Exclamation CVT Belt

Just a note on what is not working.........

I have 3 rides at the dunes and around 10 hours and had a belt brake.

The belt seems to be the weak point with all the power the Maverick is putting out. The belt is difficult to access, but easy to change. I did make some mods to help with the storage bin removal for access to the CVT cover.

I now carry an extra belt, small 1/4 rachet and a special tool for plastic rivet removal. I expect the next belt change to be possible in the field instead of my shop and should take less than an hour.

Everyone should do a dry run on CVT belt access if you want an option to repair in the field.

A spare belt was the 1st purchase I made for my Mav, befor it even left the garage for the 1st time. The belt is not the weak link. Infact the stock belt is about as good of a belt as you can get. It's the primary clutch that sux. The design is for the inner and outer sheaves to slip in the event of a spike load. Problem being they also slip under heavy exceleration, as well as under heavy load. This generates excessive heat in the belt and causes it to fail, as ANY belt would. Commander guys have been dealing with the same crappy primary design for a few years now. I think you are right though, the added power of the Mav has highlighted this deficiency in the clutch.

2 Belt failures same mileage points...its a problem

I had my first belt shred at 666 miles. Had it replaced at the shop non warranty and unit was only 2 months old. 2nd failure at 1221 miles, It is an issue and it seems Can Am knows but won't admit to it for obvious reasons! Have owned numerous other units and never had this type of premature failure. Time to learn the repair for field use for both times I have been stranded about 10 miles from the pick up!
