Default Belt squeal

My friend has an m8, put the carlisle xs belt on, it squeals on idle. I blew a belt on my M7, and put an xs on it, and it squeals on idle. Is this a trait of this belt? It is rather embaressing.

Just take a shim out of the secondary.

Belt deflection is not covered in the owner's manual (which has more maint info than any I've seen.) I have changed a few belts on past sleds (this is my first Arctic Cat) and have never had to adjust anything.

I have to adjust mine every 3-4 rides, or as the belt wears.

So, wire4 money we need to know what sled and clutch system to have to help you. Squealing belts at ide means the inside of the belt is rubbing on the center of your drive clutch so hard its starting getting sticky and starts squaling sound.

So you need to loosen your belt, done by making the distance bewteen your secondary sheaves wider apart. So add a shim on the old cats, adjust on the DD, and on real old cats buy a longer belt.

I've found the carlisle xs belt sits higher on the secondary making it sit in the primary deeper and creating the squeal. Just like the others said add a shim to the secondary, get an arctic cat belt or get used to the squeal.

Default hey

I adjust my deflection so that the track slightly turns on a track stand, have run like that for 1500 miles. 1200 miles on first belt and decided to change it out. It sqeals at idle sometimes after a couple wide open pulls, but I'v always ignored it.
