Postby Kodiak » Mon Dec 03, 2007 1:15 pm

No...that was water coming out of the belt housing.....not the tranny. It SHOULD be sealed.....but it's technically, not fatal to get wet...just slips.

I snorkeled mine, as mud does wreak havoc on the CVT once it gets in, causing you to need to clean and regrease the rollers. Not hard to do, just a PITA.
