ok this may sound silly but i have a heck of a time removing and installing my belt on my 05 sabercat 700, is there a tool that would help with this? i grab my belts on the 580's i have and they come right off, this one is a PITA....
I had a tough time taking off the belt on my 98 zrt 600 untill I figured out how easy is it to remove the belt. Turn the secondary clutch clockwise and pull on the belt towards you while you turn the clutch. The belt should start to come off the clutch when you turn the clutch clockwise a few turns. My ZRT belt removes on the directions I just gave you and I hope it helps you on your cat.
Not sure if your secondary is the same as my crossfire but i just set the parking brake and get my wrench out and take the bolt out like i was going to take the seconday off.. Then i pull that aluminum jobber-dew out of the end of the clutch and flip it around and put the bolt back in and tighten it back up.. Doing that opens the clutch and i can take the belt off..
Try taking a small piece of belt and pull up on the belt and push in on the piece of belt. Pushing the piece of belt in will leave the seaves open and you can leave it in there till you get other belt on!
