Hi all, been gone awhile. Hope you're all doing well. So Last year I had a belt break prematurely for the 2nd time on my 2004 400. The first oem belt shredded on me after 2000 miles. Not sure how many were on this 2nd one as I haven't checked my records but it was not many.. I came across the mention of someone on Facebook saying that new belts had to be broken in with 2 "heat cycles". I found this info regarding ATV's belt break in from Gates. I have never seen this mentioned or talked about on this forum in the years I've been a member. Did I miss this info somehow or is this crapola for our Burgmans? It's important for me to mention that I have put a new belt on this machine and had it last 8000-10000 miles before I replaced it just for preventative maintenance. After the first broken belt I also replaced ALL components including variator, clutch, rollers in hopes that one of those caused the initial issue. But for the life of me I can't figure out why I have broken 2 fairly new belts and it's starting to get old I have put 25,000 miles on this bike, but I am losing trust issues and I'm starting to get paranoid on going on long rides in fear of breaking another belt. What merit do you guys give this "break in method"? Any idea's why this has happened to me twice?
