Exhaust sealant post silencer re-pack

Iím about to do a re-pack on my aftermarket cans, does anyone recommend a sealant, or just donít bother.

My biggest fear is that when I die
my wife sells my bike for what
I told her it cost.

I usually don't bother. The fit of the ends and sleeve are usually a tight tolerance you shouldn't need it.

I have rebuilt Sato, Erion, Akras and took apart my Ladybirds with no need of sealant.

What's the packing material you recommend for the oval Sato's Mb?
Mine, (your old ones), are getting [nice and] loud! They weigh 1.2 lbs less than my round Sato's, which were freshly repacked before I bought them. So Im thinking most of the weight difference is in the packing, no?

I have used this before, not the brand but the type of blanket before. I also use the fiberglass tape made by 3M instead of wire. Wire has the potential to vibrate against the insides of your canister.

Loud shmoud......these LBs are fecking loud! Although you live in the Peoples Republic of California, comrade...better quiet that thing down!
