I think so. we're not really in the snow belt like we're used to be, but we'll see some good snows from mid December to sometimes late March.. it won't be polished and no kinks but I'll definitely get some user out of it this season!

I just took it for a spin around the lot tonight! it feels great! I need a belt that fits correctly and some controls to come in the mail. WOW! the ole JAG has much more power!! What little I rode it, it seemed solid enough to tie up with new lines, clean and button up.. the hood of course still needs some cutting up unfortunately.

I've got to ask, does anybody here know how to configure belt size without a belt. I'm just trial and error-ing it right now. there's the Polaris belts I have(too long) a 570 exciter belt (too short) and the old ac jag belt that seems to fit great. the jag belt is 1 1/4 and I need 1 3/8. I'm afraid if I ordered a jag belt length in 1 3/8 it would be too short. any tips from the pros???

OEM Arctic Cat Part
This is a newer high cog belt
Dimensions of this belt are 1.406" W x 48.071" L
Note:
0627-020 belts used to have short cogs on the outside of the belt. Those belts were 1.400" W x 47.750" L. Arctic Cat has changed them and the new belts now have high cogs on the outside of the belt, as well as a longer dimension spec because of the taller cogs.

To configure,.....the way I do it, may not be right but works, is pull the springs from both clutches and put together. Install and open the secondary and close the primary and check deflection. Should not be tight but taunt. The factory belt is calling for #0227-014 or #w222-1093 and is suppose to be 45.50" long. Width is suppose to be 1 1/4". Not sure but (I think) this model is 10.200". Center to center.

That's right, I remember now. I do know that alot of race guys are saying they are still not right though. Seems like every few years they either go with another manufacturer or modify compounds or both. I only run the Carlisle XS seriers and have had good luck. I realize he is not likely gonna want to spend that kind of money on his sled and another is just as good for lower HP sleds like his.

Found this online when someone else was switching motors from a different brand.

If you take your center to center length multiply that number by 2 and add the circumference of the primary clutch. This should be your belt length.
21.14 (10.57 x 2) + (8.5 x 3.14) 26.69
21.14 + 26.69 = 47.83" for belt length

Also found what tcat446 replied too.

The controls came in the mail today. there were some junky sportster bars I had in the shed. they were 1".... for some reason I thought they were 7/8". they sell super cheap Taiwan controls for harleys on Ebay. The twist throttle was my intention in the first place. the hood has been cut to fit a around the exhaust. I still need to make some covers and fill some holes in the belly. and I can't believe I haven't huck bolted the trailing arms yet... and last but not least the wiring. I've got all the schematics downloaded and it looks really simple. I'm sure I'm missing a lot but that much aught to get it in the snow..

I forgot to mention. I ordered a belt online per advice on here. it was perfect fit.. I ordered a second one sized a bit smaller to have my bases covered... too small. Thanks 660 and 446 for your help!
