Re: How can you tell if your belt is slipping?

You will hit the rev limiter and your rzr won't be going as fast as normal. Or if your under a hard load like pulling a hill in low and you hit the rev limiter(belt is probably slipping).

Re: How can you tell if your belt is slipping?

The first thing I usually notice is the smell, if it starts to smoke then you have pushed it to far

Re: How can you tell if your belt is slipping?

1st usually is smell (burnt rubber-very distinct smell)
2nd is smoke usually about the same time as the smell
3rd It depends on how bad you smoked your belt, if it will move at all, it will have a jerking type motion upon take off
4th it wont move at all.

#1 smells like you just did a big smoky burn out in your car.... (not that i ever do things like that)

and you forgot #5 a loud snap/pop sound followed but a massive rpm increase and rapid loss of speed
