You could order a non Chinese 1M exhaust or take your off and cut out the blockage.

I looked up the rear exhaust on

and low and behold... China DOES get a special different rear exhaust muffler! National China version...

China exhaust muffler #18107847100
EU/RoW spec muffler #18107845402

The curious thing is how can the 1M muffler/can pass Swiss noise regs while not pass Chinese ones!?!?
