89 340 sport bogging

Hi Guys,
I'm new to the forum. I'm looking for some help diagnosing an issue with my 340 sport.
I mainly use this sled for ice fishing and have had no problems on the lakes with the throttle opened up. however, when I get back to the trail and need to slow down to navigate a turn my machine will not make enough power to get back up to speed, or even move the track. This doesn't happen very often. If i wait 5-10 minutes for it to cool, or pick up the back end, I'll have enough power to get going again.
Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

The belt isn't back shifting. There is likely ruber build up. Use a scotch bright and scrub them down, then blow them out real good. Then put a new belt on! I would also check out the springs.
