Would this hand riveter work for riveting the muffler end cap back on after replacing the packing? Any other suggestions? What size rivets does the stock muffler use for the end cap? They seem to be pretty in-expensive, so I might just get one. http://www.northernt...84&prmenbr=6970

That's what I used for my muffler and it worked just fine, I had to go to home depot for rivets but i don't remember what size. I just installed the moose cartridge....

I'm running the WB's "E" series carbon fiber shorty silencer with the riveted end cap. . . is this similar to what you guys are running? The metal screen that holds the packing in is nearly completely deteriorated so I need to replace this screen and packing soon as well.

3/16th rivets. I use stainless steel rivets as they seem to hold better and have more longevity than aluminum rivets. During installation they are more difficult to snap off but worth it.
