Repairing the Muffler

Alright, I've got 4 holes drilled in my muffler, which honestly was a damn mistake to go over 2, but I'm a bit hungry for a speed over 25. How do I fill in these holes? And what should I use?

Re: Repairing the Muffler

I think what you can do is weld some little pieces of metal over the holes, I've never done this but I've heard of people doing it to their dirtbike exhaust pipes and I think it works, but someone else may have more info about that. Good Luck !!!!

Tryed the same thing on my ped. ended up getting a nut and bolt with the bolt being as close to the size of the hole i'd drilled, Screw the nut all the way to the top of the bolt, hold the bolt in the hole and weld the nut to the muffler. I filled in two of three holes that way. I can still remove the bolts, opening the holes for those 'to hell with the noise I want the speed' days.(If theres nothing to tinker with whats the point?) And screw the bolts back into the nuts for more civilized days. If you havent a welder the muffler cement should work for a while. good luck

Steeltape - it's kinda this metal tape used for muffler repair, works real good on moped exhuasts, check yer local auto parts chain store...Autozone, Murrays, etc.

Some Walmarts and Meiers also carry it in the auto parts section.
