Usually, even for larger motorcycles, they try to keep a 2ft length, just to prevent the flame from going back to the valves in case of lean burn.
The diameter really depends on the CC.
For a 300cc single cylinder, the tube dia should be about 1 inch; so I presume that 3/4 would be good for a smaller one.

You can get cheap mufflers online, but should you have the time to make one, just drill a hole in a 6-10" dia tin can (off center) on both the entry and exhaust side, stuffed with rockwool, and chicken wire to keep it at it's place (or a perforated pipe), and weld the can on the exhaust pipe.

I got the bigger 17.5kw generator so it's not crucial.
I would like to build it at least so the CO goes up and away from people.

1984 chevy suburban, custom made 6.5L diesel turbocharged with a Garrett T76 and Holset HE351VE, 22:1 compression 13psi of intercooled boost.
1989 firebird mostly stock. Aside from the 6-speed manual trans, corvette gen 5 front brakes, 1LE drive shaft, 4th Gen disc brake fbody rear end.
