Default Question for the thrush mod guys

I recently cut apart a stock set of mufflers for my cross country. I'm curious about putting thrush glasspacks in them. My question is, do I have to remove the inner sleeve and fiberglass packing?

I didnt. Since i had a little over 500 miles on my mufflers I had an easy time slipping them in. Cut off the end cap, insert the muffler in (straight) and bang on a piece of 4x4 post. Took maybe 10 min for both sides.

I wish I had that experience. I had to cut the ends off, split em up the middle seam and pry the liner out. Then I slid the thrush inside, welded the seam back up and then welded the ends on. I've done two sets. It takes me about 3 hours or so to do both mufflers.

Default Split em

I removed the fiberglass lining from the inside. Split it down the side and stuck the glass pack in and welded them up. What I wish I would have done is: Stick the glass pack into the outside piece of metal and weld the side up. Center it in there were I want it and before welding on the ends I wish I had welded the front side of the new glass pack all the way around to the outside of the original muffler casing or metal. After having the mufflers on the bike awhile I can hear the exhaust blowing past the outside of the glasspack. Not that big of a deal, but my ears are not the best and it bugs me that I can hear that noise. It would just sound much better if the exhaust did not leak past the outside of the glasspack muffler. Most people do not notice I am sure, but I hear it. I now wish I would have taken a few more minutes and welded it up better. One day I may reweld it. Good luck. The other thing is I took the left side muffler off so all the exhaust now goes out the right side muffler.

measure what you want for length and then go to auto parts store and order them. That way you get free shipping and if there not right you can take them back. As long as there new

if i were to do it again yes i would pull the screening out, my mufflers didnt go in so easy, ive also been looking at different baffles to make my own glasspack out of the stock muffler, i would go 2 1/4"-2 1/2" all the way, use a baffle with perforated holes and not the louvers like most packs, and pack all around the baffle with fiberglass packing, just need to find the right baffle at the right price.

The PO of my XR put on an aftermarket exhaust [at the dealer]...but I can find no name on the outside of them. I guess it's under the heat shields ?
They are a large round [4-5"] end design ...sometimes seem a bit loud too me. But I came off a whisper quiet BMW...so I'll give it a while maybe I'll come to like them ?

If anyone thinks they recognize the description ? Please advise...I'm curious as to what they are.

I got the length part no problem. I'm just debating taking out the inner screen and packing.
