Noisy XTZ 1000

What is that ungodly noisy whine that these prowlers make coming from the drive train? Is it a clutch whine? Something to do with the engine brake? These things are so noisy it's almost unbearable! My brother has a Wildcat 1000 with over 9000 miles on it and he plays music running down a forest road. No way you could do this with the Prowler! And I know a guy with a 650 Prowler and the same complaint! Can't run without ear plugs or you'd go deaf!!! Help please........ TIA

pad the bottom of the dog house with Dynamat available from many sources like Summit Racing , Jegs ... also behind the seats the rear wall area .. anyplace you can put it on / in will help

it will help the heat issue too ... but they are all noisy and the earlier models have lots of tranny noise.

the Wildcat engine location is better for the interior noise BY FAR

BTW .. fill in your signature line so we know what ya have year / model helps for replies

name is Gary or hey you if ya forget

2009 Prowler XTZ , couple things added here and there
'83 CJ7 / SBC + whole lot added here and there
'01 Dodge / Cummins / Dually, a ton of stuff added here and there

INSTRUCTIONS FOR THE NEWBIES ...
1. Bring in a good load of firewood for the pit
2. start the morning coffee , strong but not burnt / boiled down , IMPORTANT start it early as many of us old farts get up early !!
3. sit a spell and swap some lies with the best of us
