the repack kit is 20.00 , i repacked my own,probaly around 35.00 if you send it to them they are in michigan too so shipping should be too bad.

Well......

The repacking for me went EASY and BAD at the same time.

I broke my Rivet gun when repacking so said screw it.

I put some Bolt's and Lock Washers in there and was done in 5 minutes lol.

Now repacking should be a breeze.

Hey, that'd be great! My Barker is still good but when it comes time a "How-to" would be awesome!

I guess its time to repack mine also the packing is coming out the end. It kind of suck though I dont think I have 30 hours on the pipe probably closer to 20. Is that normal for an aftermarket pipe? The Barker is the first aftermarket pipe Ive had.

yeah thats about all you get is 20 to 30 hrs at the max and if you dont plug the end cap when you wash it and get water in there , the packing even goes quicker:disgust:

I just repacked mine last weekend and it was a pia but next time should be a lot easier. I got my barkers exhaust in August of 2010 so I thought it would be blown out by now but I was way wrong.

It still had 90% left but I figured since it's open I mite as well change it. Make sure you get a 3/16" drill bit for stainless steel because regular bits wont work for drilling out the rivets. I wrapped the paking around the core really tight and it slid in the exhaust very easily.

Then you need to squish the exhaust back into an oval because it will become a circle and not be able to fit the cap back on. With the cap back on I riveted the stainless steel rivets with a manual gun which was the most time consuming part. Ofcoarse after I did that I looked down the core and it wasn't lined up with the reverse megaphone inlet.

So time to drill the new rivets out and start all over. I got it lined up perfect this time but had no more rivets since they only give you 6 with the repack kit. So I went to home depot and got a pack of aluminium 3/16" by 1/2" rivets. They were much easier to deal with and i was all done.

Also for those of you who have the aluminium canister and didn't get it in black, get something like a scotch bright pad and go "with the grain" and it will look like you just bought it. This is the video I used to help me through it. Good Luck!

Repack Kit

Is there a direct link to purchase the Barker repack kits? I do not see anything on EHSracing.com to purchase these.
