Belt Tools

Having priced the tools Ma Kaw recommends for belt adjustment I found them rather spendy. Are they really needed, some needed, or just another promotion by the beloved makers of the Teryx?

Some people just do it by feel, while others use the actual tool...I am sure others will chime in, I have yet to adjust it myself yet.

After pricing the recommeded tools, from the service manual, a person can dump 400 or 500 into just the tools alone. I find it hard to believe there wouldn't be another option

I am sure there are tools of the trade that people use versus actual Kawasaki branded tools. Like I said, with the belt deflection, so know just by feel, others use a ruler. I know some people have made their own clutch pullers, etc.

You will probably need the the drive clutch puller, but the driven clutch spring compressor you can make with a 1/2 piece of all thread, some large washers and a pipe fitting bell. I made mine at work, so I don't have anything invested in it. My friend has it right now, I'll see if I can get it back and post a picture of it. Super easy to make and works great.

You only need the clutch puller and the spring compressor. I think like 30 bucks and 90 bucks if you have air tools. You can hold both the driven and drive (clutch) pulley with your hand and get them off.

If you don't have air tools, you will probably need or need to make hte tools that hold the drive and driven pulleys.

Same thing RAM04 said.

Thanks guys. I would like to see some pictures of that spring compressor.

I have air, and lots of it, so that should help with the service of that belt.

I believe I have the EPI Brand, but not 100% sure. The angle is so you can put it in a vice which is handy.





Also you will need the following clutch puller. Remember that the bolt in the drive pulley is reverse threads.

My home made one looks alot like that, I'm going by on the way home from work and pick it up and hope to have pictures this evening. Like Magellan said, you will need the clutch puller for sure.

Okay, I've got pictures, but the idiot on the computer can't down load them, so he will wait till his daughter gets home and try again. I will try back later.
