Clutch breather noise in cab

I picked up my new 2017 Viking with DFK hard cab yesterday. I had the dealer soundproof the machine. I'm still getting a lot of noise that is coming through what I believe is the clutch breather behind driver seat. I put my hand over the open hole at bottom of breather tube and noise basically goes away. Any fix for this without restricting airflow?

Welcome! That is certainly one of the noisy parts. I've noticed my viking seems louder with the enclosure installed. Not sure why.

Maybe someone with snorkles can comment on how they affected the noise.

I blame Rob and James for making me need new tires & safety harnesses.

Don't have a hard cab but noise level went through the roof when I snorkeled it.

You could snorkel it straight out the back like an exhaust pipe to help with the noise, you might need to put an inline blower into the line to make sure you keep the airflow up.
