To answer your question Jlowe...
There is a reason why no riders actually use bike shop sold muffler packing...
It's snake oil buddy.
Just grab some fibre glass insulation out of your roof. I have ridden bikes for 30 years and no one I know ever buys the packing in the shops.
Make sure you pack it in real tight.
I 1,000,000% guarantee, that tightly correct packed glass fibre roof insulation will last wayyyy longer than loosely packed bought muffler packing. If you can find anyone that can listen and pick the difference between store bought muffler packing and pink batt insulation you have only found someone that has fluked the guess.
Go for pink or yellow glass batts, don't use the white poly insulation.
Edit. Whoops, I didn't read turbomart's post. Sorry man, but store bought packing isn't the way to go IMHO, unless it's much more convenient to get it that way. Then it's fair enough. I hope this doesn't turn into an oil/tyre type argument thread. Lol.
