When should I change my snowmobile drive belt?
For most riders, starting each season with a fresh drive belt will lead to a full season of winter adventure. Over time, your drive belt will wear and need to be replaced. For starters, you should perform a quick visual inspection before every ride. Look for signs of wear like cracking, uneven wear, flat spots or fraying. If you see any of these, a belt change is in order.
If you notice uneven performance from your sled while you ride, it could indicate you’re in need of a new belt. Look for signs like inconsistent acceleration or lower top-end speeds.
