I've done some research on this and know a lot of people have had issues but... The bike shouldn't get any water in it until it's submerged up to the tank. My mother had a 2001 400 sportsman that thing was always bone dry.

Dealership just called and they claim one of the clamps on the lots needed to be adjusted... It's kind of funny since I had these all off and re did them myself. I'm assuming it was the top of the snorkel that connects to the rear of the clutch/belt box. I'll keep you posted as to weather I get any water in it or not.

Its the snorkel tube where it splits under the seat so you can access the top of the motor. I used blue rtv and zip ties. I can spray it with water directly and no water in my belt box now. The blue rtv will clean off easy for when you service the bike. A coupel more zip ties and more rtv it will seal right back up. It is a design flaw. The boot is way too short and doesnt fit well. Hopefully they will fix this in the future but for now i'll seal it up

Thank you...I will be sure to check it out. Already had a coolant leak from the temp sensor (I assumed that is what it was) not being fully tightened...so its good to see others with some issues, what they are and what they are doing to fix them.

Got the bike back from the dealership today. They claim it was the top part of that snorkel. Someone didn't put the zip ties on it. I'm still not convinced since I had the entire clutch/belt box apart (shhhh don't tell the dealership) when I had the box apart there was some small rocks and dirt in at the bottom of the seal.

Has anyone else noticed a gap in their clutch/belt box? And if you've taken it apart has there been dirt in the seal?

Sportsman 570 touring.

I have had the same issue. My 570 is only 30 days old. I took it back to dealer today and was told that the seal on belt box was not installed properly at factory. They told me they would replace it and that should fix issue. I could not find any other places that we're not perfectly sealed. I will let everyone know when I get it back from dealer.

I'm going to see how it holds up and take it back again if it persists. Down the road I'll probably just silicone the whole system since you can just peel it off when you need to take it apart.
