Peterg is right, they are not supposed to come out. I convinced myself that mine needed cleaning when I could not get the bike to run well, so drilled out the 2 spot welds and pulled the baffles out. I now have a couple of small bolts to hold them in or they will come out like a rocket if the bike backfires. And no they did not particularly need cleaning so that was a waste of time and effort.

All of the factory fitted silencers had removable baffles
the B175 had a similar design to the D7 below but with tubes connecting the disks.
at one time unless you removed the baffles regularly they become completely jammed solid with carbon perhaps thats why some people think they were not removable, but it's not quite as bad with modern oil.
D14 and D7 below.

They're supposed to come out with each of the three baffles acting as a bayonet fitting; pull till the first baffle hits the two pips dented into the exhaust outer, twist anticlockwise then pull further. After my baffles fell out and were lost I drilled out the worn pips, replaced with short m6 bolts from inside the can out and fitted the expensive replacement baffles, now less likely to fall out again.
