adjusting belt tension.

Buddy of mines got a 95 xlt indy 600, He's got a new belt but it still slips, we were wondering how you tighten up the clutch. Old belt was replaced with the factory polaris belt made for his sled. First belt got burnt up towing another sled.

Always out numbered, never out gunned.

you have to lossen the three little bolts on the secondary clutch then turn the plate i think clockwise then tighten the bolts up. pick up the track and run it alittle then repeat as neccisary

Take a look at where the belt makes contact in the primary. Most times, if you burn a belt up, there will be a black ring of rubber residue in the clutch. Clean that off and scuff the area with sandpaper or a green scotchbrite pad and the clutch will engage a bit easier without slipping.

Adjust as bigbear said, trying for about 1/8" of belt riding out of the secondary.

Thanks for the info, He cleaned his clutch and scuffed where the belt rides. He said it bites better then when he got it. problem solved.
