You scored a bargain there Roden, I have the same pipe on mine but it's rather wobbly and has come apart (inside) header end of the muffler.

Will be pulling it off on the weekend to see if there is a fix I can do, can say they're not overly loud and you'll probably find it doesn't need repacking.

That's good, I didn't want overly loud, just a bit more fruity sounding and better looking! It arrive looking the worse for wear but has cleaned up nicely.

Can you tig weld? the only way into it is to cut and weld ...

Cheers,

Roden

I have noticed that they dont clamp to the header all that well. I go all Conan on it and still seems giggly. If you want loud put on a Two Brothers , that will piss the neighbors.

No problem tiging Roden, I'm keeping an eye out on gummie for a decent one at the moment, no longer work at a place with one unfortunately.
This is what the problem was with mine, fixable when I get myself welder.

I've got a Daytona version of that pipe. It was pretty rough when I got it and leaked like a sieve.
I managed to get it apart but had to drill out the spot welds in the inner end cap at the header end. The outer cap was fixed with cap screws.
The cap at the tail end had a weld around the perimeter of the exit pipe which wasn't too bad to grind off and shouldn't be too difficult to weld back on.

The inside was very poorly put together and needed welding in many places.
I'm stuck at the point of repairing the polished stainless end cap, and the inner cap which I had to drill to remove. That's a bit beyond my skill level.
After fixing the leaks it didn't look like it needed re-packing.

cheers,

Phil
