Usually the bracket will be tack welded on holding a captive nut or screw in place to attach the heat shield. That appears to be a heat shield and a trim piece, the trim piece being what's loose. I would remove the muffler from the pipe then loosen the two clamps in the second picture and slide the heat shield off, then from the back of the heat shield reattach the trim piece with a lock washer or star washer and a little locktite (yes, most of it will burn off) and slide it back on the bike, re-instal the muffler and off you go.

If the heat shield itself wont just slide off you may have to remove the whole exhaust to get it but try just pulling the heat shield first, it'll save you a headache and a few gaskets.
