2000 Arctic Cat 500 auto 4wheeler belt question?

Hi,
I am very new here & to four wheelers but I have a question I hope someone here can help me with? I have a 2000 500 auto 4wheeler I recently purchased with 1300 miles. i have been told belts are an issue with these machines after I bought it so I wanted to replace it. I bought a manual on line it makes no mention of a belt for this machine. Does anyone know if this machine has a belt that needs replaced or if it is gear driven? Any input would be much appreciated.
Thank You

Whoever told you belts are an issue on these machine doesn't know what they are talking about, belts with 10 000 miles on them are not unheard of.

Ok thats good to hear the reason I am asking is I was out riding it over the weekend & I went thru a bunch of big mudholes & the last one I went thru it seemed like something was slipping so I was thinking maybe the belt or the clutch.

I guess I will have to take it apart to see whats up in there.

Probably just got water in there. check all of your connections for the belt exhaust and intake.
