Are you considering getting an after market exhaust for the Kodiak?
Probabaly not... I want to hunt. Quiet is better... Just came across this video when searching for recent Kodiak 700 videos on youtube...

That makes a lot of sense. If anything at all, I guess that you would rather get a new exhaust that is quiet. never thought of that as a thing, but it could be very desirable for hunters.

Silencers are sold for ATV's so that would be a quick solution. Firstly though i'd suggest looking seeing and hearing it in person first then make the call on what to do.

I wonder if hunters would be interested in an electric ATV. It would be so much more quiet than a petrol powered one.

Maybe... but at what cost? We already see EV's going for nearly double the cost of a comparatively sized car... how will that translate to ATV's... will there be government incentives??

Hmm... I'm not sure how expensive it would be. I suppose that is the barrier. In the future it should be a popular choice though. I'm sure we will see one some time down the line.

I think electric ATVs are already available in the market but I'm not sure if the government will offer incentives for a cleaner ATV since it's more of a hobby vehicle than a car.

Isn't that a UTV? Granted it electric but it looks to be more for hauling things around than recreation like the Grizzly or Kodiak 700.

Check out Bad Boy Buggies. They are well made electric UTVs.

There have also been some Diesel atvs offered. Kind of a neat concept.

I prefer gas.

Sorry, got distracted by the threadjack.

I put Big Gun exhaust on my Kawasaki Brute Force. The fit and finish were very good. Installation was Curse Free! Great sound although too loud imo. Also, had to rejet my carbs, bike ran lean with the free flow.

My biggest concern was having to repack the exhaust after every 15 hours of use, per the manufacturers
instructions .....thats a pain.

Now that would be a big turn off for me, not sure if i'm ready for that.
