PVT outlet duct

Hey all!

Has anyone, other then me, had a problem with water getting into their clutch case?

I suspect its coming from the PVT outlet duct, due to the fact that the manual says its located under the right rear wheel well.

WHERE IS IT!!!

I have looked a few times and couldn't find it. Whats it for?? I was under the impression the intake and exhaust of the clutch was in the same spot as the intake for the engine and the clutch... no?

If the above is not true, and im getting my water from the outlet duct, then the snorkel kit would abolish this problem yes?

Thanks everyone
(if you couldnt tell, I have no experience with 4x4's.. I'm a racing quad guy)

Re: PVT outlet duct

The outlet is in the center of the rear bed at the very top right behind the access panel behind the seats, you have to kind of look from the corner of the rear of the machine and look up and too the front, it's not huge and shouldn't let water in while the machine is running as the air is getting blown out, unless your driving in some deep water I would suspect, you can get some in there if you pressure wash the engine, I just use a plastic bag and shove it in there till I am done washing.

Re: PVT outlet duct

I have gotten water into my clutch case while driving through water that wasn't over the wheels, as well as water over the wheels.

How do any of you go about fixing this? or is an outlet snorkle my only fix?

When I did travel through the waters I was on the gas the whole time (not perfectly steady, but of course always above 3500rpm and in L gear).

Re: PVT outlet duct

It must be the deep water that does it. I've been in some wet conditions, and get water in my BTI air canister quite regulary until I improved the sealing... but my belt stays dry and I've inspected it after every wet ride because quite a few have reported water in there. I've had a huge bow wave at the front and water gushing in through the pedal box, but have only been deep enough to have water just about coming in from the sides. Polaris do say on the video not to go deeper than the base point of the bodywork, which led me to believe it just leaks in through the case - but my experience is it's sealed well enough. Maybe if you are sitting in deep water for minutes at a time it's a different matter - but I've tried to keep moving as you have. If you're going to be in moderate to deep water a lot it makes sense to snorkle it anyway... if you're not far off the engine intake one small but significant underwater "pot hole" could just tip you deep enough to injest water - and well... there's no point worrying about dust through your stock filter if you're going to take that chance.

Re: PVT outlet duct

What is the reason for this vent to connect to the engine block? Would this not put dust into my engine oil and water if the clutch housing fills up? When water goes into the engine block from here where does it go or how do you empty it after emptying the clutch housing?

Thanks.
