Designed using Finite Element Analysis (FEA) techniques, which includes the latest construction, material, and measuring technologies, Gates® G-Force® drive belts are designed for superior fit, performance, and durability for today's recreational and utility all-terrain equipment. As the first of a new generation of Continuously Variable Transmission (CVT), G-Force® belts are constructed with double- or single-cog designs for an exact match to the OEM belt. Extreme testing in controlled environments, as well as on race vehicles, has proven the G-Force® belt to be high performing and durable, with no clutching adjustments necessary at installation.

Your Gates® G-Force® Belt can handle it. Whether you're taking your snowmobile on the mountainside or your ATV out for a wild ride, Gates® G-Force® belts are built for the toughest trails. Developed with proprietary design software and combined with the most advanced composite materials, G-Force® belts are engineered to meet the demands of your powersports equipment.
If you don’t break the belt in properly, you’ll find yourself shredding the belt instead of the terrain. In fact, most powersports belt failures can be attributed to improper break-in and clutch adjustment – or not breaking in the belt at all. Follow these three steps to ensure the best performance and longest life from your G-Force® belt. 1. Install the Right Belt. Using a belt that’s even slightly different than OE specifications can affect performance and stop you in your tracks. 2. Align and Clean. Align the clutches according to manufacturer specifications, and clean the sheaves with a Scotch-Brite™ pad. Remove old belt residue, glazing, oils and debris with alcohol or acetone on the clutch sheave area. Do not use brake cleaner. 3. Install and Break It In. Perform two heat cycles in 20 miles. Conservatively run through the entire shift range, without exceeding ¾ throttle. Bring the belt back to normal operating temperature (15 minutes) then shut down and completely cool the belt for 30 minutes. Repeat the process.
