Thumbs down CVT Belt

I have 35 hours on my Teryx and it's time for a new CVT Belt (It started going bad at 30). Since the stock component won't last I will be upgrading to the heavy duty belt. However, I was wondering if there was a (simple) way to help protect the CVT Belt from sand, mud, water, etc. w/o giving up performance?

Put a clutch kit in it. The stock system doesn't have the correct belt tension and this causes premature belt failure. Both the EPI and the Dalton kits address this issue. We sell and use the EPI kits in our own Teryxs.

I saw this CVT intake filter available for the Rhino, is something similar available for the Teryx? Would it do any good and be worth the money?
