Massimo 400 - Noise reduction


TCAM

Recommended Posts

I recently purchased a 2020 Massimo 400 EFI and  began installing soundproofing to lower the overall body noise.  The model I choose is the crew cab with rear facing seat and diamond plate bed.  

the first phase involved removing the rear deck and applying Noico 80 mil sound deadening mat over the exposed diamond plate sections of the underside.  This immediately removed the  sound of vibrating metal plate!

Next phase is to continue this application to the interior of the plastic  around the engine compartment and then any other plastic panel that has a "hollow" sound.   It will add 2-3 pounds to the overall vehicle weight  but it makes a huge difference in noise reduction.  One question I have - there is a vent directly in front of the engine (behind a drivers leg about calf level)  I am strongly thinking about covering this as the level of engine noise here is huge.  The engine is water cooled so I don't think this is a problem as the air input is minimal - but i don't wish to overheat the engine.

Thoughts?

      I have a 2018 Massimo Buck 400 with 278 miles. 
      Having issues with my brakes. Took the buggy hunting and when I let my foot off the gas pedal it pulls without pressing on the brake. I looked and the pads on all 4 wheels are all toast. The E-Brake hasn’t been on since I have had it. I am guessing it may be a master cylinder issue because all 4 pads are gone. They all seem to have worn evenly that’s why I think the master cylinder. Just got the machine used from a older couple and they said it sat for some time in there pole barn. Possibly the brake lines? Calipers? I took one brake apart and when I depressed the caliper it didn’t stay. Any help is muck appreciated.

      Hey Yall,
      I have a 2011 cub cadet UTV that runs rough at higher speeds (sputters) . I changed plugs and replaced the gas with new . Does anyone have any idea thinking fuel filter or pump ?

      Just bought a used UTV, my first SxS.  It is extremely LOUD!   Was thinking of wearing shooting ear muffs to muffle the noise but then my passenger( wife) and I couldn't hear each other over the shouting we have to do now.... On the other hand we sometime ride with my brother and his wife and would like to be able to communicate. We throught about FRS and/or GMRS radios (we are licensed for GMRS) but we'd have to wear earphones under our ear muffs. My state doesn't require helmets to ride UTVs.
      I suppose if everyone has a cheap FRS/gmrs bubble pack radio with a ear phone we could all talk to one another. Just wear an ear plug in the other ear or ear muffs.
      Looking for suggestions.
