Re: New Gates belts

I had the carbon fiber gates in my 900 and it held up to lots of abuse. I bought 2 because they were so cheap and my stock belt only lasted 100 miles. I still have the spare and looks like it will fit my 1k!

Supposed to fit is the tale.

Re: New Gates belts

I bought a spare Polaris belt for our 1000 and it really hurt my feelings and my wallet. I buy my stuff at 10% over cost +9% sales tax and I think the total on the belt was 192.00. I was guessing somewhere between 125.00-150.00. I figured the belt would be worth 500.00 if I was 20 miles from the truck and the original belt broke, so I bought it.

I'm curious to see what pricing is on the Gates belts.

Re: New Gates belts

I paid $95.00 for 2 at my buddy's cost. According to a add on ebay they are the same as the 900. I'm estimating 1 belt is about 25% cost of a oem. I have no doubt that they are not as good or better than stock.

Re: New Gates belts

Is this a improvement on the carbon fiber belt?

Re: New Gates belts

I put my extra Polaris OEM XP900 belt on my new 1000 this last trip out. Fit like a glove and worked fine. They are about $179.00 here OTD. No sales whacks here.

Re: New Gates belts

I'm excited the Gates belt is a lot cheaper than OEM, but I haven't had a reason to swap belts to try one out. I have 2200 miles and counting with my factory belt! I keep my XP in low from 0-20MPH and switch to high when driving 20+MPH no exceptions.

I didn't think warranty would cover belts

Re: New Gates belts

Gates warranteed it. Evidently a obese xp4 is hard on belts per Hunterworks.

Yes, Gates has a good warranty on their belts, unlike the rest of them!
