I use Cat belts. There was a big discussion last year about this. Some people said they had measured OEM vs. aftermarket belts & found the aftermarkets' weren't the exact dimensions.

Do you really believe that the OEMs are making their own belts just because it has "Polaris" or "Bombardier" on it? Its your money that you are wasting.

I go with aftermarket Dayco belts.

Are they making them, no most likley not. but they can require higher quality standards than an after market name. Ever try and put an after market body panel on an auto? they dont fit right. OEM's do. I wont apply this analogy to oils though.
