I don't know if there is any packing in the stock mufflers or not, but I doubt it. Even if there was, they are sealed units, and cannot be taken apart and put back together. They do make quite a difference in sound, several years ago, while I had them removed for something, I started the bike up without them, but with the goatsbelly thing in place, and it made quite a difference in sound. I actually believe the bike sounds better with the goatsbelly in place, and the mufflers removed, than the other way around. Jerry.
