Oil in exhaust

Well, I finally got my XX back from the dealer almost 3 months and $1244 later. Honda refused to pay of course. They claimed dirt infiltration and thats not covered under warranty. Anyway, When my wheeler was burning oil real bad the HMF pipe pretty much got filled with oil. Does anyone have any ideas on getting the oil out of an HMF slip on? Any help would be greatly appreciated.

I would say remove the exhaust, put a cloth with a little bit of kerosene on it and put it through the exhaust then rince with a hose.

May need to take it apart and just replace the packing material if it has any. My FMF has packing. I have heard some HMF that sound pretty loud so not sure if they have it or not. New packing runs around $15 or so.

Pull it apart and replace the packing. It's likely that the packing is full of oil.

Anybody replace the packing in a HMF before? When you take the tip off it really gets you nowhere. It looks like you have to drill out the rivets to get to the packing. Thanks for the responses everyone.

Drill out the pop rivets. Get some good rivets when you go back together. I think you can get a kit from HMF with the rivets and packing. Has been about 8 years since I repacked an HMF, but I think Mike sold me a kit pretty cheap. Use some silicon when you go back together.
