Exhaust wrap

Hey, Just scratching around the workshop looking for something to do and figured my exhaust cans (TBR C4 Titanium) have not been re-wrapped! There is nothing wrong with them, in fact they are great... well maybe a little quiet for my taste but sound good. My question is has anyone tried playing with exhaust wrapping, i.e. packing the pipe tight or packing it loose? If it's packed tight, I'm guessing the sound will be louder and the gas flow will exit the cans quicker. If packed loose i'm thinking the sound will have more bass and reduce the gas flow!?!? Basically I want louder pipes... What wadding should I use and what technique is the way forward for performance?

Exhaust wrap

Are you talking about muffler packing or the tape that wraps around the headers and mids?

If you decide to pack your mufflers with loose fill I suggest going with silent sport packing material, works great and price is not too bad. From what I understand, the tighter the packing is the louder it would be. There are also pillow kits that may work better as I don't no much about tbr systems when it comes to packing. And another thing when you do clean your bike don't let any water seep into the mufflers as that will greatly reduce life of the packing material. That's all I got. Feel free to search more info here as I'm sure there was some threads about exhaust muffler packing. Also tbr sells full kits too to repack your mufflers.

Duckhunter is repacking right now. And b.miller123 has done repacking, as well as sbkdrew. Try sending them a PM with your question.

Yeah.... I am sure they would.

If you would just give in and sell me those banzai mids I would have been able to test the noisy little bastids.
