    Sliencer Packing Material! Performax

    I know a LOT of people who got free samples at Dirtweek, so has anyone tried it yet? Opinions? I am getting ready to repack the 200 but it probably wont get ridden for awhile. I'll post back here once its been out and about.

    Good, better packing material is always good! Also I was wondering if anybody has tried the stuff that is supposed to make your exhaust smell?

    I just repacked my silencer with it. One bag is more than enough for two silencers. I only have one ride on it, and have no complaints. Bike runs good, sounds good and was easy to cut and install.

    I was gonna wait until I saw the condition of the Performax packing after 2 months of riding. But, I can do the preliminaries I guess.
    There is more than enough for two packings(for me anyway)in the Performax package. Bike ran fine, didn't really notice any difference in the tone or volume. I used half of the Performax packing material in mid-October. I generally ride 1-2 times a week, so I probably have a dozen or more rides on the packing that is in there now.
    Just for Yucks, I'll change it again tomorrow night and report back on how it has held up.

    Paking:  Better than the plain old insulation like stuff you buy at the shops. Easy installation, easier to work with, and enough for two packings. Does a nice job and holds up much better than the cheap stuff.

    Fuel additive:  I got a bottle of the grape, mixed up four gallons of gas, and had several people sniffing the air and looking around all confused at Bluff Creek. Next ride, at Fort Dodge, I forgot to add some of the grape stuff, but the guys I was riding with said they could still smell the grapes! Cool stuff. Also, just having that stuff sitting on a shelf in my garage leaves the whole place smelling good.

    Ive been using Performax for a quite a while now (before DW). I rode for like 3 months before I repacked it. the only reason i did repack it was because i wanted to see how it was holding up. in a two stroke, if its not spooging like crazy the stuff would last for a long time!

    The main thing I like is the sound, it gives my bike a little bit crisper sound. oh, and I was there when they were comparing packings on the dyno, PerforMax really does outperform Silent Sport.

    as for the smelly stuff, the grape is awesome! I think it probably works the best. Right now I have the chocolate, and i dont think it works real well, but im gonna try and ride tomorow and see. After that I will try cherry. There are a few fragrances that are supposed to work best with gasoline but i cant remember them right now. The stuff was originally designed for cars running alcohol cause of the nasty smell.

    I promised that I would change my performax packing and report back.
    Here you go:

    I said earlier that I had installed the Performax packing material in mid October. I was incorrect, it was the first week of November. I used about half of the product supplied in the package, maybe a little bit less than half. Since then, I have ridden about 15 times. Some trails, some gravel pits.

    The results:
    When I got the silencer apart I found the packing in incredibly good shape for the length of time it had been in there. I could still see the poka-dot pattern in the packing material. It was blackened, but only one 2 inch long spot seemed to have lost any thickness at all; and that was minimal.

    I was tempted to just cut off the blackened section and re-wrap the silencer with the used packing. I decided that Performax was inexpensive enough (two packings in one package). So I used the unused half I still had :confused: .
    I've found a new packing material for my silencers.

    Performax.

    I think I'll get some of the grape aroma stuff too when I place my order for new Performax Silencer Packing.

    Where do you get it and how much does it cost?? I usually have to repack fairly frequently because I crash in creeks quite a lot, and I'm trying some different products to see if I can make my bike as quiet as possible. Any help would be appreciated.
