Do you have a worn or broken drive belt? Today I’m going to show you how to change that out. I’m Kristen and this is maintenance matters.
We’re going to start by removing the wheel and tire. This will give us a little bit better access to the clutch. Next, remove the lower shock bolt and slide your shock out of the way. Now remove your vent tube from the clutch cover. Then remove all the screws from your clutch cover. Once all your screws are loose, remove the clutch cover.
Using the clutch tool that was provided in your factory toolkit, push back the secondary clutch so it’s easier to remove the belt. Make sure that the clutch sheath is pushed all the way back and open. Once it is, you can remove the belt. When changing out your belt, check for any abnormal wear or any debris on the clutch or inside of the vent tubes. Clean anything if it’s necessary. When you are replacing your belt, SuperATV has you covered with our Gates Belts which is what we’re installing on this machine today.
When reinstalling your belt, slip it over the primary first to begin installation. When putting the belt over the secondary, you’ll need to reopen the sheaths using your clutch tool. Now that we have the belt over the primary and secondary clutches, spin your secondary until the belt tightens up. Once you’ve got your new belt installed, reinstall all components and you’re good to go.
Thanks for watching and happy riding.
