2018 750 Challenger 750EPS

Recommended Posts

Hi all.  I just found this forum and am so happy to find a source of information about the CC side by sides as the information on the web can be limited.  Our 2018 has squeaks while moving slowly.  Seems to come mainly from the front wheel area, but it intermittent and is very annoying.  Any thoughts or experience someone can share?

Also, like everyone else with the roof, doors, front and rear windows and occasional the top half of the doors, it can get pretty loud inside while riding.  I read someone mentioned using a yoga mat under the seat (gonna do that this weekend).  Other modifications being done to reduce noise levels in the cab?  Thought about sound deadening material (seen that mentioned here as well and know that friend's Mule has insulation under seat and on the outside of the front panel of the seat.

Thanks!

I have the same squeak.  My guess is the brakes.  I might check it out this week.
The cab noise is pretty loud.  Since I'm no longer under warranty I think I'm going to reroute the clutch vent, which vents below the drivers seat, to the back of the vehicle.  I think a lot of the noise comes from that

Richard - would be interested in what you find on the brakes.  Could you please post once you have checked them out.   Thanks for the feedback on the cab noise as well.  I assume the whole purpose of the clutch vent it to remove heat from that area and nothing else.  Would like to see how you do this.  Another user here VERNO shared that he did the same thing and it reduced the cab noise somewhat.  Also installing a yoga mat underneath the seat.  I also thought of sound deadening material on the outside of the compartment that sits below the seat as this is very open and I have seen other SxS that have noise deadening material here such as the Kawasaki Mule.

Thanks!

Happy to report we put a yoga mat in between the seat and the top of the engine compartment just like recommended here and what a difference that made.  I could not believe it!  Thinking sound deadening material on the inside of the engine compartment (outside of the wall that is under the seat at your feet inside the cab) and heavy floor mats might help as well.  Thanks to Richard and VERNO!

@Richard Hughes - any update on the brake squeaking?  Was riding with a friend that has a Mule and his was doing it also.  He said - it comes and goes, sometimes it does it and some times it doesn't but more often than not just after cleaning.

@Mikey1971 @Mikey1971  I just had the upgraded Muffler put on, and it's not any quieter. I have a Cub Cadet 750 Challenger 2018, I just joined myself. I have a fully enclosed cab and yes it is noisier than without. I'm finding out a lot of things that they don't tell you about to.

@Terry Hering which muffler did you purchase?  If you have not tried the yoga mat underneath the seat, well worth it.  What other things have you found out?  BTW - welcome to the board!

Price is $962.95. Not Counting all the other parts that they needed for the muffler. The template is $15.95, ignition cable which was $49.95. Then I asked him do a once-over the make sure everything's okay before the warranty goes out. And I like a oil change, now that I got it back it sounds like the wet clutch is going. And I did not try to yoga mats yet but I pick some up today. It's not that much quieter with a new muffler on.

@Terry Hering OUCH!  That sounds very expensive.  We were thinking of something aftermarket that might quite things down a bit.  We have also been looking into DYNAMAT or something similar to add in certain areas where the noise seems to be resonating from.  Also heavy floor mats should dampen the noise even more.  I have also been looking at the clutch venting notes from VERNO above.  Thinking this might help as well.  I truly appreciate the insight about your ordeal.  I know there are a few of us out there that are working these items that Cub Cadet did not do well on and sharing will help us all be more satisfied with our purchase.

      Hi, all, I am here to say i have found an excellent source for kawasaki parts, It's run by  Eddie Babbit. It is called Kawasaki Partshouse. run by Babbits online, Muskegon Michigan. http://www.kawasakipartshouse.com/oemparts
      Just the other day i ordered piston rings, for my Mule 550, They got here and a Oil ring, and smaller ring were missing from the box, Kawasaki took responsibility for the "Accident" and  I had also contacted babbits, and they replied and they said" keep the old rings, order a new set and you just pay shipping" so i got $30 piston rings for 8.95!!!? Free shipping on orders over $50!!!
