For me, saw best life out of AC belts however cost is not for the faint of heart.

060, accept no substitutes, 046 in a pinch but you'll add a couple hundred rpm, harder belt.

I haven't put a belt on my sled since I bought it ~7 years + ~5k ago!! Looking forward to the new belt going on it this season .

Amortized over 7 years, I've gotten my money's worth out of the Cat 060 belt .

That 060 belt seems pretty reasonable at about $80 online compared to my Axys 850 belt which is about $190.

Pete, I would break in your new belt slowly. Wash it first. Then inspect your old belt, then go out and do some moderate acceleration through to peak rpm/mph runs with each belt and note the differences.
