Default Bogging in deep snow

I have a 05 rmk 800 and I can never sidehill on the right side with it. Every time I try it Boggs and I lose all power. I put a ggb mountain can on it and jetted it down form 350 to 340 jets and have replaced the bellows. I need some help on what could be wrong.

Needs a deflector installed in the belly pan. Snow is plugging up the exhaust hole.

Also my guess. The thin aluminum flap that comes stock on it breaks off.

I think WPS has one, about 1/4" thick. I may still have the one off mine; will look tonight.

EV system (solenoid, valves, bellows, springs) could be the problem, take a look at those if you haven't already.

Runs well otherwise? Good spark on both cyls?

Did reinforce it on the inside of the belly pan... put the aluminum on the inside to keep the bolts from pulling out of the plastic. Could probably use big fender washers too.

I can ship this out if you want; it's just taking up space in my parts box.

I just fixed the deflector because it broke and I put some bigger washers on it.
