LOL...yeah, the old Polaris machines run a little noisy but the trick is to always listen (and feel) for a DIFFERENT noise or vibration while not worrying about the "normal" ones. I work on (and ride) a lot of different brands and models of ATV's and SxS's but wouldn't trade my old 06 800 for any of them. I have it set up and customized just the way I like it and know every nut, bolt and screw on that thing. If I got a brand new machine tomorrow I'd have to start all over again.
