Yes you will have to remove the the air filter housing, but it's not a big deal.

Re: Servicing an XP900,

I have a vague recollection of reading where someone sprayed ether or starter fluid around the area of the boots, while the engine is running, to determine if there was a leak. Or did I dream this also?

That would work, RPMs would rise if there is a leak.

I did all these suggestions and glad I did. Ended up with new front diff gear oil all over the place when refilling, the capacity is so little and I poured toooo much in the funnel.

I was able to pull the belt cover completely off without removing the shock mount. There is one specific spot and way you can get the cover completely off and it makes the job easier than having the cover in the way. When I did blow out the clutches and belt housing, a lot of grey-ish dust went flying. I would guess that to be the norm for a used 900 XP? (no chunks or belt pieces whatsoever). Belt looked good, like the new one I have in the package which was surprising.
