It's been at least 6,000 miles since the last time the Lexx MXe exhaust on my bike was repacked.

This is the first time I've ever repacked an exhaust. The metal parts look okay if a bit discolored. The packing itself, on the other hand, looks pretty trashed, even to my inexperienced eye.

Does the discoloration signify a concern or is it simply symptomatic of the broken down packing?

when the packing breaks down, it can create voids which allow more heat to transfer to the casing which, in turn, can cause discoloration. Don't worry about it; repack and ride. :)

I had a lexx blow up on me, blew a hole right out of the wasted part of the furthest out holder, bought a stainless can after that, Trinity offer eBay.
