You should only turn on the carb heaters if you having icing issues, running them on all the time can cause the vapor locking in the carbs

Carb heaters are off. It's never thrown an engine code or gone into limp mode.
He checked the can, he said he didn't see any issues there. He also looked over the wiring harness and couldn't see anywhere it had been rubbing on anything. Somebody said that the issue could be in his primary, but seriously this damn sled only has 600 miles on it AND has been to the dealer more times than I'd care to count. I think he put 400-500 miles on a demo sled last season while they tried to sort his out.

One little thing I've seen that might cause this is anything that allows snow/dust/water on the belt or clutches.....make sure the 1" plastic plug just forward of the primary is not missing, that all vents on clutch side have flowrite material on them....no cheese grader style vents! Make sure there is no hole in the side panel from the clutch hitting it....silicone or patch if there is a hole.
If any water gets in there it will slip, allow it to overrev and by the description of what is happening it sounds like it MIGHT simply be hitting the rev limiter??
Pull the clutch and check PTO runout. Pull the primary apart and make sure everything is perfect. Might be low miles, but anything is possible.

On the 08 there were recalls for a ground wire under fuel tank. Rubbing from vibration.

Wire harness. Tail light.

Mine was acting up spitting and fartin. They replaced the instrument gauge cluster. And reflashed it. Fixed it. It would read lynx instead of ski doo on it.

Loose plug wire at coil. That plastic clip that hold both wires broke maybe.

If clutching is way off it might be hitting rev limiter as WB said

Watch RPMs when it falls on its face, do not exceed 8200

By the way, I ride with carb heat on 100% of the time - no problems

I also have a 2010 xp. I was experiencing a pretty bad bog when I was half throttle until I put my carb heaters on. Then the issue went away. Mines heavily vented, put the 2012 clutch guard on and have a 1000 plus miles on my original belt. And these are are deep snow/mountain miles. Pretty happy overall with the sled.

Hitting the rev limiter at 1/4 throttle??? Somehow I doubt that.
The dealer has his sled AGAIN and is going to attempt to find a problem AGAIN.
