I've got a 1987 Phazer which I really really enjoy (500 miles on it this season alone and heading back to the U.P. with it next week) The only complaint I've got is that way too much snow gets kicked up and around the back stock snowflap. Every time I stop my coat is all snowy and wet. Plus my tailight is rarely visible due to snowpack.
Has anyone found a cure to this problem?
Thanks for the help!

no such thing as too much snow!

do you mean to say your track actually spits it up at you while your riding?

haha ive never heard of a problem like that before, but you must had a nice track.

It isn't coming from the track, as you ride, you create low pressure, behind you like a boat wake, but in the air. then it sucks snow to your back.

i didnt take physics, but it still just seems odd to me because ive never met anyone thats had this happen to them.

staying out of powder helps, also slowing down. spinning track also creates more. Its normal. I always have to clean off my tail light after a while. The snowflap is in good condition, correct?

Just look behind you, you can see the snow swirl over the ground. Some of the swirls hit you and stick.
