Question
Does Gates have a recommendation for "breaking in" snowmobile belts?
Answer
All snowmobile belts yield better performance and longer life if they are "broken in" under moderate riding conditions. Gates strongly suggests that the first 10-15 miles of operation be at a maximum 1/2 throttle and no more than 50 mph. During the "break in" period, frequent shifting over the speed ratio range is also required (ride so that the transmission system shifts often).
