Default CVT belt replacement tips please

I know some of you guys have found ways to replace the belt without taking the drive pulley off, so how did you do it? I found a thread stating yopu can just start the belt off the driven pulley while turning the drive pulley to get it off and on, but I dont want to bend or distort the pulley, there doesnt seem to be much slack in it and its a thick motha. Right now I have about 1" of slack in it, and the V runs great, the belt looks very good, but want to replace it anyway. Bought the V used, and dont know how many hours are on it. Belt light is on. And yes, I am using OEM

Yea I read that during a search. LOL It just seems like that belt will not strectch enough to make it over the pulleys. I dont want to buy the tool if I dont need to, I have enough money in tools, trust me.

Thanks burnout, good vid. One question, the belt on his prairie is going the opposite way then my V. I dont know if a belt has been done to my V, but the Kawasaki name is upside down, and the arrow is pointing to the rear of the quad. Is this correct?

That is not correct. Installed correctly, the arrow should point toward the front of the atv.

well, I tried and tried to get that darn belt off like the vidoe, and it aint happening. My belt is just to tight, just not enough slack to start it off the driven pulley. I even used a screwdriver to try to get it to start, but no sucess. I need the puller, anyone have one in the lower Bucks/Phila PA area I can borrow

A new one is only about $25. Be very carful using screwdrivers and things to pry the belt off, its easy to scratch and mark the clutch faces. even if you do get the belt off the new one is going to be that much tighter to get on.
