Belt replacement

I was wondering when to change my belt. I have 75 hours on the stock belt. I have run the cvt filter for half the time. I just dont want to break it in the field, for obvious reasons. What is the easiest way to get the belt off. Is there a video for replacement.

I will take a look for you...I know where have clutch installation videos which will actually show you how to get to the belt.

Bottom line, you will need to remove the fuel tank and CVT cover, once that is done, you will see the belt

75 hours is not too many hours on a belt. Just keep it adjusted.

Go to our site and then to the clutch kit ad or description in the Teryx section, there you will find install videos which covers the belt.

i got to checking the belt deflection according to the manuel and by watching todds video. i'm curious to see if i'm doing it right. i came up with 2 inches although when i drive it , it doesnt seem to be slipping and there is no smell. i took the inspection cover off held the stick at 90 dgs and applied pressure down. i didnt get crazy , used just 1 finger.

another easy way to check deflection is by looking to see if the belt is just barely sticking above the 2 sheeve plates on the secondary...its tricky to see in the inspection window but you will be looking for the pulley on the left side...the cogs on top of the belt should be about 1/16" of an inch or flush with the sheeves..anything lower is too loose...

What he said!!

If you got 2" I would adjust it before it does cause you problems.

by adjust it, do you mean to take the washers out on the driven pulley. will that give me enough.

If I take the thin shim out... how much of a difference does it make on tightening the belt???? My belt is just about even with the sheave.

It can make a pretty significant different. I had about the same amount of play and I was skeptical that it would do much (that shim is very thin), but it seemed to have dialed in the clutch perfectly. It runs better than when new.

fattnassty,

Yeah, I meant take the one of the shims out.

Cuzineddie,

If it is below it might need adjustment. Needs to be even or slightly above.
