We used to make them up ourselves also to save money. Weld a 1/4" all thread rod to the side of a 1.5" washer, then drill the exhaust and feed the threaded rod through the pipe. Put a small spring on the outside, then a nut, and lock it against a wingnut. You have a cheap, easy baffle, that can be turned to either direction to quiet it down, or leave it noisy.
That............ sir, is a good idea
