Sometimes it's better to leave stuff like that alone. Even if you could pop it out you'd still have a wrinkle there, and you might crack the chrome in the process, or worse. A lot of exhausts have little dents there. Kind of goes with the territory considering it's right behind the front tire, and every now and then the tire is going to bring stuff up off the road. From what I can see that exhaust actually looks like it's in pretty good shape to be as old as it is.
I think I have a loose screw behind the handlebars.
