Default 750 Brute Force New Belt Slips

I own an 05 - 750 Brute Force that is used only for hunting, not mud riding. The problem I have is even after installing a new drive belt, it slips & squeaks in gear (forward or reverse) while idling. But once I excelerate the slippage immediately stops. Can anyone tell me what is wrong or what I need to replace within the converter system?

if it has a slight squeal at idle while in gear it means the belt deflection is with in range. if you dont think it is remove belt cover and check the deflection. I think its between 22-27mm.

Default Deflection

I don't believe that is the problem. A new belt should not have excessive slack. The curent belt was put on by a cert. mechanic. I suspect it may be something internally in the converter ie. spring etc.

drtj is correct. Your belt is on the tight side. A little squeal is normal. If you don't like it, take it back to the dealer and get them to shim it a little looser. It's not the sides of the belt that's making noise, it's the center shaft of the clutch rubbing on the bottom cogs of the belt.

And you should always shift to neutral when stopped for more than a few seconds.

Skyblaster your belt is not loose, it's a little tight. When new with perfect deflection they should squeel a little in gear. Set up like this is key to the proper performance for a stock brute. When the belt squeels just pop it into neutral. Trust us it's not loose, the squeeling will lessen as the belt breaks in. YOU RAN A KAWASAKI BELT I HOPE, DO NOT USE ANYTHING ELSE THEY DON'T LAST. If your belt is loose the quad will be really doggy, poor response.
