first is the muffler stock. i dont think stock can be repacked

if not then how old is the current packing

every 30 hours or so it should be repacked

Take the silencer off of the bike.

Remove the screws holding the outer can on.

Slide out the insert.

Remove the old packing.

Clean the insert well.. Make sure all of the holes are clear. (I use a propane torch to burn off all the old oil)

Wrap an appropriate amount of new packing around the insert. (Loose is good)

Put packing and insert back in outer can.

Replace screws.

Put back on bike.
