When to replace the belt??

I have had 2 rhinos in my time and have never replaced the belt on either of them. As of now I have 1500 plus miles on my 08 700 belt with about 1350 of them with my 28 zillas on the rhino. It does chirp every once and a while either when I go down a hill in low and the rear tires drag because of the engine braking and if im going up a hill and done make it, sugar sand hills, and drop the throttle it chirps. Im guessing its time for a new belt. Have the cvt apart now and the belt is not glazed over and doesnt look wore. What u guys think, time for a new belt?
Where the best/cheapest place to get stock oem belts then, if you think its time?
Thanks for your replies!!

If your belt is still within specs (between 30 and 33 mm) and its not glazed, prolly don't need changing. But there only $75, you can change it (since you have it apart)and keep that one as a spare in case you do smoke one. Belt wear depends on the driver and terrain not miles. I bought mine from powerpartsplus.com.
Hope this helps!

u can go 2k easy on a stock belt, 3k easy on a 700 belt,

when u buy new for sure allways stick with a OEM 700 belt the strongest longest lasting belt out there hands down

yes sorry 700 belt fits the 660 .

Will the 700 belts fit a 660? And we are talking 700 rhino and not some fancy belt, right?
Thanks

If it's never been replaced, I say replace it now and use the one you have now as a spare. Nothing worse then being stranded in the middle of no where at 3am in the morning like I was. And yes, replace it with the stock OEM Yamaha 700 belt. They have Kevlar in them and last alot longer andwork on the 660 no problem.

Does the oem belt works with the bronco clutch or do I need one of those severe duty belts?

The OEM 700 belt is the only belt to use especially on a Bronco.

I've got 1800 miles on my belt. checked it a couple of weeks ago and was going to replace it but it's still in spec and no cracking or chips. Mine chirps occasionally to when I'm in a tight spot. nothing to worry about.
