I have yet to do my own repack but I have read threads of people using packing tape.

I repacked a pro circuit muffler for a previous bike that had material similar to this wrapped around it. I bought the pipe brand new so I guess thats what PC used.

I just happened to have some of the stuff up on the work bench. The nice thing about doing it this way is it packs the packing in tight and it lasts a long time.

Isn't that the truth??? What a difference the bigger diameter mid-pipe and free-er flowing exhaust makes!! Wheelie machine!

I use plain old masking tape to tape mine up and it just burns off or releases once things heat up. Got this tip off the FMF site and it's worked for me.
