I've been looking for a muffler/silencer for my 2011 Ranger 500 Crew and have noticed a lack of these items on the market. I've read reviews on the Kolpin Stealth 2.0 and the Benz Silent Rider and, overall, they have not been favorable.
I hunt and the guys I hunt with both have Bad Boy Buggies. They don't let me take my ranger around the land during hunting season because they feel it would scare off the deer. So, my goal is to make my Ranger as quiet as possible, regardless of how the performance is affected. Now, I know my Polaris will never be as quiet as the electric buggies, but I think it can be a heck of a lot quieter than it is now.
Does anyone have any experience with any of these aftermarket mufflers? I would prefer a slip-on so I wouldn't have to weld anything, but if a welded muffler is what it takes to make my Ranger 50% or more quieter, then I will go that route.
Please offer up some examples of brands/models that you have experienced first-hand or even through word of mouth.
