Since I break belts about every 200-300 miles due to stress, ie; steep soft and wet sand and heavy paddle. (Oregon dunes)
Clutches all aligned and working as good as can be in stock form, no tune.

Would they continue to replace them if these break as often?
How long you getting out of this belt

I haven't tried it, thought I'd ask beforehand as I question whether it will last much longer.
Hopefully a couple hundred more but I'm wondering how good their guarantee was for us who are "belt consumers".

What speed do you run yours in low gear. Yesterday I had a comment that unless there in send or loading on a trailer they never use low gear. Do you run down any roads at higher speeds.

I have not heard that.

Your belt needs heat cycling without overheating, just like brakes. Temp cycle it to condition and temper it.

Your engine is the most expensive part of your vehicle. Be nice to it.

Your belt is your transmission. Don't abuse it.
Your engine IS the most expensive, so break it in aggressively to get pressure behind the rings to seat properly.
Sacrifice the belt or sacrifice the motor. $175 for a belt or $17500 for a motor. You decide.

Break in the motor, you heard the expression, drive it like you stole it. Rings need pressure behind them to seat properly. Vary the RPMs, don't lug it, don't idle any more than necessary. Start it and go. Rings are normally seated within 100 miles. But, using synthetic oil delays that. You can add a zink additive to the oil to help. Then get a new belt to break in properly. Keep the old as a spare.

Two different machines..

The gearing in the X3 is much lower than an OG.
I very seldom run low in X3, where OG I would be in low.

It's a 3 year warranty and a one time replacement. So I guess in the end you still get 2 for the price of 1. Read the warranty info here:

Should have been a period in there somewhere. Just to imply the motor is more expensive then the belt.
