Because of their position on the undercarriage, stock UTV exhaust systems are subject to a great deal of damage -- be it from impacts, rust, or corrosion. For this reason, many riders find it necessary to replace the broken OEM Polaris Ranger exhaust on their machine. It doesn’t matter if you have a Polaris Ranger Crew, Crew 1000, or 900 XP Crew, no Polaris Ranger exhaust-- or any side-by-side exhaust system for that matter -- is invulnerable. And when it comes to replacing factory side by side exhaust systems, aftermarket off-brand exhausts, for the most part, are far superior to their stock counterparts in terms of weight, performance enhancement, and even aesthetic appeal. Side by side companies like HMF, Sparks, Yoshimura, and Dragonfire are consistently coming out with newer and better UTV exhaust models that pick up more horsepower throughout the power curve, add torque, and refine the airflow to transform the sound output of the entire engine system.
While increased horsepower and torque are generally accepted as a good thing by most riders, the “noisiness” of a machine is of particular importance to hunters, wildlife photographers, and low-impact riders who want to do as little damage as possible while exploring the splendors of mother nature. While softer side by side tires can reduce ground noise and lubricated components can get rid of squeaking and knocking sounds, the single most effective way to reduce the decibel discharge of your Polaris Ranger Crew is with a muffler and exhaust system specifically designed for that very purpose. Alternatively, there are also Polaris Ranger exhausts and exhaust-related aftermarket accessories made to be as loud and annoying as possible. Either way, at Everything Polaris Ranger, you’re sure to find the right exhaust system that meets the needs of you and your Polaris Ranger Crew.
