I have read the 67 is a softer compund. My sled takes the 65, how long do you think the 67 would last on my sled. I ask because you can get the 67 belts for about $30. Do you think it would make a season on my '00 XC700?

I would try it and see, even if it does wear faster you get them cheaper so it will all even out. You will just have to replace the belts more often. It also depends on how you ride, if you putt along it will last 10x as long as if your always on the throttle.

The 067 belt is totally different from your 065 belt. Your 065 belt is for 12.5" center to center and is 1 7/16" wide. The 067 belt is for 12" center to center and is 1 3/8" wide. Two totally different animals.

I agree they may be different compounds as well but put the belt on the sled that belongs there.

If the belts are different sizes don't run it, it will cause havoc. Only if the belt is slightly "stickier" would i run it.

Nice catch on that one! If you see any 57's on ebay. They will work. Stay with the.Dayco's. Warranty and work

The 073 Polaris belt is the soft compound replacement for the old and obsolete/discontinued 057 Storm belt, they are good for drag racing but will wear out a lot quicker if you use them for trail riding.

that is like saying, "will these 5 inch wide tires work on my corvette". not enough traction, just like the 67 belt. just put on the right belt. there is a reason it is more expensive.

There are always deals on belts if your search on Ebay.
