Termi exhaust nearly blowing up...

Hi chaps & lasses,
I was rebuilding my bike and noticed my cans rattling. I decided to drill the rivets off and check inside. To my horror I noticed the inner metal wool had a hole in it and the outer fiber glass had actually melted and turned into lumps of glass looking similar to hard resin!!! I can only think this was done when at Snetterton I was forced to use baffles and noticed plasma flames coming out of my right exhaust when I stopped. I immediately took them out and thought nothing of it until now. Luckily the carbon sleaves are intact and I have rebuilt them.

Thought it worth mentioning as others (especially in the UK) may have to use restrictive baffles. This is on a 1098 engine using 996 carbon termis.

All that built up heat has to go somewhere... glad it didn't get any worse.

On a side note... have you seen Robin Hood lately roaming around in Nottingham forest. :-)

When I've repacked Termis, I wrap the new packing in Aluminium (plumber's) tape.

There are two benefits to this; 1, it acts as an extra barrier to protect the carbon sleeve if/when the packing burns away and 2, it makes the whole package of tube & wadding much easier to slide back into the can when reassembling...
