Yoshi slip on-repacking

For those of you that have installed the Yoshi slip on or any slip on for that matter,have you had to repack it yet? If so how hard is it to do?
Trying to decide which slip on I want to install.
Thanks

I have 24k miles on my Yoshi and it still looks and sounds great! I don't believe it will need repacking for a while yet.

Not difficult at all. There should be some youtube vids that will let you know what you're in for.

I would say it's fiberglass wool as repacking material. Steel wool only for cleaning the interior parts.

One reason we didn't go with the Yoshi.
We have a Barrett exhaust on our bikes, no repacking req.
If you don't repack you will lose performance as the air flow will be slowed and the centre tube will wear out eventually needing replacement.
