Oem exhaust rebuild

I just picked up my first Ducati and I was looking at the stock exhaust. It's a 2001 750 with decent paint and pipes. Instead of removing to replace with something new, can you disassemble to replace some internal baffles or something in order to keep the stock look?
Just a thought as I could not find any info elsewhere.

Yes, they can be repacked. Google re packing motorcycle muffler

Use the stainless steel mesh, it will last forever.
Most industrial supply places have it.

Stock mufflers will not really be packable. The reason is that there is almost no packing when new as they are more of a turbo style muffler than a "glass pack" design. Most aftermarket exhaust cans will be "glass pack designs and need repacking from time to time.

That said if you are asking if you can "core" them to convert them to a glass pack design the answer is maybe.

The monster cans were not the easiest to disassemble and due to the mounting method you need to keep some internals to have something to attach them with. the shop I used to work at cored plenty of exhausts by removing the internals and installing a perforated core that you then wrapped with packing material. we would not do Monsters as the labor costs involved made it more money that it was worth, your labor costs should be less

You will likely spend $20-40 for packing
$10-20 for core material
$20-30 for blind sealing rivets
if you can weld then you are good if not plan on another $50-60 at a welder
$10-20 for misc other bits and the rest is your labor

so if you do the labor converting should be in the $110-170 ish price range.
or
find a good set of used slip ons for not much more and spend more time riding.
Keep in mind you will likely need to add some fuel after making the exhaust less restrictive.

Thanks ducvet, there is really nothing wrong with them that I can tell and the outside of the cans along with the headers cleaned up nice. So... I will probably leave them for now and focus on timing cover dying and rear sets sent off for a fresh power coat.
I was really only looking to learn if anyone does this and how, or if you all just go buy a nice slip on. Which is the route I very well might go considering all the work involved.
So this was my first thread and I will be contributing much more either asking Q's or giving my $0.02 as I am very much a diy'er.
Thanks

You can find MIVV mufflers pretty reasonable
