My 2014 freeride 137 has blew 2 belts in 500 mi. Both belts were #391. I cleaned both clutch faces from brand new, washed both belts in hot soapy water and did the belt break in. Both belts had the green color, not black. Set the deflection by the book. And I installed the side pannel vent kit after the first blown belt. Anyone with the same problem?

Maybe a tower brace would help and also check your alignment? Sent from my DROID RAZR using Tapatalk

Same sled, blew my first belt at 600 miles, got a buddy with same sled, blew his second belt now in about 800-900 miles. We've ridden together the entire season so far. Another buddy with a '14 Renegade X, 900 miles, on the original belt. He's ridden with us all year also. We are a little harder with our off trail riding and throttle control than my buddy with the Renegade though. Even he admits that and sees that with our riding. So, for whatever that's worth. (our mileage difference between us is because we also have 120" sleds we've had along this season). My buddy with the FreeRide was thinking of getting the brace from BRP also. I haven't decided yet. His first belt blew in about 300 miles. He admits he never really broke it in properly, if in fact that even helps. I have put on the Gates belt everyone raves about now at 600 miles, so we'll see how that one lasts and performs.

I have never broken in a belt and have had no problems. Be careful with the brace as it can throw your clutches out of alignment. Are you guys clutched ad geared properly for the type of riding you do? Example. Are you geared for top speed but spend a lot of time in deep snow and trees?

it's not the belts ,it's the clutching causing too much heat ,fix the clutching & gearing .you should be able to fix it with a different drive spring . :wink_old:

What does the green on the belt mean?

Dealer will not replace belts, but will look at your clutch alignment. Green on the belt is normal. If it turns dull black its been overheated

Take apart the primary and make sure your arms and rollers are moving freely. Its really caommon that the arms get a little sticky from new and need to be cleaned a couple times in the first 500 miles. Before you go crazy with alignment stuff I would look there.

Tried floating secondary on a Freeride 137" last winter, a little better but nowhere near enough.

Adjust the tourque stop, should be no gap at all.

Stock clutch calibration produces to much heat.

Belts that pop cords are smoking hot, way over 230F but they are still green.

CT clutch tools are here. My Y - X is 3mm and my Z is 18mm. The Z measurement seems low according to the 2012 specs I found. Anyone know the 2014 X Y Z specs? 2 of my arms have slight resistance when I flop them back and forth and rollers spin free. So I dont see anything obvious. I going to call DJ tomorrow, I was planning on getting his kit anyway.

I'll be watching my belt. I've got the floater and clutch tower brace from day one. I also have my panels vented. I never broke my belt in. The first 10 km I took easy then rode it like I stole it. Only got 350km so far and the belt looks new I've done a lot of standing wheels and wot carves Posted by my Galaxy Note 2
