How come a 72 cheeta 340 kawasaki drive belt works good on my 74 Lynx II 340? My 74 calls for a 1.25"x 43.3/16" My 72 calls for a 1.3/16' x 43.1/8" I have a comet duster P94 on my 74. When I run the correct belt on the Lynx its dies at idle and the belt is way to tight, so I put the belt from my 72 on the 74 Lynx and its perfect??

It sounds like your Duster is set up for a 1 3/16" belt. You could add shims under the movable sheave to space it out for a 1 1/4" belt, that's how they're made to adjust for different belt widths. Or you could continue running the 1 3/16 belt and not worry about it. By rights your probably losing some low end performance by running the narrower belt, but if you're just trail riding the sled you'll probably never notice the difference.
