Belt issues

Hey guys looking for some advise on how to keep my belt from sliping seem like evertime I get stuck the belt starts sliping. I know that reverse is really bad but it even does it in low

It may be time to check your belt deflection.

You should go to the hunterworks website and watch the helpful video on this subject. He shows how to check deflection and how to take out a shim or change belt, if this is what you need.

Very easy way to check it and the way I do it now is to remove the CVT exhaust and look at the belt thru the hole as it sits in secondary sheave. If it is down in the sheave then it needs adjusting. Even or slightly above your good to go.

You're going to get lots of opinions on this. Mine is OEM or the EPI severe duty buy no other belt. We have good look with both.

Of course we sell the EPI severe duty and we have a pic on our Facebook fan page right now of a OEM belt with a chunk out for not apparent reason

I highly recommend the Dalton, it is the only one we will sell. It will give a seat of pants change and prolong belt life.

We have a clutch kit combo with tools, kit and a belt which can save you a few bucks
