06 X30 MCX Silentmaster

I have an 06 X-30 with the MCX, and the big Silentmaster Muffler is cracked and leaking. I'm just wondering what options there are to replace this with? I've read of others having this problem, but haven't come across any good, economical solutions. Would prefer not to put another Silentmaster in.

Would be ideal to put something smaller and gain some space back there for impeller servicing. Not sure how I will do that when I'm older and less flexible...

The exhaust is made of fiberglass so you might be able to let it dry out and repair it.

I have an ole '92 with a SM and mine too was cracked and leaking. Dryed out and I had some fiberglass repair stuff in the storage. It's that green stuff with fibers in it, kinda like bondo. My plan was to use some West System 3 Epoxy and a lil cloth, but times got busy and I wanted to get her going. That was two seasons ago now and still not leaking.

Plans are to pull it and sand down the poo poo puddy next winter and system 3 it properly but it's holding now...

Kitty Hair I think is what you are referring to. Not a bad idea for a temp fix, doesn't solve the space problem back there but at least stops the leak for now. Has anyone ever tried those small inline mufflers they sell on skidim? If the result was the same level of noise, I'd definitely give that a whirl.
