tools that will rarely be used

Pretty much any exhaust will require the same stuff. . Any modern exhaust that is at least.

I have just never seen loose exhaust wrap till I started poking around the Yoshi site. Thought maybe there was a reason/need for loose vs. flat roll when used on a carbon exhaust. I have always used flat roll and it seems easier to work with.

Re: Necessity of Repacking Carbon Fiber Cans.

It is in some ways easier, but the loose fiber will probably fill the sleeve more completely really.
