I am on my 3rd belt in my 2011 xp and havent removed the shock to get the cover off, just did it yesturday!! takes 2 guys or something heavy. put some weights.. 200lbs or more on the back to compress the shocks, take the cover off and turn with the it back up and it will twist out. its tight but comes right out.
"I wanted to inspect my belt on my 2012 900 XP4 with WERS. I could inspect it but couldn't take the cover off. Do I have to take the shock off on my 2012 900 XP4 with WERS? I realized mine may be a different scenario than a regular XP with the smaller Fox shocks"
i have a 2014 xp 1000 with W.E. shocks and same thing i doint think you can remove the belt cover without remove the rear shock how stupid... or am i just too stupid to get the cover off lol!
did you ever get it out>?
