    do you think its possiblke to stuff packing in the end of the stock muffler to reduce noise?
    or would this just bog it down?

    Depends on how much you put in. The more packing you put in the more backpressure there will be and that means a power loss. I highly reccomend you take a look at this thread before you add more packing, it lists ways to reduce the amount of noise your engine makes.

    I did everything FB said in his articles. Blue collar Bob also put out a good buch of suggestions if you search.

    Packing (I did) It worked great. When all was said and done, My bike is 30%-40% quieter. Sure I sacrificed some speed but it's worth not getting attention!

    The one other thing I did is turn the idle done to the point where the bike barely runs! I have to adjust it everytime I get on it, but it's worth it!

    PS, I used steel wool and packed semi loosely

    in the old days they sold some kind of packing at auto stores
    think it was made from fiberglass
    a fast trip to the local muffler shop should give some information
    many such as my grandfather could not afford new mufflers
