2015 Sportsman 850 CVT question

Recommended Posts

What is the best method to keep water out of the CVT casing? When I first got it, I do not recall the belt slipping that much, but after a few hundred hours it seems to be happening more and more.

Are there snorkel kits made for this?

Water  in the case will  make the belt slip,  but   if you  have a few hundred hours on the  belt  I would say the slippage  is more due to  belt wear..   As the  clutches  drive on the sides of the  belt,  they wear it  narrower and  glaze it .

 The  narrowing  and glazing  reduces  the  grip  the    clutches  have  on the belt.  Not  only does  that  increase  slippage , but it reduces both  the  top  speed  and low speed pulling  power.
