Picked up a 01 auto the other day. I can tell the belt is slipping just from lack of power. Popped the cover and found that a new belt had been put on. The faces that move and drive the belt are glass smooth and have a pretty bad ridge in them towards the top. The clutches themselves dont have bushing play or slop in them. I am an auto mechanic, but this stuff is all new to me. What do i need to do?

1st, download yourself a service manual from countrycat.com, they are under the technical section at the bottom of the home page
2nd, find out if it's the correct belt. If it is, clean it with dish detergent.
3rd, clean the clutch faces (both primary and secondary) with brake cleaner and a scouring pad.

The faces should be smooth.

They all get grooves with wear. X2 check belt thickness with a caliper and compare to factory spec.

Can't find Cat specs but found Dayco specs for width of 1.4" and length at 36.875"

Your best bet is to find a service manual for your machine. They usually answer most of your questions. Google is a great help as well as doing a search in here. Calling Artic Cat should produce results.
