The pictures are the belt drive exhaust blowing across the exhaust pipe and muffler. The intake is up under the forward part of the bed behind the drivers seat. It is like the Viking but maybe a little higher and protected a bit better from dust. If the grease turns to sludge too soon I will cut the bed and move the intake up under the roof like I did on my Rhino 700. At 5,000 miles there was no sludge build up. Just time for a new belt, rollers, and guides. Oh and new grease.

Bob, thank you for clarifying the belt drive "exhaust" for me. I was hoping you would chime in on this subject. I am glad to hear it is exhaust and not intake and that makes me feel much better. Thanks for the education. Keep us posted if you do decide to make the mod for the intake.

The owners manual gives a water depth, it may be around 15 inches not sure. Here are some pictures of the belt drive intake. The bed covers the intake and the plastic covers box it in pretty good. The bed will reduce the engine noise too. Its easy to remove the bed and its really light weight for one person to lift it off.

That's what I was thinking as a gauge, if the water level rises to your seat don't go any farther. I use that rule on my 570 even though the intakes are up about my shoulders. I don't like wet butt!

Nice Pics!! Thanks so much, looks like your butt is going to be wet long before the belt gets wet. That is fine for me. Manual says 15" but this is actually much better than that.
