Tell tale signs you need a new belt?

I just opened up my clutch and everything look clean and the belt to me a novice looks brand new. I purchased the the rzr with 1800 miles, 111 hours. It now has 3000 miles and 177 hours.
How do I tell if I need to replace the belt. I still runs fine, no issues just wanted to stay on top on maintenance. Thanks for your replies
Roy

I noticed mine having a sluggish take off, its like it took more pedal to get going. Other than that I don't know, the sportsmans I had gave no signs they just shredded. I was in the same boat you're in about 2 months ago, just so happened to find a member wanting to get rid of a belt cheap so I threw it on and now use my original for a spare.

Re: Tell tale signs you need a new belt?

I'm sluggish on take off as well. I think it may be a throttle cable adjustment. I completed forgot to pull the gasket when I started it without the cover. shredded the gasket instantly.
Anyone know the best place and price in a replacement?
Also any tricks on getting the bottom two bolts back in?

Yea that should bring her back to life. I know it did mine, I adjusted the throttle cable an put on the new belt at the same time too. The bottom bolts didn't give me much trouble, I guess I got lucky!

I put a magnet in the socket that I use to put the bolts back in the cover.

This link might help.

I keep the kit with the belt in the LnR cargo box.

Look at the sides of the belt. If you see hourglassing, glazing, cracks, seperations, then replace it. Since your in there already, I would install a new belt and use the old belt for a spare. Thx.

Re: Tell tale signs you need a new belt?

Thanks for the great replies. I've been reading BlackBarts treads on clutching. Great stuff. I probable should of started there.
Any way my belt that I may replace is number 3211118 which is for an 2009 700 xp. I may of been running the wrong belt. seems to of worked fine though.
