How many Hours has YOUR cvt belt run?

I think some guys out there are getting decent hours on cvt belts w/out failure. How many hours have YOU got and how hard do you run? In what terrain? Please go easy on the 3 hours and it blew stories-we all know a well adjusted factory belt blown in 3 hours requires outside help such as Budweiser, Tequila, 60+ Horsepower, or a 12 year old driver.
Looking for some common factors for guys w/ long cvt belt life.
My own experience compares my cvt belt to tires-If I do lots of "burnouts" I pay the price.
I'm at 70 hrs ...YOU?

I'm at 129 hrs, with one adjustment (took out thick shim) at about 80 hrs.
cdi, 27" bighorns, dalton clutch kit at about 100 hrs. I ride it hard, and crawl quite a bit with it. Mountanous terrain, rocky trails, no thick mud.

85 hours and never been touched yet. Waiting for it to blow up but hasn't done so, ride it hard, lots of mud, trail riding, hill climbing, pulling heavy trailer... no problems yet, just started chattering when starting off but only if going slow, hit the gas hard and go, no problems. I think the problems start if you don't give that little extra of throttle off the start, give it gas and get it to engage good and no problems. Dalton is going in this weekend so can't report anymore after that.

30 minute cvt belt change!

I just read this on another site, To change a kawasaki teryx cvt belt in a hurry remove the cvt cover, place a wrench on the driven pulley nut and turn clockwise while lifting up on the cvt belt...this will compress the springs and allow belt removal. Block the clutch open with a soft piece of wood. install the new belt. remove the wood .
YOUR DONE!! NO PULLEY OR CLUTCH REMOVAL!!
This may not be how I would try it in my garage, but it could certainly save a weekend.
Has anyone tried this?

Yes, you can do that... You can do this on any CVT. Just have to pull the belt down in the secondary and just roll it over the primary.
