I use to be a parts manager for Autozone. They carry these types of wrenches standard and they are about the same price as the amazon one shown above but no need to pay shipping. I will be picking up one of these as well because I was unable to get the belt off when I wanted to check the clutches last week.

I just want to put some miles on!

Easier way. Turn around the aluminum spacer that the secondary clutch bolt goes through. Tighten the bolt and it will open the clutch enough to get the belt off. No extra tools required. :thumbsup:

Are all the tools for this included in the supplied tool kit?

Got mine today while running some errands for work at a local parts store, last one on the wall rack, $9.42. I havent tried it yet, but I like the sounds of using the wrench instead of taking the bolt out etc... just me though. Thanks for the info,
Craig

The T-660 has a larger clutch hub. Make sure you get a wrench large enough to fit it.

Thanks Randycat, I picked up the "Boa" from Canadian Tire last night and pulled the driven off today. It was slick, I've never taken a belt off as easy as that. First time I ever did it without losing some skin on my knuckles!

No problem , glad it worked for you . I keep mine in the trunk on the trail , but a couple my buds velcro wraped it inside the engine compartment . one belt change on the trail and it's paid for itself , specially if it's cold out .
Happy ridin'

Okay guys. Can someone please at least show a picture of this strap in use? Just a posed shot of where this is used on the secondary would be helpful. I can finally see the tool and will go get one if I can see where you grab with it. I tried to open my clutch by hand in a DNR Safety class to show the class how to change the drive belt. Not so pretty :/
Thanks.

Not to be a smart ass but on my 08 I use a 9/16" wrench. There's one in the tool kit. It's a little more work but I don't take my belt off on the trail that often to warrant buying another wrench and finding a place to carry it. To each his own.

That's what I do. Can't get much easier than that.
