If you don't keep the cam plate tight against the rollers during install, they can fall out and cause the issue you're seeing. It should ride right to the top!

On a side note... I changed my UTV Inc spring (purple and white) to an EPI orange, and I couldn't be happier. The purple/white spring is barely stronger than stock and doesn't do much, especially with any mods.

99.9% of the "horror" stories are due to improper installation.
I agree ive had it apart alot my son had it apart and together before i got back so i didnt give it a second look even though the belt didnt seem right (dumb me) im thinking he may have not kept it tight together.

It cannot be the secondary spring...

The problem has to be the belt is not low enough on the primary sheave...

Only two ways that happens...one is there is a lip on the fixed half of the primary sheave that is stopping the belt from dropping to it's lowest point...the other is the cam plate is not sitting down all the way onto the sheave hub/seal...

The only thing that would stop the cam plate from sitting all the way down on the seal is an od weight in wrong...or the cam plate wedged for some strange reason...

I assume you took the primary off to change the secondary spring...my guess is same as most above...weight got displaced during assembly...

When you take the outer cover off...rev it in neutral to the rev limiter and if the belt doesn't rise up all the way to top of sheave and then some the weights are displaced...

Also look at the holes in the cam plate and see if there is a gap between the plate and the sheave hub...should not be a gap...
