Its reassuring to hear someone suggest a baffle. That has been on my mind all summer but I haven't heard anyone else suggest it until now. There goes another project onto my to do list.

Sometimes you have to 'make it so'. Usually a piece of alum sheet works well, but you have to be careful its made so it does not vibrate or rub anything and make noise. Or you might be able to use foam depending on how hot it is. And make it so you can still access or remove it to work on anything you need to get at. Nice part is once its on there you are good to go, only have to do it once.

I ran PVC to the front of my cart it really helps, unless you follow someone close. Think its 2". I welded a muffler clamp to the frame near the gas pedal to hold it, though its pretty light anyway.

Here is what it looks like under the seat now

ETA: you'd be surprised at how much noise the high temp paint on the exhaust header and on the valve cover cut out. Noticeably quieter as well as cooler. I painted the header to cut down on the heat radiated and was pleasantly surprised at how much noise that layer of paint took out. So then I painted the rocker cover and I'm here to say that was well worth the effort as well. Much quieter engine now.

<<<< In dust like this, a foam filter would clog up in a heartbeat.

This is why I went to an external canister filter. The one that I got was too large to fit under the seat--some are smaller. You would have to be creative to make it work...

And I believe that the cooler intake air has improved performance...

If I may, Where did you get that flex hose? What inside diameter is it?

Your air filter looks good and I'm working on encasing my air filter to keep it from pulling air in from under the seat in the engine compartment. Hoping to pull the air in where the stock CC DS pulls it in from. But I need some flex hose. I bought some at the parts house but I'm not going to use it as the way its made I'm pretty sure it'll not last very long where with what you're using looks to me like its there for the long haul. My flex hose will be between the filter and the carb so any dust that enters there its lights out on the engine shortly. Too much money to take a chance on that happening. I'd rather just clean the filter as I have it mounted now every 15 hours or so of run time. If I can find a good flex hose I can change that to cleaning it once every 50 hours or so.

You could use shop-vac hose -- it's tough and I believe it's 2.5 in diameter. If you have a roof on your machine -- you could run the intake tube up the inside of a roof support and put the air filter up high.
