I change them every 2000 miles even if the belt looks good, there only $80 and take 20 minutes to change.

16000 miles! My next ATV will be a Suzuki for sure now.

Well going with a Dayco belt. To change, does one put bolts into the rear sheaves to open it up and will belt then come off easily? The front unit doesn't have to be removed does it?

I think I squeezed the one side open as much as I could and then slid the belt down inside. Then I turned it while slipping it on the variator side. It's been awhile, so sorry for the weak description. It wasn't difficult, I do remember that. I think I went with a Dayco belt for like $35. Got it at AutoZone of all places. Good luck & congrats on that many miles. That's something else. Out of curiosity, what have you had to change/fix over the years? I'm always fixing something. All the bearings have gone out, brakes all around once. I ride this one kinda hard.

You use no tools to take belt on or off you change it like a snowmobile. Here a Video of one being changed, it a Polaris but there all changed the same way. YouTube - Changeing belt POLARIS ATV
