Sled: 2005 F7
I'm an Arctic Cat newbie. Bought my first cat, 2005 F7 EFI with DD.
Due to my lack of intelligence, I need to ask this question. How do you physically remove the belt after it is off the secondary? It doesn't appear to fit between the body panel and the drives. Please help!

If it is like mine (2005 F7R Efi with the 2004 chaincase non-DD) it will fit between the body pan and the clutch. you just need to compress the foam it will go good luck.

It will fit, it's tight, but you can get it by the primary.

It is easier if you rip out that foam. It is just there for sound dampening.

What they said above...Have the sled's rear end rise up so the tracks can rotate freely by helping you putting the belt on alot easier too.

That's been a small complaint of mine for a long time. There's just not enough room to pull the belt off the primary very easily. Granted, once you do it a few times you kind of get a feel for it and it gets easier. But it's a tight squeeze, and you will have to "work it" off the side. Try and turn the belt over so it's flat between the side of the primary and belly pan/foam. And then spin the primary to work it through if need be. That's worked for me in the past.

Good luck

i to am new to cat. My question is how do you put the new belt on. can u just yank on it like other sleds or do u have to take the secondary off thats what my dealer was saying. also is it true that the belt will stretch out alot that i have to reshim my clutch after about 250 miles?

i never heard of that, all ya gott do is put it around the primary then start to wrap the belt on the bottom of the secondary, then grab the belt and the secondary and pull on it as if the sled were to go forward, quite simple but hard to explain haha.

Push on the end of the helix in while pushing down on the belt that is on there. This will sink the belt into the secondary so you can get the belt off. Now a strap wrench on the outter part of the helix will allow you to turn the secondary open. Or just push like he!! on the end of the helix by hand and roll on the new belt.


If you think this it tuff try the new 06 10.4" secondary....can you say bloody knuckes?
