I got tinkering again. I don't have any issues with hot cluthes but as an XR owner I hate the idea of not having a place to put my spare belt. Well I solved that issue. I did not order the complete $40 dollar CVT cooling kit only the plastic part itself which is like 20 bucks. So here it is. The only tools used in this sacrifice was tape to make the cut lines, utility knife and a dremel tool with the little sander bite to give it that smooth edge feel... Think of it this way it's half the weight... :D IMG_2058sm.jpg IMG_2060sm.jpg IMG_2061sm.jpg IMG_2062sm.jpg

I like this mod a lot. Think I'll copy your design since I really dislike the factory proposed location and I really don't have the room in my tunnel bag.

Thanks for sharing!!! :happydance

Thanks, I just found the number myself while reading the thread in the XP forum.

Upon further part number look up on this, I've found what might be another XR 1200 Renegade option for me. There is a "Belt Plate" (Part number: 508000702) available for $10.99

I can't tell for sure whether it can be used on the XR Gade as it only shows on the 2012 800etec/800R part look up screens.

Anyone have or seen this and where it might be mounted? I'm thinking the same location, as it is showing up in the "Pulley" section. or perhaps, it goes up in the nose somewhere?

It appears BRP feels the Renegades are not going to develop the high clutch temps like the Summits and Freerides and there for supply this belt holder instead.

Thanks

Removing 3 ounces of plastic is not much on a 500#+ sled. Why not leave it on for the improved cooling?

My clutches run cool to begin with due to my setup and own venting. The CVT is designed to work with the TRA\QRS combo not the PB80\QRS like i'm running and the wieght thing was just a joke..

With a PB 80, why would you even need a spare belt ? thought this "fixed" all the belt blowing problems
