You can try Pam from the kitchen, Fluid Film works too I hear. I know hard core snow shovelers wax their shovels so the snow slides off easy.

I guess I read that wrong. I thought you where saying that your inner fender wells where building up with snow. Bogging down like an electrical issue? Dielectric grease on your electrical connections may solve the issue.
I love winter riding, I have never had issues with snow around the engine, it usually melts pretty quick.

Strange, This year I have been using my 550 on the lake for ice fishing and it has been in slush and snow with -30c out and not a glitch..Maybe snow blocking the air box some how???

Ya i dunno like the first time i took it out it had lots of slush n no issue on a minus 30 day and the last bad wind going thru the drifts seem to bog it down like i was sayin.

on very cold days the snow is very fine like powder..so its very easy to be sucked in the air intake....I had it happen to my truck one time....took awhile to figure it out....

Snow dust is a common issue with snowmobiles and it will sneak in every where and cause issues.

Ya that seems to be the issue cause it did it to me yesterday. Im still wondering tho if there are aftermarket inner wheel well fenders to stop snow from fillin up in engine compartment. So i atleast dont have to thaw my bike out every night after icefishing
