Is the belt you put on OEM, or after market? Have you checked your engine mounts to make sure none are broken?

Are you riding it in the water at all? Could the belt be getting wet? How are you riding it? More details please.

Definately need more info. Is the belt OEM? Did you put everything back together properly when doing the clutch kit? Did you put some break-in miles on the new belt before giving it hell?
