Muffler issue....

So I have a clack clack clack while running which comes from inside the muffler log. Are there baffles or flappers in there the could come loose? What could this clack clack clack be? 2010 X14V 25 hours.....its only one side that does it....

I know that for the Silent Master mufflers on our 2002 X-9, inside the muffler were a number of half round fiberglass baffles, some of which had come loose, probably due to overheating. The sound you're hearing could possibly be a loose baffle being knocked around by the exhaust and water pulses as the engine is running.
