I'm in need of a new drive belt for my 2006 sportsman 500. What exact it is I don't know what to call it. The sticker says it's an HO, but it is fuel injected. So when trying to order a belt I get two different options for dayco belts. Either hp 2004 or 2003. The 04 is for "efi" and the 03 is for the "ho" I get contradicting answers from everywhere. Amazon and ebay both say I need a hp2003. Where as the dayco website says I need a 04. I have yet to find a ho/efi option anywhere. The machine is both ho and efi... So I'm lost.

What belt do I need?? Thanks!!

Just to be safe go with a Polaris one. Does the current belt have anything written on it? Try oem # 3211091 or 3211077. Got the part #'s from cheap cycle parts. Hope it helps.

I haven't taken off the old one yet. According to the previous owner it's the original belt so I think its time to replace it before I get stranded somewhere. My atv is about an hour and a half away up at our cabin so next time I go up there I'll open it up and see.

Is it slipping or acting funny?

On my last ride I was in a large snowy mud hole and I thought I felt a little slip. I've got 1900 miles on it so at the least I would like to have a spare handy.

Yeah I don't blame you there. I replaced mine over the summer. I kept the old one for an emergency spare.

I'll second staying with OEM belts. Make sure that if you have EBS your new belt is made for EBS.


Rather be riding, instead I'm using Tapatalk

yeah , check your original belt for a belt number and use the same one. EBS or not is important when choosing a belt , they are different lengths.
If you went with your year bike and EBS or not , you should be good, but checking what's on your bike now is the best bet!!
