I can't answer for everyone but for me no, under normal driving conditions no but if you are in the muskeg and get deep you can get the vegetation flow into and over parts of the engine and if it got on the exhaust components than it could start to smolder and catch fire. After every deep trip its a good idea to pick off as much of the muskeg by hand and do a wash/rinse of the engine/transmission area with a garden hose, not a high pressure washer to remove the remaining material as well as check the oil cooler and the radiator.😉

The problem is that there is no fender wells on the machine so it throws everything on the motor. They need to do a recall and fabricate some fender wells for the machines that prevent that.
