What are the defects?

Vehicles with a track kit used in the snow may experience overheating of the drive belt, or the drive belt breaking into pieces and the stock Continuously Variable Transmission (CVT) air intake becoming completely obstructed by snow.

What are the hazards?

If the vehicle is obstructed by snow, at high load the drive belt could overheat, break into pieces and start a fire from the CVT enclosure. This could result in serious property damage, injuries or death.

What should consumers do?

BRP recommends that consumers inspect the CVT intake in deep snow conditions to ensure a blockage does not exist. If blockage does exist, consumers should carefully clean the snow from the filter.

For consumers with track kits for use in snow, BRP will refund or pay for the installation of a CVT air intake relocating kit.

For more information, consumers can contact BRP by phone on 1800 531 996 or via email
