Stock belts? Your geared way lower than stock now. I would think its more of a matter of air flow

I was going to suggest the blower. The blow hole was the brand i was thinking of. A belt temp gage may be of some use. At least let you know when to let it cool. It would also let you know if it was running cooler in high range than low. A cvt is less efficient the closer it gets to full shift.

Gilomen Innovations makes an adjustable clutch kit that i think would help. Engages sooner and grips the belt well. I run one in mine on 4" portals 15% and 30's. Never a belt issue... but i dont run the deep stuff.
Make sure the rollers on the spider aren't shot and binding.

When you pull the weights from the primary, check the rollers on the spider. Use as much finger pressure as you can and roll them. They should not feel squeaky or bind at all. A tell tale sign they are getting bad are chatter marks on the weights.

Isn't there a recall out for that? From what I'm hearing, they have to put a couple of shims in the clutch to fix that.
