Question motor damage caused by noise suppressor

I am an 89-year-old hunter with a 2009 Rhino 450. The darn thing is so noisy that I have to turn off my hearing aids. I would like to put on a noise suppressor, but am afraid that it will cause motor damage. Do any of you guys know anything about this? I have tried online searches and even called Yamaha, but can get no info. Please advise.

By noise suppressor I am guessing you mean a BENZ Silencer? Go for it, they wont cause any harm

Hapa- ''When I checked into my motel, I said to the lady at the desk:

"I hope the porn channel in my room is disabled."

"No," she said, "it's just regular porn, you sick bastard."

Just get yourself some Rugged radios! You can listen to some music and the music fades when you have a conversation with your passanger.
