I was wondering what is the best thing to stuff into the end of your exhaust pipe hole and airbox inlet hole to stop mice and other pesky thing from going into them.

Yes, steel wool is good for chewing critters, also Bounce Dryer softener sheets they say are good to keep critters out of your sled, place them in and around the engine compartment to repell critters...I guess they don't like the smell.

I use that spray foam insulation. Works great for keeping mice and other rodents out but quite the project to remove in the fall.

My mother-in-law uses the dryer softener sheets on sticks out in her garden to keep the deer away. I thought she was crazy, but hey, if it works...

Steel Wool..... It's easy to put in, and take out.... No dissassembly etc. etc... As for using "great Stuff foam" .... that sounds like a nightmare!

I'd like to add that Moth Balls also work in keeping mice away, or from chewing up your seat. It's the smell. This is the first year i forgot to throw some moth balls around my sled, and sure as he!!, in one month of storage, i ALREADY had a mouse nest in my engine bay! I pulled it all out, threw in some moth balls and problem solved.
