06 Sportsman Belt ?

Recommended Posts

I have an 06 Sportsman 500. I have about 700 miles on it. How soon should I look forwad to replacing the belt on this thing? I know there are may variables that would factor into the belt condition, etc. Is this another item that I shoud add to the list of things to pack into my cargo box for trips? Does anyone have troubles with them going to #$!! on them while they are riding? Is there a certain age/mileage to look out for? Thanks!

i just replace them when they break. my sportsman has over 6,000 miles and ive only had to put 2 new belts on it(and i ride pretty hard). i would def have one along on trips. how you ride all depends on how long the belt will last. ive never had a belt just expold like on my snowmobile. it always just broke the top layer and made a slapping noise as it hit the cover so ive always been able to get it back home to change it.

They can last a long time. Important to use low range when going slow on technical trails, plowing etc. I have about 2,000 miles on mine. It is just fine. If you do want to carry a replacement be sure to use only the Polaris brand part. It's the only one that fits properly.

People have been getting 5000 miles out of their belts. I agree with Tyler and Hafnutz on carrying an extra.

I am usually careful about using low when I should, etc. I am glad to see that it should be a few thousand miles before I have to worry about it! I will buy a spare, anyway....cheap insurance! Thanks for the info!

    • Thanks MJ   It's nice for the picture and follow up video you catch a lot that gets missed after the picture.

    • Hello from the NW Angle!   Minnesota walleye fishing has been great using bottom bouncers and a night crawler. Anglers are being selective to fill limits with 16-18” fish as well as a few over 28 released. Most success has been in the mud, off of structure in 21-23 feet and 26-30 feet. The largest fish seem to come from South of Garden Island on crank-baits.   Canadian walleye are also most effectively targeted with bottom bouncers and spinners. Depth has not been as important as being at the bottom of a break line in the flat. Gold with chartreuse has been best as of late.  Musky activity has slowed from the prior weeks but expect it to ramp up with the full moon approaching. Perch have been schooled up on and around reefs topping out around 30 feet.   Water temps remain consistently in the low to mid 70’s.    Remember - fall is the time for trophy fish up at the NW Angle!   Until next week,   Sunset Lodge
    • It seems to be working😉
    • I've heard good things about the Browning's. 
    • Just curious- what about your old now is making you switch?   I've shot both and have no real concerns with either. Elite makes a nice bow and has several good options over the past few years. But... regardless of brand there are lots of good options out there. Shoot what feels good to you and hits where you're aiming. Totally generic,  but good advice IMO. 
    • I was surprised by that too Wanderer. I bought 2 of them about a month ago and am giving them a whirl. I've got 3 on bear baits right now. I'll have a feel for them in a couple weeks. 
    • I did not last year and I am not sure about this year.  I would sure like to.  New job and some new help at the hunt didnt allow me time to volunteer last year.  Hope this year is different.
    • The Moultrie M50 was rated 81/100 on Trailcam pro.  I was surprised to see the majority of the highest rated cameras were Browning.  I like the Browning brand for firearms but have considered many of their other products to be mid-level offerings.
    • I'm not sure Hoyt4 I've never messed with the video part. I'll take a look when I get home.
