whats the difference between these two belts according to the polaris fiches these are for the 05-06 IQr P/N 3211104 and P/N3211114 are for the 07IQr440 and 08IQr600 also the 600RR. would a 3211104 fit on a 07IQr? did the CC iving change between the years?
i just sent a email off to the boys at carlisle, ill post there response on what part numbers are applicable belts that work. 85 bucks for a xs belts sounds way better to me if they hold up as good or better. i think poo is doing the name brand price gouging thing to us all. my dealer friend said lots of people that come in there will not put anything in there sled unless it says poo on it, IE oil, belts, skis, track, anything. so i thinks thats whats driving poo's price gouging. was told by him dealer price on the 114 just went up to almost what retail used to be.
he said the norm from poo is to jack prices up at or around the first of every year. so stock up in december on everything wear out to save a buck. i should have bought 2 a month ago and resold them for the price of 3 now. what a joke... ok anough ranting on poos prices im done.
Aftermarket belts often don't have the exact taper that the OEM belt has. You can use them, but will need to have your clutch faces machined in order to obtain maximum performance and belt life. That's a reason why us racers use the OEM belt. Not permitted to machine clutch surfaces in the stock class.
this is the reply i got from carlisle
I'm afraid we don't have a belt for those applications. Our bosses looked at how many of those sleds were made and decided not to produce any belts for those. Our old catalog shows the 147-4524U3 for the 2006 model, but that belt should be too wide and too long for that application.
Has anybody tried those Ultimax belts?
The poo 3211104 belts have not impressed me yet.
Anybody try the 3211114 belt?
I am in BC and only do powder riding. Would like to find a good belt that works well.
