    We have not expierenced it yet, but from seeing some of the posts, it could be user error.. we have a few new owners that have not had a SxS before and maybe using high when stopping at the bottom of a hill and slipping the belt instead of pulling it down into low, another instance in slipping the tires grinding it out in high instead of putting it into low....when in mud....
    The only belt we have had to replace on the Rhintax was driver error...cutting back and forth accross the face of a dune....boy do they stink
    and that is how a friend on his RZR burnt up a belt also...

    I made a belt post here about this very same subject. I am very certain I have toasted my belt, but waiting until I get the "Ordrered" belt to verify.
    Im happy to know that im not alone now in this regard.
    Thank You Michael.

    It is easy to burn a belt, I did it the first time I took my Teryx to the dunes. With that said, I suppose the other thing I am getting at is if these machines that have burned a belt came from the dealer with an incorrectly tensioned belt.

    First mistake is not using Low near as much as one should...we almost made 40 MPH @ WOT last weekend in low range.....don't be intimidated by the RPM when you first take off,,,that CVT will catch up, hook up and Low will save you belts....this includes low speed 180* turns, starts on hills and quite a gamat of times you'll find Low can be used instead of High....

    Second mistake (dunes) is serpentining on a wide, tall dune face...zig-zagging back and forth and carving ruts in 2 wheel drive....while the actual act of side to side is fine while on the throttle, the problem arises when you back off the throttle, cut the wheel back the other way, then nail the throttle again....you've disengaged the secondary clutch, then told it to hook back up instantly with a 1200# machine on a hell of an incline in super-soft sand......your smoking and over-heating that belt BAD....do that abusiveness 6-8 times back and forth and you'll be due for another belt......Lance

    @Lance,
    I have to laugh. I was probably doing what you described for three days worth of riding. Its so easy to want to drive these things like a Quad.
    Now that I have "hopefully" mastered throttle input while duning there wont be so many abrupt throttle settings.

    We have burned several. We are now running ///Airdam primary clutches and have had ZERO issues. We can also run 58MPH in low range.

    remember when your going slow stay in low (25mph or slower) going faster stay in high, other wise you will have belt issues, premature wearing, the belt jumps up and down on the sheves.

    Jimi.....IMO, if your belt is jumping up and down, best get the problem fixed before riding again....somethings definately wrong with it or broken ....these belts are designed to and do run tight and true all the time......these CVTs are not like the centrifical clutch on our go-carts from yesteryear.....Lance
