I have another exhaust ProCircuitT4 that needs new packing and bends in pipe to fit
Permalink  
 


I have purchased a second hand "Pro Circuit T4 muffler that needs to be repacked, and pipe bent to fit.  Two questions

1) what's the best form of packing  a) Blanket type or b) Fiber packing?

 

2) I live in Sydney Australia, and recommendations for a  good muffle shop to put a couple of bends in the pipe to fit (2007 TTR250)

Thanks

Hi Rossyboys, I'm afraid I'm no help with your questions as I've not had to re-pack mine yet and I'm too far away to be able to suggest a pipe bending venue, but I am happy to help with any measurements or additional photos if of any use?
Here is a review of a T4 Pro Circuit I posted recently in case you hadn't seen it.... ttr250.activeboard.com/t67756508/ttr250-aftermarket-exhaust-review-pro-circuit-t4/

Hi Steve,

 

Thanks for taking the time to respond.  Your explanation was very informative.  I will see about the bends needed to make it fit. Thanks some more pictures would be great and if you can do some measurements please as per the diagram   Thanks

 

Here in Sydney NSW Australia we have gone down into lockdown due to covid cases.  We are getting btw 180-230 new case every day for the past 4 weeks.  Its that new delta strain.

 

Keep safe over in the UK.  When I am finished Ill post the results

 

Regards

Grahame

Hi Rossyboys, sorry for the delay, hopefully the attached pictures will be of some use, the squares on the background are 100mm x 100mm but the perspective from the camera angle is a bit deceptive so only good for a rough guide.

Measurement X on your drawing is 150mm, the second measurement 'b' is 45mm.

You will see that I have mine mounted outboard of the frame, and pannier bracket, hence the need for a small wooden heat resistant spacer between the can and plastic side panel. The outside of the can hanger is 5mm inset from the outside edge which is a lot less than the standard exhaust.

Do shout if I can help with anything further, happy bending, and take care with that dam virus!

Hi Steve,

Thanks for going to all that trouble, you pic's and detailed info will make the job ten times easier..... when our covid restrictions lift, I don't have the pipe bender for the tube so will have to get an exhaust place to use the mandrill and benders for me.

What was your favorite packing the wool type or the blanket.  I am leaning toward packing the wool version.

Cheer Ill have a beer or two for you.  Although I like a good "Wild Turkey"

Thanks again

Grahame

Hi Grahame, you are most welcome. I haven't had to repack mine yet but I did buy a 1m square sheet of blanket type packing that I could cut to size when needed purely as it was the most economic way to do it.
I did wonder how tricky it would be to bend the existing pipe as the can will probably get in the way, would it perhaps be easier to cut the existing pipe just short of the can and then bend a fresh piece of tube to connect with the down pipe, accepting the extra join?

Grandpa Tom, such kind words, if only it were true! Both tools and machines tremble in fear when I enter the man cave with a look of ambition on my face!

Bought some mat and a bag of wool type will advise.   Yes maybe simpler to cut off existing pipe and have it replaced with new section. Covid lock down creates time but have to wait for services of exhaust shop
