When I start driving in deep snow my sled starts to bog but if I lift my hood for about 10 sec.s it will go away. I have tapped up all of my vents in the front so I am pretty sure it's not steam. Someone told me it couls be exhaust leak. Is that possible?
Yeah, Viper's have had some snow ingestion problems. On my brothers, if he's ridding at the back of the pack in soft snow conditions, all the snow dust will enter the air induction vents and collect and freeze on the foam at the top of the air box. This causes a bogg in the sled. As soon as he cleans the filter off and dries it......it clears the bogg right up.
I don't know if they make this for your sled or not, but you could probably put your own on. On my sled its got a piece of metal right in front of the exhaust hole to keep snow out, you could try that.
