I'm jealous! You have the best of both worlds.They all make some noise. It's motor, trans, CVT, exhaust isn't like a car where you are separated by metal and a bunch of sound deadening material. Motor is exposed and you are only separated from it by some plastic. Overall, the wolverine is pretty quiet and I have noticed that the belt whine has lessened as it was broken in.
I have a 2r exhaust tip so I hear the exhaust over everything else pretty much. The YXZ is just a bit quieter but the motor/exhaust makes more noise. Took the spark arrestor off the YXZ and holy crap that thing screams and it much louder than the Wolverine's exhaust. Probably be putting it back on the YXZ. LOL
