hey, so some of you might have read my forum about asking how to do my first silencer packing job. It seemed easy enough so i got all the materils tonight and did it, trying it out tommorow after the silicone dries. So here is a pic of my Silencer and my packing, like i said before i dont think it has been changed since 1984 when the bike was made. The Packing was so saturated with oil i could literally squeeze it and oil would drip. Most the baffle holes were completely filled with carbona nd i had to use a crosshead screwdriver to get the carbon out. It was cancer in a tube! now she'll be the qietest bike on the track.(silent but deadly)

When I repacked the silencer on a kx 125, I used a small propane torch and heated the carrot. I gently banged it against something solid and the carbon would fall off like dust. I didn't have the patience to push it out with a screwdriver at each and every hole.

That's how many holes in the carrot I had to clear with a pick on mine when I repacked it...

ya so i get all these ideas after i do the silencer job, not before. Ive got a pressure washer and a blow torch. I just never thaught of using them. There was only enough packing to probably only fit half the baffle the rest must had been burnt and blown out the end.

If you would've asked before, maybe you could've got those tips.
