Has anyone experienced their belt slipping while riding in deep powder? I had concerns with the air induction system, which wasn't a problem, because I couldn't go that far in deep snow since the belt racheted, causing an obvious complete lack of power!

are you sure it was your belt, it could have been the track, check your track tension

IF YOU BELT IS SLIPPING YOU SHOULD GET A WIFF OF BURNT RUBBER. YOU MENTIONED RACHETING- THAT IS WHAT A TRACK WILL DO WHEN IT IS WAY TOO LOSE

The first fix was a hood screen which caused me to think that maybe they sould be included with the sled, I spent more than $7500.00 on a SNOWmobile and it won't go through snow unless I accessorize. I have put the screens in (Thank you to my dealer), but I haven't had the snow to fully test it. I was wondering if anyone else had the same problem. Being so late I may not get a chance to run it through 18 inches of powder this year.

I checked the track and that was within spec.

Hundred mile tape works just great over the clutch vents, if it warms up above -15C I take it off and live with the slippage, it does not happen as much now that I put on 53g notched wieghts.

Did you take anything apart on your sled at some point? A friend of mine spilled anti-freeze on his belt and it slipped constantly. This tends to happen with a lot of liquids except water even if you dry it off. SO basically if you spill anti freeze or something on it, its junk. I know you said it only happens in powder but just tryin to help out
