You'll find a post on here somewhere where I doubted a spare belt. After 6 years of running the factory belt on my RZR 800, I never saw a reason to carry a spare. Well, now I'm eating crow.I will have to get a spare. Might never need it but... Got overconfident thinking I wouldn't get a flat either so I didn't put the tire repair kit in the general. That worked out real well! Got a flat with less than 60 miles on the machine.
