    Details

      EPI builds their Severe Duty CVT Drive Belt using a double cog style belt made of aramide tensile cord so you’ll get excellent power transfer and lower clutch heat. And with EPI’s manufacturing consistency you get a belt with superior quality and closer tolerances, meaning less slipping and more reliable operation. Keep your wheel turning with an EPI Severe Duty CVT Drive Belt on your UTV.

      Specs:
    • Made for hard use and heavy loads
    • Reduced clutch heat with double cog design
    • Higher load capability and less slip with aramid tensile cord (non-cotton)
    • Close tolerances, exacting specifications, and precise dimensions give consistent operation
    • NOTE: If you are continually blowing belts, your clutches are getting too hot. Improving your clutching with a clutch kit will decrease belt slippage and decrease belt heat.
    • NOTE: Modifications to the original equipment of the ATV (e.g. clutches and oversize tires) may cause loads or system conditions that change and adversely affect the performance of the CVT drive belt system.
    • NOTE: If you are frequently wearing out your drive belt, please have a certified mechanic check your clutch alignment and settings.

    Mine went about 2000 miles under severe conditions.
    I put this belt on almost immediately after purchasing my 2018 RZR 1000 XP 4 seater. Most of the 2000 miles I put on it before it blew were at 75 percent or more of weight capacity being driven at average speed of about 35 throughout Nevada mountains . When it did finally blow I had been riding uphill at 50-60 mph in 100 degree heat near the grand canyon fairly loaded up weight wise. Clutches were super hot. I was at first very disappointed but then I realized I hadn’t done a yearly swap-out . So mine went almost 2000 miles under pretty severe conditions. Not bad!
    I will have 2 spares now with me when I am riding very far from home..

    The EPI belt has exceeded my expectations
    I’ve put 5000 miles on it, in the desert in Arizona, slick rock in Utah, and the trails and beaver ponds of Northern British Columbia and it’s still looks like new. I blow the dust out of the belt/clutches every couple of months, but have always given it a good workout.

    Fantastic belt
    I changed my belt after 1500 miles expecting to see some abuse. Belt looked well broke in but zero wear or cracks. Gave me a little piece of mind after blowing a stick belt around the first 300 miles. 2012 wildcat 4seat 1000.

    Terrible quality...lasted only 60 miles including thorough break-in.
    After 1,351 miles on my OEM Polaris belt, it finally blew a small chunk of the belt; I replaced it with a brand new EPI belt, broke it in thoroughly, and after 60 miles the EPI belt was completely destroyed. I will surely never buy another EPI belt...they are absolute garbage. Stick to the OEM Polaris belts.

    Brake it in properly it will outlast any stock belt. Ran epi in the past belts and clutch kits on atvs. Was happy with performance and durability.

    Is this belt comparable in dimensions with the original Artic Cat belt 0823-496? I don't mind it heavier duty or just stronger but I would like it close to original spec.
    JOHN C L on Oct 18, 2016
    BEST ANSWER: This belt is meant to fit exactly to whatever machine it is ordered for meaning it has the same overall dimensions as an OEM belt, but made with different material or in a different process making it a little stronger. I don't have that OEM belt to compare, but it should be nearly identical in size.
    The previous owner of my 18 Can Am X3 Turbo state that he tried this belt and it had a tendency to cause the sxs
    in protection mode at times. Have you heard any issues about this?
    CHRISTOPHER T on Jul 17, 2019
    BEST ANSWER: Sorry, I can’t offer a specific answer. I purchased this belt as a severe duty back up in case of failure of the original equipment belt. I do a lot of long off-road rides and carry extra parts. Fortunately, I’ve never had to use it.
    Will this fit my 2015 Can am maverick 1000 xxc?
