Default Gates belt vs polaris

Anyone running a gates kevlar or carbon fiber belt as a spare? Iím tempted to order one versus another polaris #3211183.

I would use Gates as primary. Polaris as back up. Donít fold the Gates. Itís a couple hundred rpm pick up when you put it on.

Gates carbon = Primary
Polaris = Spare

As mentioned, dont fold the gates belt in half, and try real hard to break it in correctly. I like to get 3 heat cycles in a new belt before putting full load on it.

Buy 2 new belts, go for an easy ride and swap them out every 10 minutes. Basically all you need to do is get the belt fully up to operating temp, and allow it to cool down, then repeat.

The gates is about 0.030Ē thicker then the Polaris belt too.

I think they are talking about how you carry your spare on the machine!! On my modded PRO they are basically folded in half in the spare belt carrier and this can cause some problem if you carry a new Gates carbon in there, so I have a different method for that and I also only carry a POO belt for a spare if I have one, so that is not a problem in my case. I had two and one half years and about 2200 miles on my last Gates carbon when it blew some of the inside edge parts out of it and put the poo spare on for about 200 miles until my order of 3 new Gates came in (from Dobeck) and then finished last season on the new Gates. As was said above, break in is paramount. I have run the Gates belts for last 7 years with no problems or complaints at all and we have 5 Polaris from 07-700 Dragon 155 up to new 18 axys and all of the 4- 163's are 800's. suggestion here-- Start the machine and bring the sled up to temp and with sled raised --cycle the clutches, belt and track up in speed over the off season! I do this at least twice during the summer months.

Normally I would just vary throttle 3/4 and under for 10-15 then let it cool a few times. First 3 hours pretty relaxed and variable in throttle and after that its go time.

I run mine for a min or 2 every week or so right now. Is there any other method with the gates belt I should do?

Off brand but I have 1600mi on my gates installed on my XM, and OEM as spare. When I get my new snowcheck SKS 850 I will be doing the same thing if a belt available.
