Default new belts

we have become a CV-TECh dealer. they have devolved the own drive belts. called PBX in there testing these are spot on dimension wise and totally smoked all other belts tested against for longevity. 1 year warranty that can be warrantied by us or any CV-TECH dealer. so instant replacement. and the good thing is a $123.95 retail price. we will have these in august. we will have Polaris and ski-doo belts in stock for current models 1078 belt numbers and up. some older belts are around $80

we had been a fan of gates belts. but last season we saw more issue's with them not holding up and being very inconsistent? time for a change. like everything we will torture test these. will be tested on our pro-stock and water-x sled first.
dskofich and rockin like this.

Any idea what the compound is like? The past few seasons Iíve liked the ultimax xs811 as a 1177 replacement, grippier and no issues with durability

it looks a lot like a ultimax belt. but not sure of the compound? yet. the rep says there is only 4 manufactures of belts. gates, dayco, Mitsubisha, and timken. these are made by timken.

Are these CV-Tech belts their own manufactured belts?, or are they just working with a belt manufacture like dayco having belts made dedicated to these performance aftermarket guys like in the past?

At least im not the only one that was having issues with the gates belts lasting last season. Running a cvtech forged motor this year, so it wouldnt hurt to run their belts if i need to haha.

My 850 XC had no adjustment for deflection of stock Poo belt. So changed it at 1,500 miles. 2nd Poo belt same thing. But my RPMs were 8,150 spot on on the 1st and 2nd Poo belts. Then noticed down on power after mid range. ( About 3,000 miles) RPMs were 8,350-8,400. Turns out had broken secondary spring. Power REALLY DOES drop at over rev! So put on Gates Carbon Fiber. Had GREAT luck in the past with these. RPMs 7,900. 7,500. 7,000. Losing MORE power. Gates CF had 500 miles on it. Turns out one half of the whole outside had peeled off. Close to a blow. Put stock, lose Poo belt back on and 8,150 right ON the money once again. Adjusted belt deflection. Must have been something in the secondary stuck from day one. Bottom line, loose Poo belt was better than low mileage Gates CF. Quality shit the bed on these!

I ran gates belts back in the 90's on my 600 xcr and 680 ultra. Belt compound was pretty hard running 300 rpm higher than the poo belts so i had to tweak the clutching...never had any issues once the deflection was set, except some excessive wear to the clutch sheave faces.

My Gates C belt caused a BIG over rev on my sled. It took just about every set screw in my slp magnum force weights to keep it in check. It also shoots past peak, and drops back to the proper rpm, didn;t do that before with the 1115 belt.

Ive got a poo on mine now, ill probably end of doing new springs the summer. I always end up replacing them around 2500 miles. Not worth the headache of having one fail.
