Cracked head pipe

My Rhino started backfiring a couple months ago every so often when I let of the throttle so I changed the fuel filter and then the exhaust donut because it had a small leak. Well that didn't help so I got checking a little more yesterday and found the head pipe cracked a few inches from the head. I took it off today and welded it up so I can still plow with it until I get a new one ordered in. The Rhino is an '07 with 3000km on it.......is this a common problem with the Rhinos or is it just my shitty luck

I could only guess that plowing in the snow might be your problem. Being that hot then having ice hit the pipe is no good.

Its fairly common.... what mods have you done? its possibly running lean which would explain the high exhaust temps causing the crack.

The only mods are a Dynatek CDI and a billet intake flange and filter (Uni Filter)
