Default Stage 1 Muffler Rattle Noise

Purchased the stage 1 tri oval exhaust a year and a half ago. Only 8k miles on them. The right exhaust now makes a loose rattling sound when I Rev the engine in neutral. Anyone experienced this on the Vic stage 1's ? Is there a baffle or tube coming loose inside? Can I loosen the 2 bolts on the chrome tip on the lower side to gain access for a fix?

This noise you hear likely isn't from the muffler, I'd lay bets it is the directional exhaust valve at the right for the cross over that's rattling.

So is this directional valve coming loose? I purchased 5 year extended warranty on my Vic. Wonder if that is a warrantable issue.

If you have a warranty and a new noise, take it to the dealer.

Check the hose clamps holding the heat shields on they're the easiest fix and you'll save yourself the time of taking it to the dealer for a fix you can do with a nut driver.

You're 100% right, I just assume when someone asks for help they've already checked the simple, basic stuff.

when pipes are cold pull your saddle bag. Then start hitting the muffler and pipe with you hand and see if you hear a sound.
I believe there is a allen button head bolt on the back side of the muffler

I'll use a rubber mallet. Another good idea. Thx
