I tried a gates extreem. I didn't really like it as well as the stock. Went back to stock. They last just as long or longer.

The only belts I have gone through is when the one way bearing seizes to the shaft and grinds away the inside of the belt.

I have the epi extreme. So far so good. The one way bearing was going bad so just put on a 2 way. That should help the belt last even longer now.

Two Way Bearing .... https://www.ebay.com/itm/3514609-PRIMARY-DRIVE-CLUTCH-NEEDLE-BEARING-FOR-Polaris-SCRAMBLER-850-2015-2019/283389791182

I too am shopping for a new belt. Always heard use stock belts but man are they expensive. Had a buddy request the Gates carbon fiber. Not sure what I’m buying yet.

OEM works every time!!!!! If you can get a gates to work then that'll work too.

i agree, i never had a problem with a OEM belt but tried the Gates carbon c12 belt because its much cheaper and suppose to not stretch !
i only have first belt break in ride on it so cant really tell .
