[0:00] Do you have a worn or broken drive belt on your Can-Am Commander? Today I’m going to show you how to fix that. My name is Kristen and this is Maintenance Matters.
You’re going to start by removing your seat. We’ve already done that.
The next step is to remove all the rivets for this plastic panel and under your seat, and set these aside. You’re going to remove all thirteen clutch cover bolts. There are five on the bottom that you’ll need to access through the skid plate.
[1:03] Now you’re gonna take the clutch remover tool and thread into your secondary. This is gonna cause it to open up and make your belt looser.
Now you’ll just slip the belt over the secondary and back over the primary. As you pull the belt off, you’ll want to pay attention to how the letters are facing. If you’re reusing the same belt, you’ll put it back on the exact same way it came out of your clutch.
[1:39] You’ll want to run your rag over top of each and make sure there are no gouges or cuts in it. If so, you’ll need to replace your clutch.
If there’s any belt dust, you can use brake cleaner to get that off. Just be sure all components are dry before reinstalling your belt.
[1:55] When inspecting your belt, you’ll want to check for any dry rot or cracks in it. This one looks like it’s in pretty good shape, so we’re gonna reuse that.
Flip it over the primary first, then back on to the secondary. Remove your clutch tool and spin the secondary to get the sheets to close. Make sure your ribs are in line with the top of your secondary. You’ll know it’s back in line and tightened properly.
[2:30] Now you’re ready to reinstall all components that we removed.
That’s how easy it is to change your belt. Happy riding!
