If you own a Polaris Ranger Crew, particularly a Northstar Crew, you may have noticed a lot of engine noise coming from under the rear seat. While the performance of the engine may be great, the noise can be a distraction and annoyance to riders. This problem arises because the Polaris Ranger Crew does not come with enough noise-canceling foam from the factory, unlike the 900 kit. In fact, some riders have even admitted to wearing earplugs because of the noise.
Thankfully, there are easy and affordable ways to soundproof your engine. One option is to use self-adhesive strips called Boom Mat, which can be wrapped behind all the plastic under the seats. By pulling out the storage containers under the seats and wrapping them in Boom Mat, you can significantly reduce engine noise. Another option is to use spray-on soundproofing, which can work exceptionally well on the Ranger Crew. However, be careful not to spray the solution in all the crevices and turns under the plastic, as it may be hard to remove if you want to take it apart. Spraying only the back of the plastic and avoiding the seams should suffice.
If you're already taking your bike apart for maintenance, it may be worth soundproofing the engine to eliminate the noise altogether.
