Does anyone know if gates has a replacement belt for the general? I Smoked mine yesterday pulling a friend out of the mud and now have a lot of chattering when taking off from a dead stop. Can I just sand the surface of the pulleys to remove any glazing of there is any to stop the chattering?

remember the rzr's had around 50-55 hp. 100 hp on the general. with more hp easier to smoke a belt. i to have an 800 rzr's about 14,000.00 miles of desert on it. i'm on my second belt. been looking at the general also .

RZR Turbo has over 140hp, RZR 1000XP 110, RZR 1000 s has 100, same motor as the General and it is probably the same belt.

You can check here.

EDIT: it shows a different belt, General only usage.

Todd at Hunterworks will probably know if aftermarket is available.

I have never had good luck with aftermarket belts in anything from BRP, Can-am and Ski Doo. Had great luck with OEM belts. The only thing I did with Commanders is put a Maverick belt on them.

I am surprised that Polaris would have a different belt for this buggy as it supposed to the same as the 1000S.
