    Belts-do they break like those on SXS? Spares

    Thinking about the belt and a spare. Does it break as easy as others, or do the smaller weights and better belts mean that there are fewer belt problems than a side by side? After break in.

    What other spares only for the Ace 570 do you carry? I carry straps, tools, wrenches, hi-lifter, belts and other parts on my Wildcat when we go riding. Wonder what to add for the Ace 570.

    Any CVT that is abused will break/burn belts. The 325 and 570 ACE are probably less prone to it, but the 900 will probably see a lot of burned/snapped belts from people putting huge tires on it and/or drag racing.
    I carried a spare belt with my ACE, and the tools to change it. But never needed it.

    Thank you! That's a great link.

    I have most of all that stuff, plus a 12 V extension cord for the air pump. I am making that water pump sprayer for the front of the ACE someone recommended. The radiator is very exposed to plugging.

    Being a new Ace owner, have to ask, does it come with a tool kit and if so, where is it? Every bike I have has one. Having to take enough tools to do a teardown, replace belt, on the trail sure doesn't give a person much confidence.

    The Ace tool kit should be stored under the front storage box in a black pouch. Well that is where my one was from new.

    Yeah, that's where it should be, but since it is not tucked away all safe under the seat like ATVs, it tends to go missing before the ACE reaches the end user. Ask the dealer for it.

    I have never had to change a belt in 20 years of riding Polaris and I personally don't know anyone else that has either.
    I don't worry about it too much.
    Maybe I am not doing something right.

    I carry a spare belt and the tools to change it out on the trail. I did the same with my sportsman 800 but never had to do it. I just change the belt at 100 hours(it still looks in good shape with little wear) and keep the old one with the machine for a spare.It gives me peace of mind knowing I have a belt with me if it breaks in the middle of no-where. Low-range is your friend when it comes to long belt life,when in doubt at low speeds-use it!

    My friend burned a belt in his Grizzly at the Paiute trail. I think he wasn't using low gear enough during the climbs. We had a spare and the tools to change it, which saved us from a pretty difficult ordeal of dragging him back to town and hoping we could find a belt within a 100 mile radius, or leaving the rig up there. It's a small thing to pack a spare belt and tools, and potentially very beneficial.

    Is the OEM belt the best option?
