Yes the belt is .040 wider and it is a 1/8 inch taller giving it alot better bite on the sheaves versus the stock belt and a higher shift out ratio like Chris had said. It is also made with more p-aramid cords per square inch then other belts making it one of the strongest in the industry. Plus they are using a different rubber compound which elimanates slippage and belt wear. So if you have done mods or have big aggresive tires this is the belt you should have. Thanks Dale!
I'm a former Polaris Sport 400 drag racer and have used high dollar belts such as HPD's. I gained 2 tenths in 300ft. using them. The only down side is increased clutch sheave wear. The belts are very aggressive.
BMP is offering a special on there wide belts for ranger 700 xp, just mention you seen this on prc forum and get the belt for 75.00. If you have a roller secondary but are not set up to run the wide belt you will need to purchase a couple of shims which are 10.00 for two. Bmp will also install these shims in your clutch free of charge.
If you have any questions you can email me at [email protected] or call me at 715-294-4575. Thanks Dale!
OK COB here new to the site but not quads. I was asked some questions by a member of this site and had come see what is going on as all this ranger stuff is new to me. I am involved with HEELCLICKER clutch kits so all this clutch talk interest me. I had never heard or seen the BIKEMAN kit till this eve so have some questions.
I see the claims of improved top end I would like to know how that is being achieved with addition of a kit? My understanding of clutches is that they are a set ratio, you can not change that and thus can not add top end. If I am wrong would be interested in knowing how it duz work, always willing to learn some thing new.
What is the engagement RPMs with this kit installed? if you have a steeper HELIX how do you not lose top end rather than gain?
Ok question on the belt, if the belt is a harder compound how is it not going to cause premature wear on the sheaves. I tested some belts for GATOR, by GOODYEAR BELTS. They claim harder compound I showed slipping and wear with 500 miles on them, no doubt in my mind that they would have shown premature wear if left long enough. The edges of the belt had pieces missing and they were slipping bad. Had one on a 700 for the 100 miles other on my 2006 800 for almost 500 miles. Had one on a 2007 500 X2 and it slipped with less than 50 miles on it. from my experiece you aren't going to beat a stock POLARIS BELT no more off brand belts for me.
