From everything I read I understand its probably better to oil your filter pull snorkel adaptor off ziptie cheese cloth or some other kind of pre-filter there and just patch the hole rather than snorkelling

I was at my yamaha dealer in Maine last week and he was showing me the Chinese
Rhino Clone called a Beneche.
He said he does repairs on them, and Rhino parts are a total bolt on repair. What
I liked though was silent exhaust add on. It appeared to be an additional exhaust
that pipes directly to the original. It appealed to me as mine is generally used for
hunting.

I have also been checking out the rhino clone the Odes 800. It's got the 800 can am engine and looks tuff with a lot of power. They also have a 4 seater. Comes with j strong half doors. Sliding and reclining seats and EFi.

The Beneche I was refering to looks exactly like a Rhino, and it had the
700fi engine in it. The aftermarket parts look to be more than Yamaha
has. I also liked it split windshield. Inside it was no different.

From what I'm hearing the Yamaha Viking is a lot quieter than the Rhino. I would think it would be since the Viking's engine is behind the cab not under the seats LOL.

You'll just have to go buy a new machine.

Just thought I would add my experience. I used some closed cell insulation with radiant barrier on both sides to line the engine cover. I removed the stock intake snorkel. I used the same insulation to fill between the bed and the cab. I a bought a cheap muffler and added it in series with the stocker with pieces and parts from autozone. All of these mods put together made my rhino significantly quieter. I can now talk to the person in the passenger seat while riding. No change in performance. Didn't cost much and only took a couple of hours. Best mods so far.

Thumbs ~ and any one else using spray adhesive To reapply sound deadening (felt) read the can instructions most recommend for permanent adhesion. applying a coat to bother surfaces and waiting a few mins for surfaces to "tact" this greatly helps the sticky!

I have a Benz Silent Rider muffler, Cool-It mat over the complete engine and over the muffler under the bed and a Ryde On dust guard. All together it makes a huge difference in sound, dust and heat in the cab. I also have a roof, full windshield and clear vinyl back glass.

What muffler did you use?

Just wanted to give my update. I installed the 1" sound and heat foam under console and ryde on dust guard. Huge improvement. Almost like riding in truck with windows down. The dust cover and rear window blocks out exhaust noise also. As far as dust I'll have to get back. Been under tropical storm here in Panama City so not much dust around.
Clemebone, do you still have the same Rhino and if so how is the 1" sound and heat foam under console holding up? This past Friday I installed the Ryde-on dust cover on our 2005 Rhino. It most definitely reduced the dust but causing the motor to overheat. U removed the dust cover and did not experience any overheating issue. This is really disappointing as I was really looking forward to riding almost dust free. The bulk of the heat seamed to be directly under the console when the dust guard was installed.

First time I've heard the dust guard causing a heat problem. Did your temp light come on or if a temp gauge what was the reading?

Temperature light came on. I removed the Ryde-On Dust cover and did the same amount of rider as I did with the cover on but the temperature light did not come on once the cover was removed. I do not have a temperature gauge but plan on installing one myself once I find a good How-To video.
