Sled: 2002 ZR500, 2002 ZR500 CC, 2002 ZR800 CC
I have a 2002 ZR800 Cross Country. Sled utilizes OEM 0627-021 drive belt. So does the 2003 ZR900. However, there's a very expensive ($80) optional belt which is 0627-035. Does anyone know the difference? And, is it worth it? Plus, will it fit the ZR800 series sleds? Could use some help with this. Can't find answers from local CAT dealer. Thanks, Jon

If it will fit the 900's it will fit the 800's. It's probably a harder compound, I think it was originally made for the Firecats. If I'm thinking of the right thing, we used one once and didn't like it. However, we didn't change any of our other clutching to work with it, just didn't want to take the time. We even use the 020 belt on a bunch of our sleds. It's a softer compound made for the lower hp sleds. We feel it doesn't slip as much as the stock belt.

Why the 020 belt over the recommended 021 version? Thanks for your input!

I had an 02 ZR 800 and I ran the 020, but now I have an 04 900 and I was told to only run the 035. If you guys aren't having any problems with the softer compounds then I would run those and save yourself some cash.

So help me understand the advantages of these belts, please!

For my 2002 ZR800 CCE, the stock belt is the 0627-021. Then, some guys are saying they run the 627-020 as it's slightly softer. And then there's the expensive 627-035 which is harder than the first two. SO, what's the scoop? Softer compound shifts easier and grabs the clutch sheaves easier? Harder compound does what? Here's my deal.............. I want a belt that will stand up to hard acceleration and have lower risk of breaking at high speeds. I know the 627-035 is costly, like $80, but is it worth it for life expectancy, and strength? Also, how doe is change the shifting of the sled?
Thanks, Jon

I may have my 020 and 021 belts confused about which one is softer. Either way, we do use the softer ones on our 900s and 975s. With proper clutching, they don't seem to have durability problems. If we're at higher altitude, or it's a warm day, we'll put on a harder belt to "band-aid" bad jetting and compensate for losing RPMs.

Just so you don't necessarily take my numbers as fact. I'm not 100% sure without checking which belt is which, and I don't have the capability of checking right at the moment.
