Repacking Your RJWC Powersports Mufflers: A Comprehensive Guide
Maintaining your RJWC Powersports muffler is not just a recommendation—it's a necessity for optimal performance and longevity. Unlike traditional mufflers that require drilling out rivets for repacking, our mufflers are designed for user-friendly maintenance. With just a few simple tools, you can easily open them up for repacking.
Even though our mufflers are built with long-lasting packing material, it's important to remember that no packing lasts forever. Over time, the packing material can degrade due to high exhaust temperatures and vibrations. This not only affects the sound quality but also robs your vehicle of low-end horsepower. Regular repacking ensures that your muffler performs at its best and keeps your warranty intact.
The RJWC Repacking Kit
We offer ready-made repacking kits that include a needle-felt glass fiber mat and a stainless mesh. These high-quality materials are designed to withstand high temperatures and prolong the life of your muffler.
The Repacking Process
- Preparation: Before you start, make sure you have your RJWC Repacking Kit and the necessary tools. Put on gloves to protect your hands from fiberglass irritants.
- Opening the Muffler: Our mufflers are bolted together, making it easy to open them up without the need for drilling.
- Removing Old Packing: Carefully remove the old packing material and clean any residues.
- Installing New Packing: Roll the new glass fiber mat tightly around the core of the muffler. Secure it with masking tape, which will burn off quickly once the muffler is in use.
- Sealing and Closing: Before sealing the muffler, run a bead of high-temperature silicone around the edges to ensure a tight fit. Bolt the muffler back together.
- Final Check: Before reinstalling the muffler, give it a thorough inspection to ensure everything is tightly secured.
Tips for Longevity
- Regularly inspect your muffler for signs of wear or damage.
- Follow the repacking schedule recommended in your user manual.
- Always use RJWC Repacking Kits for best results.
By taking the time to repack your RJWC Powersports muffler, you're investing in the performance and longevity of your ATV, UTV, or Side by Side. Happy riding!
