You might be getting water in the vent hole if you're washing your sled under the hood. I just take a little piece of masking tape and cover the hole while I wash the sled, then remove it when I'm done. The vent hole is just below and behind the filler hole.
i changed the fluid and went out and rode sled. I still have the prob and i hadent washed it since i put in new fluid dealer said it was the bearing and seal on lower gear going out . Gonna check it out today.
dont ask me thats just what they said looked at it last nite with a mirror and it ahs a slight amount of oil on the outside of the bearing. There is no puddle of oil under the sled, maybe it is only when the sled is in motion when the water gets into it
It's called condensation. Every time you ride your sled, the oil warms up and cools off. It's actually worse if you leave your sled outside. Mainecat is right.... Shock oil looks the same after one season.
