I paid 60 plus tax at a dealer. Worth every penny.

I got it for free when I bought my Viking back in December of last year.

I mentioned to the dealer that the 2015 models would come equipped with the kit from the factory, free of charge.... And they said no problem, we'll order one for you, free of charge.

May be worth a try. But, even if I had to pay, I would gladly do so, it's definitely worth it.

Definitely need to get it. It's worth every penny and you'll save yourself a lot of time installing it if when you get the kit you just throw the instructions away because they are pretty shitty.

tell me again why we installed a sound dampening kit and then a Yoshi? LOL!!!!!
I was thinking about that very thing not long ago. I spent about 500 bucks in trying to make it quiet. Then i was so happy that i could talk on my phone while riding and i could sneak up on deer. Then i listen to you and spend 400 on the yoshi making my viking the loudest thing in the woods and completely negating everything i did to make it quiet. I do like it though. It sounds like a beast. :)

Because there is good noise, and there is bad noise!
Buck your right. There is good noise and bad noise....And then theres Yoshi noise, which is awesome but it will probably make me go deaf. But itll be sooo worth it :)

I have one on my 2014, and it does help a good bit. I think it is well worth it. I paid $77.00 for the kit and my dealer charge $35.00 to install it. Also get the floor mats their great. You can buy a lot of the extra's on line, and not pay tax or shipping. Discounts from 30-40%

Called my dealer after my 2015 showed up without the kit installed. Thanks to everyone on here, they ordered it and I picked it up yesterday afternoon. After looking at instructions, it was clear they were originally written in Japanese and then translated. Threw them aside and two beers later, everything was installed. What a noticeable difference. I have a Skull Candy Bluetooth strapped to the center of the roof in the cab and I can hear it now. I did make a slight mod to the back bulkhead. It sounded like it rattled a bit on the ends, so I added a few extra tie-wraps to keep the end tabs from vibrating.
