In this article, I will discuss a few tips for soundproofing a Yamaha Rhino. I will also review two popular mufflers: the Flowmaster Hushpower Muffler and the Gibson Performance Slip on Muffler. These two products are both effective at reducing noise. If you want to reduce noise even more, you can also consider soundproofing your Yamaha rhino using a silencer.
Soundproofing a Yamaha Rhino
You’ve probably already heard of the noise-canceling features of the Yamaha Rhino, but you might be wondering how to make the cabin quieter. There are several ways to do this, but the most effective one is by installing ear plugs or muffs. If noises from the environment aren’t an issue, you might want to consider using noise-cancelling headphones. Other owners have opted for alternative methods, such as installing rockwool panels under the seats.
Safety is a key concern for a Yamaha Rhino owner. The open cabin design does not offer occupant containment or doors, and the weight of the vehicle is over 1,000 pounds. A simple retrofit can significantly reduce injuries and prevent needless deaths. Make sure to check the manufacturer’s instructions before buying a Yamaha Rhino. You can also buy a set of foam insulation to put under the front seats.
The Yamaha Rhino is an off-road vehicle produced by the Japanese company Yamaha from 2004 to 2012. It was built with two or four wheel drive and is classified as a recreational off-highway vehicle. The CPSC has recommended that owners not operate a recalled vehicle until repairs have been made. However, the suspension only lasted about two months. Yamaha has since announced a retrofit program to fix this issue.
Flowmaster Hushpower Muffler
A Flowmaster Hushpower Muffler can be a great option for your Yamaha rhino. This automotive-grade muffler is designed to produce less noise than the stock system. The Flowmaster Hushpower Muffler is USFS approved for noise levels up to 94 dB. It is also equipped with a screen-type spark arrestor. Yamaha Rhino owners are advised to regularly re-pack their exhaust systems to avoid a noisy noise that might affect their performance.
Gibson Performance Slip on Muffler
Whether you’re looking to increase horsepower or torque, or just want to silence the rumble of your Yamaha Rhino, a Gibson Performance Slip on Muffler will do the trick. These bolt-on systems have louvered internal cores that produce excellent power and sound without sacrificing quiet operation. Additionally, this slip-on exhaust system comes with all the necessary hardware to complete installation without any hassles.
A standard Yamaha Rhino exhaust system produces 22hp, which is not enough power for any serious riding. The 660cc engine of the Yamaha Grizzly ATV is much more powerful but weighs less than the Rhino. You’ll want more power to compete with the rhino’s noise levels. The Gibson Performance Slip on Muffler is available from most aftermarket exhaust manufacturers, and will meet or exceed 94db state park regulations.
