Trooper muffler

Recommended Posts

I am looking to upgrade or replace the factory muffler on my T2. Im not necessarily looking to increase performance, I just really want to quiet it as much as possible. I ran across this item online:

Muffler for Trooper T2 [Muffler - 1100cc T2] - $180.00 : Va Dune Buggy, Big Go Karts For The Big Kid In All Of Us.

Anyone have knowledge or experience with this product? I dont want to be doing a bunch of hacking so am looking for something more or less bolt on or minimal modification.

Any input would be greatly appreciated!

Do a search for trooper muffler or look at old posts. This have been covered in the past. Look at my pics in my gallery & my past post, I have a quiet muffler. My muffler setup was a lot less money. BUT this new muffler you found has not been covered.

That one looks pretty sharp while it's clean, wonder how hard it would be to clean back up after a day in the dirt and mud, but I do like the heat rap, I was and still am concerned about mine being a source of burns. Lenny found two Harley Davidson mufflers at a second hand store and made one for each of us. I really like the sound of mine and it looks good too, and when Lenny builds something, it's built good. If you want to do it your self, I've posted an elbow source somewhere, probably under mufflers if you do a search.

Thanks for everybody's input.

I decided to have the local shop where I purchased my trooper fabricate a muffler for me. Figure this is best and easiest as I am having them throw on a new set of 28" Interco Swamp Lite tires. :)

      HELP - my wife and i just bought a 2013 joyner trooper 1100 and we rode for 2 evenings with no problems. Went to ride last night and all of a sudden it acted like something was catching up and it didn't want to move easily. Whatever it was must've broke and now it moves with no problem but is making a rubbing/grinding noise somewhere in the backend. Could it be wheel bearing, differential, or something in cv shaft. Any info or similar experiences is appreciated.

      Soo for my second problem lol, 2009 trooper 1100 5 speed , will not engage 5th gear , all others work fine but seems like 5th doesn't engage completely and wont grab the gear. Any idea on where to start looking for issues, or what to look for in regards to linkage.

      So my rear diff lock cable is seized on a 2009 trooper 1100 T2 . How do i remove the end that goes into the diff ?

      I just bought a 2008 Trooper T2 not knowing much about them. On this one the owner said the horn doesn't work, the winch never did work and during inspection the rear brake lights didn't work. He said he replaced the rear light pods recently and the brake lights worked before. He said the fuse module is corroded so he bypassed it and rigged up his own switches for the fuel pump and radiator fan. I see in the wiring diagram the horn and rear brake lights are on the same circuit. Now I am worried the problem is in the wiring harness.
      I have the wiring diagram from the online manual but I can't make any sense of it. I see lots of posts about wiring issues and I am feeling a bit overwhelmed with all the issues I see with these machines and am regretting buying it.
      For now my main concern is to get the brake lights working so I can drive it to some nearby trails. I would appreciate any advice on how to go about diagnosing the problem or workarounds. Also if there is a better wiring diagram out there that might help. I would consider hiring someone local to diagnose it so any recommendations are welcome.
      TIA.
