10 minutes? 20 minutes? The only thing that’s complained about more than actually HAVING to change a belt on the trail is HOW LONG it took you to change that belt.
When a belt disintegrates on the trail, there will always be a joke made about the amount of time you spent “fixing your belt” or “shaving your knuckles” or “learning what a clutch is.” But on any sled, there are always tricks and tips for changing a belt quickly, efficiently and without ruining your day of incredible riding.

Here’s a quick guide for changing a belt from each snowmobile manufacturer with their current stock clutching on current engines and in current chassis. The process is basically the same for each manufacturer (Arctic Cat, Polaris, Ski-Doo, Yamaha), so see the numbering process below, but pay close attention to the tips in this story if you want to save time!
