Drive-belt questions

Only have around 30 hrs on mine, but since day one I notice what seems to be a little slipping when starting off in high, accompanied by a little noise. Don't feel like it's an issue beacuse if you slam the throttle it doesn't slip. I see that alot of you say that the delfection needs to be set even though it's not recommended until the 200hr mark. Should I be worried about it? Dealer isn't going to do it for free based on the maintenance guidlines and I don't want them messing with it if not necessary. Thanks in advance for your help!

Nope, it actually shows 200 hours. Crazy eh?

To he honest with you Todd...I could have swore that I read in the manual that it was 20 hours, but I verified in three places that it is in fact 200 hours.

Nonetheless, it is a good thing to check occassionally to prolong the life of your belt.

I have been reading about everyone having to adjust the belt on these Teryx's... Once there is an initial adjustment for a belt break-in, will the belt continue to stretch and further adjustments needed? I had only 3 hours on my '08 and it started hitching on takeoff (i now have 13 hours). I've gotta say that it is extremely discouraging to have to make a belt adjustment already. I have owned and operated ATVs and snowmobiles forever and have not had this issue. I have also been reading about modifications... I would like to have this rig respond a little better than it does and from what I can figure... it will cost me about $1000 to get a stock unit to to come to life (clutch kit, CDI, overdrive plate, carb kit, air filter)... and this is on top of the $10k i spent to get it home. I have had my Teryx for about 4 weeks and just got back from riding with some friends... the RZR... OMG! I understand that it is lighter, but it will rip, right out of the box, no mods. none! Will the $1000 in mods to my rig at least let me keep the RZR taillights in sight? I would like to keep my stock tires for now and not got more than 2" bigger in the future. ... and as for the carb boot/air box boot thing... what the heck (I know, another $50 - $75 wil fix the problem). The frame is beefier, that is for sure... beyond that? Give me something to brag about.

"A tow rope on that RZR will give you lots of bragging rights!"
If you keep on riding with him I am sure it will happen, just bring the tow rope and camera on every ride and post it when you get to do it...
Or else get him to try and pull something, I can't believe some of the stuff that I have pulled with the Teryx, feel sorry for the rear suspension.

Rex,

You have the better machine. One thing about the Teryx, you should go on and gas on it not ease on the throttle and when you are maintaining speeds under 25mph stay in low range.

I burnt a belt up first night out in my RZR I had.

300lbs difference is a lot.

Todd
