    I finally got around to pulling my baffles out of my Rush pipes and not to my surprise most of the material is gone so I was goiing to use wood stove rope which is good up to 1000 degrees. I was goiing to wrap with about an inch between wraps the length of the baffle...does anyone have experience doiing this or thoughts about the best way. Thanks as always ! I already have the stove rope from a different project so I thought Id try it.

    Hmmm the stove rope sounds good, I've never tried that. My V&H's baffles came with fiberglass sheet wrap. I wrapped it good with clear scotch tape to keep it from pulling off when I pushed the baffles in. Worked good. The tape will melt off over time, but the pipe wall holds it on tight.

    I seriously doubt ends of the pipes get much over 800 F if that.

    I didn't know what stove rope was till I looked it up. Looks like a good alternate.

    That is what I was going to use next on my Rush. Then some one offered what I paid for them and I sold them. It seemed like twice a year I was repacking...

    I wrapped mine last year with the stove rope, it works very well. I wrapped so the rope was not covering any of the baffle holes. I used wire to hold the end and a couple places in the middle. Tim
