This is crazy I thought one dealer 30 miles from me quoted me 179.00 for a new belt I thought this was high so I thought I would call the other dealer that's also 30 miles the other way from me and it was 135.00 so needless to say I will be buying the cheaper one I made sure it was the same belt they are both OEM it's for a 800 max 2012

I have the Gates Carbon Fiber belt. I have about 5500kms (3400 miles) on it, Quiet and less than BRP! Gates also has a Kevlar belt that is great also and WAY less than BRP!

We sell tons of the Gates G belts as a direct replacement for the OEM. The C is a little stronger, but also a harder compound and can eat into the clutch faces over time and I don't usually recommend them.

Never had good luck with Dayco belts. Only Gates and OEM here. That's with 20 years of snowmobile racing, ATV, motorcycle and small engine service too.

I assume the belts for the 800 and 1000 are the same from 2012-2015?
