Usually the OEM belt is a safe bet that its going to work well but we all know manufacturers make belts for all brands of bikes. Like Russ said, Gates makes polaris belts ,so I wouldn't be scared to try one of them. Gates or Dayco will be my next choice.
Also , you can check with "cyclepartswarehouse" dot com for OEM parts. They are much cheaper than the dealership and sell the same stuff. Get your Pure Polaris OEM belt there if you want OEM.
I recently put a Gates on my 550. The gates g-force belt and the original OEM are not the same. Maybe Gates makes another model that is identical to OEM but the G-force model is not OEM.
That being said, the G-Force belt seems to work just fine. No creeping, shifts fine.
