yeah they are rediculous.. i usually put it on the primary and get it started going over the top of the secondary and basically turn the clutch clockwise by hand and walk the sled backwards or use something to prop the back end up so the track is free and do it that way

I keep a strap wrench in my trunk very easy belt removal, put strap on helix Ebrake on ,turn strap clockwise sheaves open up. Takes less than 2 min with absolutely no struggling.

what the helks a strap wrench?[/b]
A strap wrench has handle with a rubber strap attached to 1 side, then you wrap it around what you trying to remove then back to the handle.Then you turn the wrench and it tightens the strap.Its kind of like an oil filter wrench.

If you have the stock 10" secondary, i'ts the easiest thing to do. Just spin in the plastic (if you haven't ditched it yet for a nice aluminum one) deflection adjuster to open the secondary all the way. Then, just roll the belt off. Put the new one over the primary first, hoding it sideways to get it betwen the clutch and the foam rubber **** on the side of the belly pan. Then just roll it on the secondary. It helps if you have the track jacked up, cuz you'll need to spin the secondary for this and to get the deflection adjusted right.
Now, if you have a 10.4" secondary on it, have fun with that. It's right up against the foot well.

Good luck
