I bought a new CVT belt. How do I break it in? 

September 27, 2021

It doesn’t matter if you drive a UTV, ATV or snowmobile,  you’ll need to break your new powersports CVT belt in using two heat cycles. After following proper installation procedures, slowly bring the machine to normal operating temperature without exceeding 3/4 throttle for about 20 minutes. If at all possible, stay on a flat terrain. Let the machine and belt cool down completely – it should take about 30 minutes. Then run your machine through the same process a second time. Lastly, make sure to check the belt height according to the  owner’s manual.
