    MANY FACTORS CONTRIBUTE TO CVT BELT FAILURE 

     

    Want to know what is hardest on your CVT belt? Bigger tires, grit making its way past your CVT cover, poorly working clutches, and high horsepower engine modifications all take their toll, but the biggest killer of your CVT belt is heat.

     

    All CVT belts look similar, but it’s what beneath the surface that counts. At the heart of every belt is a series of cords that do the job of transmitting the engine power to the transmission and wheels. You can see the cords on the side where they meet the surface of the rubber compound they are encased in. The differences are in the details of how the fiber cords are treated, and the rubber polymers that are heat and wear resistant. It’s extremely important that the fiber cords distribute stress evenly. The job of the rubber is to grip the clutch faces and hold the cord in place.

     

    BELT FACTORS

     

    • Belt quality and composition
    • Belt dimensions
    • Lack of proper break-in of new belts
    • Exposure to dirt, oil, sand, water
    • Compromised belt integrity due to improper handling and storage

     

     

     

     

    SYSTEM ISSUES

    • Misaligned clutches
    • Dirty or damaged clutches
    • Power changes and vehicle modifications beyond stock without clutch tuning or adjustment

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

    DRIVING CONDITIONS

    • Improper clutch use (not matched to vehicle, driving style or terrain)
    • Larger wheels/tires
    • Racing; prolonged open-throttle riding
    • Riding in deep mud, sand or snow
    • Rock-crawling or prolonged steep hill-climbs
    • Towing or pushing heavy loads

     

    INCREASED POWER + INCREASED WEIGHT + INCREASED SPEED = MORE BELT FAILURE
