since we're on the discussion of when to replace a belt.... I've got a RZR 800 belt on my trailblazer 400 and I smoked it for just a second on saturday. After I got pulled out i noticed that it had a jumpy spot until it got rolling over about 5mph. I took it off today and it's got a short (about 2") spot in it that looks like it burnt out about 3/32" in the center of the area. It also took the little kevlar string away in that section. Should I just run it and carry a spare and tools or should I not trust it and just buy another belt? What do you guys think?

I think it's time to start carrying a spare.

Polaris must have a wear tolerance they recomend on their belts. Anyone know these tolerances or where to find them?

I've owned atv's that had well over 3000 miles on the cvt belt.

unless you own a can-am... in which case, if it's slipping and it smells then change it. Can-Am cvt's are noisey by nature and always whine.

btw- I've never ever had to replace a worn or broken cvt belt. fwiw.
When I sold my polaris sp800 a while back- it had over 3k on the belt. I plowed with it, ran it in mud, water & rough trails- not a single slip or squeal.
You don't keep anything long enough to to were anything out..........

I would replace it and use the old one for a spare.
