Is it riveted?
Drill the rivets out?

Kill whichever child inserted your 6" 3/8 drive extension in there?

But why bother if you can get a set of second hand standard can for peanuts.
Just replace it, loads of blackbird cans about.

It was common enough back in the day with two smokers, consensus was always if it didn't't affect running forget it and move on.

If that's all ya have going on in yer staid existence knock into the next door neighbour for a chat, he would be pleased to hear his wife is a lovely woman and how you would always be ready to lend a hand as you hate to see her stuck.

My old Suzuki GS 425E is the same, silencers rattling like fuck. I'd say the best thing you can do is ignore the noise, that's what I've done for the past nine years with mine

Could you put a strong magnet on the inside/underside to hold the baffle/broken piece against the wall of the silencer?
