I would like to inspect the exhaust riser on my Universal M-18. It is currently wrapped in a fiberglass wrap. Is it worth the unwrapping and re-wrap to inspect it? It seems pretty solid but at nearly 25 years old its probably worth a look. I've read the threads about replacing the riser and assume one can buy new fiberglass wrapping.

... or reuse it. Honestly even unwrapping and visually inspecting isn't going to tell you much. Mine looked solid enough but when I removed it it was corroded thin enough to be porous, to say nothing ofplugged internals.

Take off and do a thorough inspection inside and out.
