Crappie day at the beach!

Well everyone knows how much work it is to go camping, getting ready, loading toys etc. We got to Pismo got a great spot, right by the water. Unloaded, set up camp, was ready to take the 840 out hunting those smaller side by sides. Did a tour of the fence line, comp hill and then headed back to camp for some BBQ. Driving back on sand highway doing about 40mph just cruising, enjoying the ocean view then........the teryx felt like it went into neutral and revved to the moon. the worst part was getting towed back to camp!
We played with the linkage a bit but that wasnt the problem. Thinking the worst case scenario (gears) we pushed it back in the trailer and were immeadiatly bored.
Well got it home and started to take it apart. Looked in the clutch inspection cover and found a shreaded belt..YES i was happy! Not the gear set. Trying to decide which belt to buy to replace the shreaded one?

Install a new stock belt, run it for a couple of hours and then adjust the belt tension.
