I installed the Benz Silent Rider on my Yamaha Rhino 450 and it made it 50%+ quiter. My hunting buddy and I used to have to yell over the engine noise to talk but not any more. It was one of the best mods I have done on the Rhino. 2cents
You can see it in the picture in my signature.

Sure, nothing to it. If you go with Benz when you tell them your model they should tell you if you need an adaptor between the stock muffler and the Benz. All I had to do is remove the 3 screws that held the OEM muffler exhaust tip, remove the spark arrester, screw the Benz straight tip on the OEM muffler with the 3 screws and drill a couple holes for the two hanger arms. Took me all of 20 min.
Google Benz Silent Rider and they have a video about the noise reduction and the install.

Here you go, this is the Benz silencer installed on a Honda Big Red. Didn't even have to drill any holes for the Big red, took me about 30 min.

Thanks, I am pretty happy with it. Makes it a lot easier to talk while driving now. It is real quiet if you go slow.

do you think it would quiet it enough to night stalk hogs with night vision without spooking them? it would be cheaper than a golf cart for sure.

Mine helped a lot but you still cant sneak up on stuff. Once i git the exhaust sound down, I realized how much moise the engine itself makes. It seems to me that engine noise really spooks critters. Even though my golf cart squeaks and bumps, I can sneak up on stuff with it.

Yeah, maybe on the very top end, but not on the bottom end. But it will still bounce of the speed limiter with no problem.
