I have a 03 gade 800 (ZX chassis). Dealer gave me 03 Rev belt by mistake. The rev belt is wider. Before I noticed the mistake, I did notice my sled was faster than ever. Does anyone know why this would happen? I am thinking less belt slip, perhaps. What would be the downside? I did notice some wear on my clutch springs when I changed them at 10,000 miles. They stood shorter on the bench than the new ones and there was wear on the 2nd and third coils. I am uncertain if this was caused by the wider belt or is just normal after 10k miles. I ran the Rev belt 2k miles from 8k to 10k miles on the odo. Once I put the proper belt back, the sled was slower again. Any thoughts?...I am thinking of staying with the rev belt but I am nervous of causing future problems.

whoa dude, 10 000 is way long over due for clutch spring change's! Yes the new ones should be shorter after that kind of mileage by about 1/4" free standing length.
Give Joe time to respond to you, he's probably at work.
