We suggest pulling the core at 7-10k miles just to check. At that point the packing may look like brand new or may need servicing. Riding style can play a big part in the lifetime of your packing.
At 35k, you most likely need repacking.
We have different styles of packing for different mufflers. If you provide a part number from the muffler body, I can tell you exactly what you need. The core assembly can be removed by removing the muffler from the bike. Remove the buttonhead screw(s) on the outside of the body and then working from inlet end with a wooden dowl (broom handle) knock the core out the exit end.
A lot of patience and PB Blaster (penetrating oil) is are good things to have on hand.
