I took mine apart and inspected for damage, reset and regreased. As long as you are there you might as well. When my belt came apart there were chunks of it everywhere and the sredded cords of the belt were wrapped around the sheave pretty bad. It would have been tough to get it cleaned out without removing it.

I can only imagine that pieces are everywhere. I found a few pieces on the floor of my trailer

It wouldnt hurt since you are in there but I am sure everything is fine. Throw a new belt on and forget it.....

Do you run a CVT Filter? If you do get rid of it and you wont have anymore belt problems. If you keep the CVT Filter you better keep an extra belt.

Did I miss something? I thought CVT filters were a good thing I have been running one since day one.

Alot of these guys believe that the filter creates excess heat which causes premature belt failures

Stock belt?
And yes, inspect the rollers.

Here is my take on it......... Someone, Somewhere figured they could make money by trying to sale filters for the CVT. They convinced others that dirt/sand would hurt the CVT System.

I have not been able to find anybody that has done damage to their CVT from dirt or sand.....

CVT's have been around for a long time and nobody has ever put a filter on them.

Dirt will not hurt your CVT..... Heat is the worst enemy of the CVT System. The filter will restrict the air flow and the CVT will heat up. This will cause the belt to wear faster and harden the grease in the sheave..... Yamaha put the breather there for air flow.... They knew it needed to be kept cool.

3500+ Miles on my Rhino with no CVT Filter and no problems.

CVT filters are STUPID!!!!! They will clog up and eventually fry your belt. They are not neccesary.
