Puch Maxi Exhuast Just Got Really Loud

Jeff Keesling /

I took my '77 Puch Maxi on the first ride since I bought it. Rode it in town to watch the World Cup Final. After the game, I started it up and the exhaust noise was waaay loud. Any ideas what can make this happen and how I can fix it?

See, feel and listen for where it leaks .

It's not hard.

Many times it's by the header or sometimes the tail piece comes out

It's definitely coming out the end of the pipe.

Check the volume knob. It may be on 11.

You might pick up a little speed with the silencer out.

I'm looking at a parts diagram. Would that be the baffle?

I looked down the end of the pipe and can only see the header pipe and the baffle tube. I guess the baffle fell out.
