Best Price on Extra Drive Belt
« on: November 22, 2016, 01:05:21 AM »
Where is the best place (price) to buy an extra drive belt?

It was told that you should always carry an extra belt in your rig when you are using it in case of failure.
How easy is it to change?

Thanks - lvflyer

Well, this has proven to be a good replacement belt:

https://www.amazon.com/Gates-Drive-ZForce-CForce-40C3691/dp/B01COA7YGQ/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1468528239&sr=8-1&keywords=40c3691

However you won't be installing it on the trail...at least I won't be. Not only is it a PITA to get the cover off as it requires removing the interior plastics, but the secondary has to come off to first drop the belt inside the clutch as it won't pass between the clutch and housing. You would need to carry your torque wrench and two spanner wrenches to remove and install the clutches along with all the stuff to get the plastics and cover off. Fortunately with the wet clutch this system is like the Yamaha Dura-belt system that if operated with common sense will last a very long time. Mostly, get it in low when in slow or steep situations. Also keep the air intake filter clear..something to check on yours. Its behind the drivers seat. Open the grill and there is a small sponge-type filter pushed way back in there. Pull it and clean it. If you are going to be in dusty conditions a lot, might consider a better filter system. It will make your clutches and belts last longer. But for now don't worry about it. Plenty of time to tinker later...lol

It looks like the Gates P/N is 40G3569 (800cc) not the 40G3691 (600cc) - is that correct?

Also, is the CARBON CORD 40C3569 better and last much longer than the standard 40G2569 because it is about TWICE the cost?

Which ever is the one for the 800s. I thought the one I showed lists it for the 800 CFM. Can double-check on the Gates site. The Carbon cord is the better one for the weight of the SxS and the other OK for the ATV. The OEM CFM is over 300 bucks...and that's borderline insane....IMO :) On my other machines I'm used to paying between 80-130 for quality belts so 90 is acceptable for me.

I can turn a wrench with the best of them, but there is no way I would do a belt change trailside. As NMK said the belt should last a very long time.

Changed the weights and sliders in mine the other day, no obvious signs of belt wear at 4000 miles, I have a gates belt in the garage just in case.

That's encouraging...with proper clocking, cooling and a splash of common sense, these belts should last a very long time. My brother still has his factory belt in his 2003 Grizz with over 6000 miles. Basically the same wet clutch-style system.
