Question 98 Grizz 600 Belt

Got a 98 Grizzly 600. Is there any particular brand of belt that seems to hold up better for when you get bogged down. I know that no belt can last forever, and im lookin a tough one to replace the stock one seeing it wants to slip sometimes. Any tips on a fast, easy change too? Thanks in advance.

Preciate it. Is it hard to change? Im used to just replacing chains. Ive moved from the sport atv scene. Too much money for not enough fun.

I tried a Dayco XTX. It was wider than the OEM belt by over 1 mm resulting in a final drive ratio change. I put the OEM belt back in with the stronger spring and the ration was restore.

If you replace your belt there are some things you should consider.
If your new belt is wider, shims can be used to compensate for this difference. That's why I disclose 2.5mm of shim with the Dayco XTX, some to off-set the belt thickness and some to change the final drive ratio. As the belt wears thinner I remove shim thickness, less belt = less shim.
My new belt was longer, I am experimenting with OD weighting for additional drive to full speed.

I'm just playing with the set-up. I can always use the OEM belt. BTW, race teams run each new belt to determine optimum performance for each during a race. I will end up with two set-ups using diff. part combos.

Good Luck

I appreciate all this guys. Maybe I can get to it in the next few days. Also, the bulbs for the 4wd and Oil temp are blowed i think because the 4wheeler will go into 4wd and locks in , but the light will not come on. And id rather be safe than sorry with the oil temp one. Any ideas?
