Typically OEM belts are the best. EPI also has a good product. Polaris all but runs a sled clutch, they're hard on belts.

Does that correct the constant belt slippage issues that these clutches seem to all have? Or is there any way to fix the belt slippage in these CVT's?

Yes and no. By manipulating the engagement you change the conditions that the belt is engaged under. That makes sense huh? A better way to say it is if you make the clutch act in a way that keep the belt engaged rather than engaging and disengaging all the time you'll extend the belts life. A tighter secondary and lighter primary will accomplish that. How much of each depends on your tires, elevation and what you want to make the machine do. Thats why I use Speedwerx, they know what I need when I tell them what I want a machine to do.

Nope, there really isn't a way on the Ranger to stop slip. Lacking a wet clutch is a sentence to a life of slipping the belt. I make an effort to keep the belt engaged when I'm running the Ranger around. It's difficult when a guy is crawling or other low speed stuff.

Sounds like Polaris needs to hire Yamaha to build their clutches at least. How long does a belt on a Ranger usually last? I've had a couple Yamaha ATV's that pulled over 3k before I replaced the belts and only replaced them because I had the case open for inspection.

My Crew has around 10,300 miles on it and according to the previous owner it's been through 3 or 4. I expect to put another one on before summer as a matter of maintenance. Granted it was a rental and that can be pretty hard service, but the guy is diligent about maintenance. I have an Arctic Cat 4 wheeler that I brutalize almost every time it's out and the belt is trouble free.
