2020 Kawasaki Mule Pro DX Yanmar Diesel Too Loud


Recommended Posts

Just purchased a 2020 Pro DX  with Yanmar diesel. Had a 2007  3010 Trans Diesel I traded in. My problem is that the new machine is so much noisier  than my old one.

Has anyone had any luck in quieting down the noise? Sound proofing.?...changing the exhaust routing.?...the muffler? Any ideas or solutions would be appreciated.

My diesel mule is extremely, and uncomfortably loud. But it's really loud at the intake, more so than the exhaust. Of course that intake comes through the roll bar, which is right by my ear, but still...

My solution was a rear window, and lots of insulation beneath the seat. Now the noise is re-routed. And much more tolerable. 

Mine is a typical old style s×s, so that approach probably wouldn't work on one of those new style dune buggies. My point is that you might need to look at deflecting the intake as well.

I ended up getting  Dynamat used for carhood insulation and installed it under the bed. Also wrapped the exhaust pipe up to the muffler

with  exhaust heat wrap.  The intake is not my problem for it is mounted low near the right rear tire in a compartment . The noise is

 tolerable now but must shut down to carryon a conversation!
