Belt by Gates?

Has anyone tried a drive belt made by Gates, called the G force? Wondering if it is worth getting. Or a belt by Dayco? Planning a trip to Turkey Bay in Kentucky and don't want one breaking.

Re: Belt by Gates?

I just looked up gates drive belts and there was a post on there that brought me back to this forum. Everyone had good things to say and it was on the flat belt. The G force belt is ribbed on the outside to help cooling. At half the price (on ebay) it is worth trying

I tried the EPI severe duty and hit the rev limiter at 59. Went back to my stock Polaris S belt and went back to 62/63 before hitting the rev limiter. Only keep the EPI as a spare and will only buy the polaris S belt.

Re: Belt by Gates?

I smoked the factory belt on my '11 which caused some flat spots on the belt and jerky engagement. I bought a replacement belt from Highlifter at Mud Nats that is made by Dayco. So far, I'm very impressed with it. It has a much smoother engagement than the factory belt ever had. Also comes with a 1-year no questions asked warranty.

Re: Belt by Gates?

The gates belt most people have probably tried is #pL30071 same as napas, its made more for go carts...use gate gforce severe cvt belt #19g3982 for standard rzr, looks just like the Polaris belt.heres a pic of each belt..

Re: Belt by Gates?

The one I got looked just like the top one, with the ribs on both sides, but the part number was 24G40022. Have you had good luck with it?

Re: Belt by Gates?

165$ up here for a factory s heavy duty belt. Got 3400km on my originally one, all hard miles, and I'm sure it would have lasted longer if I wasn't going down the highway on the rev limiter for around 10miles. Girl I was with almost cried when it blew, she made quite a bang. Got another Polaris one and it's been great so far as well. Might order up one of these for a spare

14 scrambler 1000, 28 mega mayhems on 14" sixr wheels, qsc clutched on hardest setting
14 Ace, 26" pro comp extremes on 14" msa m17 elixer wheels, total blast!
And a 600rwhp 03 powerstroke on 37" mud grapplers to haul it all
13 fx4 a/p on 35"grapplers, 6.2l
