Yes, The baffle is in the tail section. There’s a nut in the center holding it in. Once the nut is removed, the baffle can come out, but they are often stuck. To get it unstuck, I heat the exhaust up with a torch and then spray the inside down with oven cleaner, and let it sit a few minutes. That has always worked for me.
