2004 Arctic Cat 650 Twin Clutch Cover Problem

Is there a method to test the Belt Failure Detection Switch? My son shredded a belt and the Belt Failure Detection Switch was tripped to the OFF position. The manual says, " the V-belt cover and switch assembly must be replaced." before I spend the $250, I'd like to know if it really is a bad switch. Can it be bypassed?

An RF filter installed last year. Lymp mode was no longer an issue until now.
Here's the details: I replaced the belt, turned the switch to the ON (back) position. The belt light was still blinking. I jumped the wires to reset lymp mode, but it would not reset, unless the Belt Failure Detection Switch is in the OFF position. With the belt switch in the OFF position I reset lymp mode. Belt light is off. Next I turned the switch to the ON position. Now the belt light is off, but the machine is still running in lymp mode, like only one cylinder is firing.


Any suggestions???

Yes, I have read the v2 belt light sections. These were very helpful. Using this information, I have successfully reset the solid green belt warning light for the 100 hours service as well as the blinking warning belt warning lymp mode. I have reset the lymp mode using the reset plug as well jumping the 2 wires.

Put in a new clutch cover with the integrated belt warning switch and new seal for $270. Turns out the "C" shaped metal bar next to the "On" "Off" switch was mangled from the shredded belt.

The new clutch cover and switch are working well. The machine is not struck in limp mode and is running again.
