Hi,
This is my first post here but Iv'e been reading these forums for a while to get answers to my questions.
I ride a 2004 Polaris Indy and on the weekend ride that saw a couple of jaunts up to 85-90 mph.
On my way back it felt like a skip in the gear train but on further investigation I saw the inside cogs had left the belt for about 8"
Iv'e included a picture. I went out the next day with a spare belt and after about 60 miles I felt the skip again, checked the belt and lo and behold about four inches of cogs had gone.Is it the secondary clutch bottoming out?
Thanks a lot guys, keep on sledding Broken Belt.jpg

Belts that are several years old can do that, even if they aren't used.

If it's doing that to new belts, I'd check the clutch shimming.

Have you done any clutching to it? Team or button secondary? Ive seen that happen when not putting enough shims behind the helix when running a narrow belt with a R series helix.

No I haven't touched anything and it didn't blow a belt all last season. Would you know where to get the specs so I can measure everything and make sure that is isn't out of alignment?
Thanks for your help guys.
