Christmas Good To Scrammy, But...

So I have an EPI Clutch and Big Gun Exhaust on order.
Once received the Scrammy will be making its way to the dealer for full service. While they have it, I will have them install a new belt for preventative maintenance. While they are in there I will have them install the clutch and silicone my belt housing to hopefully seal it up some from water.

My question is, since I am upgrading my clutch, is there a performance belt out there I should be running with the upgraded clutch or even just better than the oem belt?

I haven't had any issues with the stock one but figure while it's in for fluids why wait for a failure before replacing.

Before every Joe Blow chimes in and says the cheap belt they bought at NAPA for their trail boss 330 has lasted them 10 years, you might want to explain your riding style and terrain.

I'm a pretty aggressive rider that likes to jump shit and doesn't take it easy on the ole girl at all so I refuse to use anything but the OEM belt. I change mine about every 1000 miles whether it needs it or not just so I'm not left trying to change it on the side of the trail. Also, if the old belt is still in good condition I'll keep it as a spare in case something does happen while I'm out riding by myself.

did you go with the dual Big Gun?

Yes dual big gun, but just went slip on as the only real benefit from full or slip on is weight loss and sound. Spoke to quite a few peeps in the industry and all have agreed there is no real benefit of going "full". May pick up 1hp over stock.

As for my riding style, the Scrammy gets no rest while I'm on it. Jumps, berms, climbs, technical, fast, mud, you name it, it has been through it as hard as it can be pushed.

Thanks Chronix, I just didn't know if a reputable company is out there building better quality than oem. I'm not looking for cheap or junk, I'm looking for the best! If that's oem then I'll stick with oem.
Great idea on the one coming out to save as a backup.

True...As far as picking up power goes, I've heard good things about the new tune RVS just released a few weeks ago.

They do have some other belts out there like the Dayco xtx, Gates g force and Hypermax that some have had success with but I just feel better using the stock belt.

I'm def going to be looking into a tune and the RVS is the first in my list to check out.

Sure l'll post something up.

Others I've asked about shared the same sentiments about sticking with oem. I don't think I'll be switching. Thanks for your inputs fellas.
