Take the little tool out of your kit that is hinged and threaded on one end and turn it into the open hole on the end of your secondary clutch. The more you turn it in, the more it splits the sheaves apart to easily slide the belt off. Make sure when you install the new belt, the arrow faces toward the front of the machine. Reverse the order to install.

You can also spread the secondary by hand. All you have to do is lock your emergency brake, and place your hands on the inside sheave, then press firmly back and rotate to the right. This will allow it to open, then you hold it with your right hand and take the belt off with your left. Doesn't take a whole lot, just need to find out when and how much you need to rotate it. A bolt would work if you could find the same metric fine thread. Hope this helps!

The secondary is the one on the right if you are looking at the sled from the side, or the one in the back if you are sitting on the sled. Sheaves are the two halves of the clutch, the faster you go the more the sheaves open on the secondary. The Primary is just the opposite, the faster you go the more the clutch closes.

put the e-brake on. grab the outer half of the secondary and twist. it is tough but you can doo it by hand. otherwise any friends with a doo will have the same tool. it is the same tool even for newer sleds. even if you had to buy one it can't cost more then $10.0
