Usually aftermarket belts are never as good as the OEM...I'm open minded, but does anyone have any proof that the Gates C12 is as dependable or better than the original? Don't wanna find out the hard way in the middle of the sand dunes with a shredded belt.

lots of folks using them and I don't recall a single reported issue with them so far. For half the price, if it is even close to as good as the OEM belt, I will continue to use it.

if you have a decent dealer they should give you a new belt. Make sure you get all of the pieces out of the sheeve. Get a spare and change it on the trail next time.

Biggest problem I had when I blowed up my belt was it took out the CVT cover too. Like $109 if I remember correctly. Problem is my memory is about as long as my dinky.
