I was at turnagain yesterday and everytime I would get snow over the cowling the engine would run out of power and act like it was gonna die.
I have 2 theorys as to why this happens. One snow gets on the exhaust pipe. and 2 the snow blocks the air intake into the engine.
My sled does a good job of plowing through the snow as long as the engine has its power.
Sled is a 2000 rmk 800. Running 400 and 380 jets. But its not a jet problem. Sled only acts up when snow is on cowling
