How can I get this gear oil off my belt???

Hey guys,

My secondary seal went on me last weekend when I was out riding. Covered the entire inside of the clutch cover, belt, etc in gear oil. I changed out the seal already, cleaned the clutches and cover. I'm currently soaking my belt in a tub of water and Dawn dish soap. I scrubbed belt in water/soap with a stiffer bristle brush and the gear oil is still not really coming off. It's caked in it. What can I do/use on it to clean it other than dish soap and water, if anything? Or should I let it sit overnight in the soapy water and hope most of it breaks down and comes off itself? Any/all recommendations and advice appreciated! Need to get back out riding ASAP!

Throw it away and get a new one from Hunterworks. You will never get all the oil out. As the belt heats the oil will keep coming out tearing up the clutches. Cost will be much higher than a new belt. That is kind of like trying to clean brake shoes oil soaked. Cannot be done. Replace is the only option. Use brake clean on the clutch surfaces then rub down with scotch bright pads.

Thanks for the reply. That's pretty much what I was thinking/dreading. Guess I'll be ordering a new belt tonight.

About 2 years ago I lost the same seal, oil was every where, my belt was pretty new and I didn’t want it loose it so I decided to try boiling it in a big pan of water , I changed the water 3 times until I could no longer see any signs of oily contamination. I retired that belt with 2500 miles on about 3 months ago. It was an OEM belt. Clean the clutch’s as prescribed by the other members.
