advice on changing drive belt

I broke another belt this weekend. I know how to change but I have lost the bolt that opens the clutch. does anyone know how long the bolt has to be? Im pretty sure it is a m8. And i would like some input on what belt to run. Im running 28 super swamper vampires with stock motor and epi clutch. I have broke two stock belts but they lasted longer than my highlifter belt. I was looking at goodyear gatorback and super atv's belt.

the best belt is the stock 700 belt. the bolt that opens the primary is the bolt that holds on the squirrel cage where the dowel pins are...is that the one you lost? there are 2.

I would get a JBS primary for lower starting gear, all you have now is a secondary spring?

It is a M6 and you need a lot of thread length...Dan is right use the longer of the bolts that hold the primary cage on...

The factory 700 belt is same size as 660 but is Kevlar and the best belt available... check with WV HOT Rod...

epi clutch
That could mean anything but if you have high stall wet clutch springs I would recommend going back to stock and for a sheave you should get the Hot Rod sheave it will give you lower gearing from a stop...

Agree. Get the stock 700 belt. If you haven't done your primary sheave yet you need to get that done. Give James at call JBS, he'll set you up right!

Drive Belt

I do a lot of riding in the mountains.
I have a 2009 700 fi rhino bought new in march 2009 and i just pit 12000 klms on it . I change the oil every 1000 kl and the air filter every summer and plug every year greased regularly and checked by a yamaha mechanic every year.

When should i have my drive belt replaced? Does it go by KLMS or yrs?
