[0:00] Is it time for a belt change on your Polaris RZR PRO XP? Today I’m going to show you how to do that. My name is Kristen and this is Maintenance Matters.
We’re gonna start by removing this air vent here. Loosen that clamp up.
Next, we’re going to remove our screws that are holding on our clutch cover.
[0:37] Now that you have all those loosened, pull that out. Slide your cover out of the way. With your clutch cover out of the way, we’re going to go ahead and remove the belt.
[1:00] Your Polaris factory tool kit will have your clutch tool in it. It’ll just thread in right here. As you thread this in, it’ll open up your secondary clutch.
With those spread open, you’ll be able to pull your belt over the secondary. Slide it over the primary with your belt. Also, you’ll want to check for any kind of grooving from tears or missing teeth.
[1:41] This is a fairly new machine with a fairly new belt, so we’ll be able to reuse it. If you are reusing it, pay attention to how the wording is when you pull the belt off so you can put it back in the same way it came out.
One of the most important parts about maintenance on the clutch system is making sure it stays clean. So take a nice clean rag and wipe any dirt or dust out. If there’s any belt dust that’s stuck on the clutch, you can use some brake cleaner to get that off.
Just make sure everything’s dry before reassembling.
As you’re wiping everything down, you’ll want to check your clutch to be sure that there is no grooving or wear on those. If there is, you’ll need to contact your dealership for a new clutch.
[2:22] You’ll want to do the same thing with your lid. Make sure it’s clean, with no extra dirt or dust in there.
On this machine, the clutch seal is located on the clutch itself. When you’re inspecting everything, double check and make sure that it’s in a good state.
[2:49] Now that we’ve double checked everything and got it all cleaned up, we can reinstall our build.
Now you can spin your secondary. That’ll tighten the belt back up. You’ll know it’s tightened back up correctly when the ribs are in line with the top of the secondary.
Put that back in place. Now we can reinstall our cover. Join your clutch cover back up with the housing, and now you can go ahead and re-tighten all the bolts.
And that’s how easy it is to change your belt on the new PRO XP. Thanks for watching. Happy riding!
