EVO bad ass belt

Anyone running the evolution power sports "bad ass" belt? I need to replace the belt on my 900S, running a spare right now. I've run OEM, gates and hunterworks. I just recently exploded the hunterworks belt (my fault, not the belts) and looking for a new belt to try.

Re: EVO bad ass belt

There really is no better belt than the factory. I get 3000 miles out of my belts on a 190hp turbo.

I still have my OEM belt, in fact that might be the spare I have on there right now. From day one the OEM felt real jerky at low speeds so I switched to a gates belt and that problem was solved. Just looking at different options

If it was your fault on our belt just get another and that belt has changed since you bought it too unless you bought it in the last two weeks, our newest belt dimensions were changed to help with the noisy secondary clutches when using thicker belt.

Besides I would give you a deal on the second one

He has a 900 and the oem on a 900 is not good, they are really jerky and thin

OEM turbo belts are good ones and so are ours, our turbo belt is the most reliable one we have.

That's awful generous of you Todd, much appreciated. In fact I was just on your website this morning doing a little reading on the new belts. It sounds like there is an included washer required with this belt? Does it go behind the secondary? I'd be willing to give it a try and you've always been great to deal with

Re: EVO bad ass belt

No sir it goes in the primary, click on the video link on the belt page you are looking at, it explains it and shows you where to put it. Only takes me about one min to install.

check this video out. im due for a new belt for my 17 turbo and planning on trying this evo belt out.

I just saw that video over the weekend. I was very impressed how that belt held up. My eyes where on that Razorback gauge and I was floored to see it was about 180 degrees after what seemed like a mile maybe two at 80 plus mph. To be fair, I don't know what the ambient temps where or what the belt temps were like with the other belts they tried.

Even with my Airdam set up , on a 80 plus degree day I can hit 200 if I'm running 60 plus for an extended period of time. (OEM belt)

Also, they kept talking about EVO/ G Boost. A couple of years ago when I tried a G Boost belt , Glen Erlandson was the one that started the company and was doing the development. I talked and emailed with him quite a bit. I wonder if he sold the company ?

I test his (E compound) belt after getting my Airdam set up and it seemed to run warmer than the OEM. Granted, I only gave it 10-15 miles then went back to the OEM. Maybe it's possible it takes a little longer to break in , being a harder compound. Maybe I'll revisit it...I've got a stack of new and almost new belts lying around, might as well.

Re: EVO bad ass belt

Glen still owns Gboost and the bad ass belts are made by two different companies, I can't say which of theirs is made by who just know two different.

And the belt itself on a RZR will be about the same at high speeds for extended periods of time if you fixed overtravel

our belt never gets over 201 degrees even at 85 mph. I have the std washer in it though.

Only way to make a belt not hit the center of the secondary and make temps go up is to make it too long and that has other affects

Todd,
Thanks for clarifying that. From that video I thought the belt was from G Boost.

Re: EVO bad ass belt

Sorry I should be more clear, EVO bad ass is Gboost and Gboost has two companies making their belts

Re: EVO bad ass belt

That video is impressive.

I followed along when they showed an OEM belt wouldn't last 1/2 a lap and then the Bad Ass Belt made it 2.5 laps and now Aaron couldn't break the WBB, World's Best Belt. Not only could he not break it but he could barely get it to 190 degrees.

I really like the Ultimax Belt in my XPT FWIW
