    Silent Rider review

    I have a 625i Gator (all stock) that is too loud to suit me..I am considering getting a Benz Silent Rider..Anyone tried one or another method for making my Gator quieter? Thanks

    Simple installation and bed will still lift....I just don't know how much it really muffles..I'm so bothered by the noise I'm considering selling the Gator..

    What's about earmuffs?! Or a helmet? A Gator means to much fun to sell it

    I often wear molded ear plugs but those are a hassle..On another subject I'm a little disappointed that I have two broken rubber boots.. Is there a way to keep those u joints greased without replacing the boots?

    From what I've read the 625 is a noisy beast.
    How old is it? I think the newer ones are better.

    Years ago when I was in the commercial tire business we had 16 hp. Kohler motors on our compressors for our service trucks that were very loud until we fitted them with mufflers from old reefer units off of trailers. It really quieted them down.

    no disrespect but you are comparing Apples and Grapefruit.... That mule compares to the 825I Not the 625... spend enough money and you can get a fully glass cabbed up 825I gator with the quiet kit that is reasonably quiet.and very enjoyable
