Loose Baffle?
My driver side pipe is making a blup blup sound with small chirps, is it a loose baffle in my muffler? Maybe a miss somewhere in the engine? The carb, wires and plugs are new.

It could be a baffle, it could also be a miss. If the timing is a little fast it will make a sound similar to this.

Diagnosis by someone elses' sound definition is always a little tough, but if it is only on one side it probably isn't timing. How many miles on the engine? Bad valves on one head could cause a weird sound as well as intake leak on that side. More diagnosing is needed, Compression on the cyl., power balance check , stuff like that.

Engine only has 3200 miles on it.
