Thanks I'll look into that. I dont go out to crosby and stuff like that, alot of the guys that come in here already know what they want, and ive never been asked for a carlisle belt before. But I will defiently look into that.

But what ive always heard "Id rather break a belt than a transmission".. Does that statement have any truth to it?

i'm not a big polaris fan but the polaris rzr is awesome. i've seen one in action at crosby/outlaws atv park. it was jacked up, with some muddzilla tires, and snorkled and could hang with the best of the fourwheelers. the stock belts can be easily replaced with heavy duty aftermarket belts that are made for hard work. i recommend highlifter.com and if you decide to get real serious, cause you'll probably get the play itch, check this place out.

i would have to agree with you on that one, i would hate to replace a transmission also. FWIW, stock belts are just that, stock. The majority of the UTV vehicle owners will bring their units back to an authorized repair center for work, including belt changes. upgrading the belts on these units is not much different than upgrading the tires on your (very sexy) 600RR. It's a matter of personal preference. I for one would prefer carlisle to stand behind my belt for 2 years than for polaris to tell me my item is not covered b/c it's a "wear item". BTW, i don't know what you do for pasaden honda, but your parts guys can find Carlisle belts in their Parts Unlimited ATV catalog.

on a side note, does Will McDonald or Bo Brown still work in that shop? If so punch them for me. JET
