rain water leaked into belt box

I left my 570 uncovered when it rained a couple days ago. I got on it yesterday to ride it around the yard. Backed up fine down the hill but when I put in in low it wouldnt go. Drained the box and dried the belt. All was good. I went looking for where the leak could be coming from and found that the boot where the snorkle is seperated under the boot was leaking bad. The water will sit down in the snorkle until you move and then it dumps into the belt box. Has anyone else had a problem with this? Im going to seal it up. It wouldnt hurt to check your snorkle boots under the seat to see if yours will leak as well. I dont know anyone close to see if my boot was put on wrong or if it something that may be an issue

That's crazy. Might want to check other connections and bolts ect on the machine in case you got a Friday model.

Mine did the same thing when I washed it. Didn't notice the boot was off. Needs a clamp on it. I'm going to put a couple zip ties on it.

zip ties will help. I thought of that as well. i think ill try that with a little sealant just for some extra protection.

I just got a new 570EFI about 2 weeks ago. Had it out twice on an dirt road that has some water on it in spots. No wheres did the water go over the floor boards... Brought the bike home and washed it and went to drive it into my shed and it started slipping even when revving at 3000RPM. Did you end up solving the problem? I think it may have been the wash that did it.

I washed mine good with the hose once and soaked it thoroughly. Then last Thursday and Friday I camped and it was in the rain - almost continuously. I didn't have a bit of trouble.

It is home and dry in the garage now, but I'm going to check it over good to make sure nothing like this could happen.

I litterally just took mine back to the dealership. I think my clutch cover is warped or something. I'll keep you posted on the situation. Thanks for the input

mine always slips with water after a wash. IDK why it leaks so bad. I tried everything with that boot but its simply not big enough. It hardly holds both of those tubes. Serious design flaw polaris.

I hear ya. I think I'm going to silicone the whole system down the road... If worse comes to worse you can just peal off the silicone.
