With a CVT system there is allot of things that can change when you change the belt size. Best thing to do is to check how much room you have at rest between the sheave and your belt in your primary at rest. Going wider and a touch longer most of the time is better. Too short and the inner part of the belt will run on the sheave guide and create friction at rest making your cart hard to turn over and extra heat added to the crank shaft.

What dos suck is the lack of adjustment in the secondary for how tight the belt is or adjust correct deflection.

Cheers Don.

If it is an ezgo,split the driven clutch, remove the shim and mill it down to a 1/16 thick. This make the belt ride a 1/16 to an 1/8 above the outer edge. This gives good low end and doesn't affect the top end. I personally prefer this over the stresses of the shorter belt, and it's free. Your choice.

It can be. I pulled mine apart and had to turn out a threaded allen key that held the end on. I have a crap load of arctic cat shims and just used them to tighten up the belt the best I could.

I agree this is the best way to fix deflection. You want the belt to bend in the middle about 1" when pressing down on it when at rest. More than 1" that is all wasted low end.

Tell you what I will pull mine apart again and take a bunch of pictures. I am rebuilding my primary anyways and waiting on pin stock.

Cheers Don.
