yes i have repacked a muffler, I had a two brothers full system on my last motorcycle a 1998 suzuki bandit 1200. I repacked the muffler when I had 45000 miles on it, probably didn't really need it, the sound level was a bit higher then when the muffler was new but that might have been more from me intentionally making the bike back fire. It was real loud (105db) when I had it WFO which was about 50% of the time when I lived down in L.A.; so I repacked it before I traded it in on my z1000. -100db will damage your hearing with prolonged exposure- and a typical racing exhaust will be 100 to 103db new when your bike is making maximum power.
Build a man a fire, and he is warm for a day. Set a man on fire, and he is warm for the rest of his life.
Everything I know I learned from killing smart people and eating their brains.
