I would expect and hope to receive an actual OEM Kawasaki replacement belt...however, why do I have the feeling it is an aftermarket replacement belt?

With "Kawasaki Teryx 750" mentioned twice & Factory replacement belt specified you'd probably expect it to be a Kawi belt. But, I'm thinking they meant it was a replacement for the factory belt (replacement meaning substitute for in this case) I'm thinking the advertiser could say OEM is not mentioned, therefore should not be assumed. If it were my ad, I would reword it so as not to mislead anyone. I'm maybe a little more particular about things like that than most people, but 26 years in my own business made me very conscious of business ethics.

The picture is a EPI belt and the price is about right too plus they have a EPI clutch kit very near it so I would say it was a EPI belt.

Click the link below and see if it looks like it and it is a EPI belt.

It is indeed an EPI Belt, I would not have paid 125 for another EPI belt when I could get one at your pricing Todd. In fact I am running an EPI I got from Hunterworks a month or so ago now with about 150 miles on it. I wanted to compare the EPI I got from you to a "Factory Kawasaki Belt" which is what I thought I was buying....

At least on the Hunterworks store, you can tell it is NOT the Kawasake Factory belt but an EPI, which I was happy to get knowing what I was going to get.

Guess OC Performance is definitely a place that you cannot trust to be honest in their descriptions it seems... Glad I paid by PayPal.

Is this place great, or what? Let everybody know how that belt does. I've tried several different belts on my Prairie and the last one was a High-lifter, but to be fair, I've slowed down the last year or so, and I have'nt gave the High-lifter a real workout. I think that someone surely has a better belt than stock, and I will wait to see what works best.

Not for sure but I think they are either a EPI belt or a Carlisle. High Lifter does not make them.

So far the EPI has held up good. Pulled some 1200 pound logs up from my lower property and ran WOT for about 2/3 of the 150 miles. Holding up well so far. I read all the time how the Kawa belt is the best, so I figured if the EPI is this good, why not try the "best" as well. WTH right?
