Riding yesterday around the Red river in SW Arkansas and made a couple of deep water (3-4 ft) crossings, noticed loss of mph and unusual increase in rpm. White smoke was blowing out of cv exhaust snorkel as well. I'm guess I got water in the clutch area? I limped it back to camp and let it sit for an hour then went back out again without any problems until I hit the water again.You guys got any ideas about this? I have Mud Ind. snorkel on a 2010 RZR with an HPD clutch kit. Thanks!

Just use some good water proof Axle grease and put it around the Seal on the clutch cover. Because the more you remove the Clutch Cover its been known that it doesnt seal as well. I really like the Lucas Brand Grease because its Water Resistant (green). So it wouldnt hurt to anything to give it a try. So good luck!!!!

Did you try removing that piece of rubber hose between the clutch housing and the snorkels (assuming your setup still has one)? If you can, remove the flexible connection, put the Rzr in neutral, and rev the engine several times. This should blow most of the water out of your clutch. housing

Thanks for the pointers guys. When I get home tomorrow I plan to remove the cover and get a look at the belt and clutches. The stealership put my clutch (HPD)on and that's got me thinking the gasket may not have been reinstalled correctly.Just guessing here tho. EPI Severe Duty belts still a good idea?

Yes EPI is the way to go.

I can't tell that EPI is any better than the gates PL30071. I hve had good luck in the past with the gates but just tried an EPI and only got approx. 200 miles out of it. Just my .02
