If you have recently brought home a Polaris Ranger Crew and notice a hot smell and scorched muffler, do not be alarmed. This is a normal part of the muffler breaking in. However, if the smell persists and the tailpipe overheats, there may be an issue. Before purchasing a new aftermarket muffler or exhaust system, try removing the spark arrestor bolt at the end of the tailpipe. If any insulation comes out with the spark arrestor, it may have broken loose and be flaking off inside the muffler. If this is the case, it's best to get your muffler inspected by a mechanic. Keep in mind that the smell and discoloration of the muffler is completely normal during the break-in period.

As a Polaris Crew owner, you may hear some unusual sounds coming from your exhaust, muffler, or OEM silencer. One possible culprit behind these sounds is the spark arrestor, which tends to rattle if it becomes loose. However, if you notice that your exhaust seems to be falling apart inside, you may be covered by the federally mandated emissions warranty that extends up to 500 hours of use. This warranty applies to the Crew exhaust, and you will need to go through a dealer to claim it. By doing so, you can avoid buying a new $350 OEM silencer, muffler, or exhaust, which can be a substantial expense.

If you decide to upgrade to an aftermarket exhaust, it may be worth considering re-flashing or tuning your Crew's electronic control unit (ECU). By doing this, you can ensure that all of your aftermarket parts are functioning in unison, allowing you to use them to their full potential. At Everything Polaris Ranger, we can help guide you in the right direction as you navigate the process of upgrading your exhaust or addressing any issues with your stock Polaris Crew exhaust.

It is important to note that upgrading to an aftermarket exhaust can have a significant impact on your vehicle's performance. Aftermarket exhausts are typically designed to increase horsepower and torque, which can lead to a more powerful, faster ride. Additionally, aftermarket exhausts can improve your vehicle's sound quality, giving it a more aggressive, sporty tone. However, it is important to select an exhaust that is compatible with your vehicle and that has been designed to meet your specific needs.

Ultimately, whether you are experiencing issues with your stock Polaris Crew exhaust or are simply looking to upgrade to an aftermarket exhaust, we are here to help. We can provide you with the guidance, support, and expertise you need to make informed decisions about your vehicle. So why wait?
