Are they loud bikes anyway? Anything I can do to quieten it down? I've got the stock muffler on it and its in good condition, no rust or holes

Thanks :)
Sounds a bit louder than my 82, hard to tell on the video.
Is the little cover plate in place underneath the very rear of the exhaust?

Mine is louder than I would like for it be.
