That is a sweet setup . This secondary mod might turn out to be the bang for the buck this year . :banana: The performance gain from being able to run a softer belt is worth it's weight in gold all by itself .
Ok here is the deal. They are not in stock yet. The belt was to be shipped Sept.16th and have not been shipped. The belt must have a appz. for a different sled because the belt is coming from Former Dayco and has the same compound as the Ultamax 3 belt. Not sure if we can pull this belt deep in to the secondary with out slip?
How ever the M and crossfire will have the 10.4" secondary and this belt for 2007....Don't ask me how I know.

Close but there is room for the .25"s that it is getting bigger. I did find a belt that will make this work on the M and crossfire. It is a shelf belt from ultrimax-3 138-4548U3 It is 45.75"s long and 1.375"s wide. :div20:
My M6 has a full inch of clearance from the belt to the belly pan.
...Don i already posted this....this is old news---
(Hey guys just got my 06 High Performance Engineering mag today heres what it says about the Diamond Drive 10.4" Conversion Kit.
"Black Diamond's 10.4" Conversion Kit produces improved shifting characteristics and reduced belt slippage. The larger diameter produces a lower gear ratio at engagement giving the snowmobile a smoother take off. While at top end the larger diameter allows more contact surface with the belt. The increased contact area minimizes belt slippage allowing the clutch to run cooler. The 10.4" Conversion Kit consists of factory balanced 10.4" sheaves. You utilize your existing cam, spring and rollers. A different drive belt will be necessary due to the larger diameter. NOTE: 2006 Firecats and the ZR 900 have a 10.4" driven clutch."
10.4" conversion kit 169.99
belts for firecat, M-series, Crossfire, and ZR 900 are all 79.99
Doesnt that mean that all 06's are alright with this issue?

Did you run the sled after installing? Did it ingage smoothly or does it still slip? I want to know if this is really worth the money. I was going to buy a can, but it looks like if this helps that much i should get this instead.
