Hi! it sounds like the baffles have detached themselves from the wall of the muffler/silencer. With the bike running try inserting a long slim screwdriver or similar into the exit of the exhaust bearing in mind it's HOT! try a little LIGHT pressure aganst the main baffle if it stops you may be able to drill and take a long bolt and nut to secure.(On the inside so as not seen) Failing that an after market system is the only route unless you have a large wallet for genuine.
Good luck!

Will i have to clean out the gas tank? and how is the best way to clean out the gunk that i can see inside of the tank? with the use of a chemical or some other way? because someone told me to put some...

the absolute best way is the smalls nuts and bolts. make sure the tank is completly dried out. wait a day for it to air out if need be. take off anything going into the tank. get the smallest ones you can find and if you can get the tank about 1/8th to 1/4 full of the things it will be best. it will not damage the tank and it will get every thing out. find two trees kinda close together and tie up the tank kinda loosely to where you can move the tank about 3 feet top to bottom and side to side. you are going to need to shake the tank for a good half hour non stop. your going to get tired and you can stop to rest but keep at it. the longer the better. empty the tank. if you have one of those magnetic reacher flexible things it is going to come in really handy. get every thing out. blow out the tank then reinstall.

I have trouble with the chain tighteners on the rear swing arm seizing up which causes the heads on the bolts to round off. I have just managed to break off the bolt on the brake side. What is the best way...

use some grease on the threads and lock nuts. Make sure the axle and lock nuts are loose before trying to adjust the bolts.
The bolts really only set the chain and wheel, until the axle is tightened,
grease the axle as well.

I bought a tank 150cc racer 2006 scooter and i need a manuel

ok if it is rusted inside the get a lot of small metal things (nuts and bolts work great) and shake the **** out of the tank. when you think you have it then shake it some more. empty the nuts and bolts and blow out the tank with air. get a few (5 or more) in line fuel filters and get ready to replace them soon to run out all of the debrise. if new get it painted and follow washing and waxing on a regular basis.

Vibration At 3000 RPM

If it is a rubber mount engine, try running thru the motor mount adjustment. You WILL need a manual for this. If it's a solid mount engine look for loose bolts and nuts, and not just on the engine. Parts still shake loose on Harleys, even a 2003.
