Default Belt Drive Debate, what brand

I am a Dealer and have some customers that want belt drives on there Alphas, Real life experience please on witch brand is more trouble free, Best bang for buck. We are in Canada so C3 is probable priced better.

the c3s that have ridden in our group got taken off and sent back but they werent on cats one was a polaris pro and the other was a skidoo xp.

from what i read TKI is one of the best across the border.
the c3s were blowing belts.
that was a couple years ago now though

Iíve used all three brands, TKI, MVM and C3. They have all worked very well. IMO itís kinda like whatís better Ford vs Chevy vs dodge. Iíve owned a shop before and margin is everything. Find out what that is on each and who you think your best service will be through. If I was you, Iíd have a hard time not supporting my more local C3 guy. Iíve seen belts blow on all 3 when not adjusted and maintained properly.

Couldn't be happier with my TKI. Customer service is second to none.

i had a c-3 on a 14 cat bb for 2 years, one belt, no problems...had a tki on 16 cat stock for 3 years, no problems...slight preference to the tki for ease of install and just feel it seems to run smoother, but no complaints against either...

Default Belt drive

I have TKI and C3 belt drives.
TKI on my turbo charged M800 with a 174"X3" track. No problems.
C3 on my 310hp EVO super chute M1100T with a 174"X3" track. It's broke 2 belts in 6 years. Both times the track was a little to lose and when the track skipped the belts snapped. That's my fault not the belt drives fault.

I'm planning on putting a C3 belt drive on my Apha One next fall.

I see C3 is sending out all of its drives through a different vendor now according to their website. Anyone notice any effect on customer service or getting parts?

My dad and I have been running TKI drives on our cats. They're local for me and CS is great. Haven't put his Ctec kits on yet but I like that the oil pump is in an aluminum housing that can't ever deform and leak.
