Is there a good bolt on silencer exhaust made for the viking. I will be picking one up on Saturday and it will mainly be used for hanging tree stands and going to and from my stands so I would like to make it as quite as possible. I appreciate any and all advice. My viking will be a 15 camo esp if that makes a difference.

I've had the Silent Rider on mine for awhile now, and i've been very pleased with it. Just be carefull on removing the screws from the stock muffler end cap, they are tight, and will snap off. I broke one of them, had to drill it out, etc. I'd recommend, warming them up first, that's what someone told me to do after the fact, lol.

I have the Benz Silencer like the other guys above. It helps inside and out. Also the Sound Kit your 15 came with is a plus. Get the Bed Mat and the Floor Mats they help ain the overall scheme of things.

Ok so I order this silencer April 25th, Called them a week later as it was still being processed only to find out it was still being made. I was ok with this as they said it be ready Monday. Get a UPS tracking number on Monday then get a canceled UPS tracking on Tuesday. Called this morning and they said it was a mistake and it was actually shipped on Monday and all is good. Only to get new UPS shipping that shows it was sent out today and now will not get it until the 12th. So bummed I really wanted to try this silencer out this weekend as it will more and likely going to be the last cool weekend for a quite a awhile here in Yuma......

Im still liking my silencer, along with the other things i've done, such as sprayin bedliner, Yamaha Bed & Floor mats, and the soundproofing materials that Mass-n-Trash used, its such a pleasure to drive around in now.

I have the silent rider. I gutted the stock muffler.. Got rid of the catalytic converter. And welded the original spark arrester into the new mounting plate for the silent rider. It's very quiet and reduced the exhaust heat by half. After riding in muskeg the exhaust heated so much with the catalytic converter it made the muskeg burn. It was literally on fire. After that ride it was gutted. Yamaha has a major problem with the heat. I installed a piece of Alum between the diff and header. It seems to work fine. With the exhaust gutted it seems to have better mid range power also. i cut the muffler at the weld next to the header pipe to gain access. few welding rods later it was good to go. 1 hr fix.

Its just a little quieter than the stock muffler with the silent rider. The extra baffle/spark arrester made the biggest difference.

Do you have the details and photos of your sound dampening project on this forum or just on the other one. Thanks, Outfitter

It was a easy mod if you have a welder. Remove the stock exhaust cut the muffler apart at the closest weld next to the header. The catalytic converter is directly next to this weld. I drilled mine out with a 1.5" hole saw. Welded it back together and reinstalled. As for the other end remove the four bolts holding the factory baffle in to the muffler.( If you look into this end of the muffler you can see the catalytic converter.) after removal of this adaptor plate I cut the baffle off of the old plate and welded it on the silent rider mounting plate. I never took any pictures. It took about a hour from start to finish. A lot less heat. Still much quieter than just the stock exhaust.
