IF YOU HAVE A DUAL SYSTEM AND NEED TO REPACK BOTH CANS, YOU NEED TO PURCHASE A QUANTITY OF 2 PILLOWS - PILLOWS ARE SOLD INDIVIDUALLY. IF YOU HAVE QUESTIONS PLEASE CALL 989-269-6921.
This product is just the pillow, we also offer a full repack kit with all the internals for a Barker's Muffler.
Please note that some systems require a different pillow. Our mufflers are made in either a round or oval shape, and are 12", 14", or 18" long depending on the system. This measurement is just the can itself, and does not include the tip extending out the back of the muffler. Some systems, like the Raptor 700, comes in both shapes and you chose at the time of purchase which you preferred. For this reason you will purchase your repack pillow based on the can shape and size. Please choose your configuration from the drop-down menu. The repack pillow includes the 3/16" stainless steel rivets. Again, if you have a dual system, you need to select two pillows.
YOU MUST CHOOSE YOUR MUFFLER SIZE AND SHAPE FROM THE DROP DOWN MENU:
- 12" OVAL
- 12" ROUND
- 14" OVAL
- 14" ROUND
- 18" OVAL
- 18" ROUND
We recommend that you monitor and check the packing in your muffler after every ride. The length and time your packing will last will vary depending on how and where you ride. When you first notice any sign of the packing depleting within the can, it's time for a repack. Packing will wear out slowly over time, starting at 100% packed. It is normal for an absorption style high-performance muffler to lose packing but once you lose more than about 10-15% of your packing it will deplete faster and faster since it can now move around in the can. It is imperative you do not allow the packing to deplete too far. If your muffler becomes very loud or you hear rattling around inside the can you have completely depleted the internal packing and should not ride the machine until the muffler is repacked with a fresh pillow. Order new packing before you need it!
If your machine features dual exhausts, you will need to replace both pillows.
The engine in your bike or ORV produces an exhaust temperature that exceeds the temperature limits of traditional packing materials. Fibers exposed to these high temperatures eventually break down, become brittle, creating small particles that can blow out of the muffler. Barker's utilizes a Spec 19 fiber which maintains it's strength at temperatures up to 1400F. However, over time these components wear out and should be replaced to keep your muffler completely packed and flowing as it was designed.
The benefits to using our Spec 19 pillows include the following:
- Throttle response remains crisp
- Power output is maximized
- Fuel efficiency is maximized
- Noise reduction and exhaust tone are maintained
- Vibration absorption and baffle support
- Quality Spec 19 lasts longer than the competition
