did u put the clutch and helix back together good seems like u had a lot of slipping for that belt to blow in 15 minutes being brand new and normal driving ?

new belts need to be broke in right or will grenade real quick from slipping

I was in high. I was wondering about the helix.. I can open the secondary with the tool and it goes in easy no binding on the helix from what I can tell.

Get ahold of todd at hunterworks and explain your situation to him. Hes real knowledable on the dalton kit and mavericks. Damn that sucks though

I'm hoping that it was driver error and I just got carried away with the go pedal to quick and didn't let the belt break in enough

The worst part is that when the belt broke it busted up my clutch cover

Belt temp gauge is needed, and it's a tricky speed because it's too low for high and too high for low

When I put the clutch kit in I ran it without the cover on the clutch and the clutches opened up smoothly.. And the temp gauge is my next investment.

If you have an IR thermometer check your belt temps. Ideal belt temps after a hard run or 2 should be 150 to 200 range. I don't trust the Gates belt myself (seen some mixed results), but neither Gates or Can Am belts should blow out that quick unless there is a problem.

Well figured out what was wrong after the secondary flew off. I must of not torque it enough.

We'll that would do it. I hope you used a new bolt on the secondary. They can't be reused there a torque to yield bolt. They stretch when torqued. Must replace every time. Glad you got it figured out though.
