Default 2019 clutching

So for 2019 ski-doo added the fins to the secondary and put the blowhole to the vent outside of the hood and made stiffer motor mounts.

Did this fix the clutching issues of the G4? Is everybody getting great belt life now and no more issues?

Thanks

1100 miles on the original belt, looks like it'll wear out of spec before she blows..

The 571 seems to fairly available now. I was at my dealer last Friday asking if they had more, they said yes.

I picked up 5 this fall as soon as I heard about them. Based on the past 2 seasons of less than stellar belt life on a 2017 as well as a 2018 to put it mildly. I was planning for more of the same with the 19. Time will tell.

600 miles on a 531 belt and it exploded with no warning. 2019 165 3" track with 820 miles. Very disappointing. Got a 571 and not quite broke in yet. Ski Doo and my dealer won't like me if this keeps up. 15 800 154 I would get 3600 miles before swapping out and I'm not riding any different. 9,000 to 11,400 feet in elevation.

So there's still no confirmed fix for the G4 belt problems? I read that the A2D clutch kit fixes it with different calibration, but haven't found many testimonials

Chad's Kit from A2D works, got 800 miles on my belt and no worries. Holds 8000 allay and back shift is great too!
