I'm just wondering if It's possible to reset the belt switch before it actually comes on. Went to dealer to have belt checked and the switch reset. He said it is'nt possible until the light actually comes on. I'm heading to mexico next month and don't want the thing going off and me stuck at reduced power. I figured if the belt was ok or even changed that you could reset it? it has a 1000 miles now and about 40hrs or so on it. Am I stuck with it as it is until it goes off? thanks

Early 2003 650 Belt light reset procedure.

1. Turn the ignition switch OFF.

2. Disconnect the belt failure switch at the 2-pin connector above the CVT cover. (Note: Just follow the wires coming from the rectangular black box on the CVT Cover to locate this connector.)

3. Disconnect both sets of 5 pin connectors located above the CVT cover. Note: These connectors are located just beneath the shift handle on the right side of the 650; one is black and one is grey.

4. Connect these 5 pin connectors to their opposite pairs (grey to black and black to grey).

5. Turn the ignition switch ON.

6. Observe the belt-warning lamp. It should be flashing at a 0.4 second interval for a few seconds then start to flash slower. Let the lamp flash for at least seven seconds.

7. After seven seconds or more, turn the ignition switch off.

8. Reconnect 5 pin connectors to their proper location (black to black, grey to grey).

9. Connect the belt failure switch 2-pin connector (wires from CVT cover).

10. Turn the ignition switch on to confirm that the belt warning light is not flashing. Retry this procedure if needed. As far as I have heard it always works if the belt switch isn't tripped and there are no electrical problems.

I had the same issue and found you can't do it ahead of time. I also understand that there is no limp mode for when the light comes on for 2004 and newer units. I took the directions with me last week to WV but our trip stopped at 99 hours.

My wife's belt light came on but she never had reduced power. That was at 100 hours.
