Check the engine mounts and make sure they are not wore out and allowing the engine to travel back to far and not put any tention on the belt. Also check the little tention cable under the air box to see if it is broken or in need of adjusting. Another thing to check is the little c-clip on the inner part next to the transmission/axle of the drive shaft on the rear clutch system. It may be missing and not allowing the clutch to keep the belt riding high.

Are you running the original air box assy? If so just onhook the hose at the carb, fold it out of the way and test drive it. If it runs better amy have air box sealing problems.
