Keep in mind that most cars are coming with CVTs these days. Many advantages to the new CVT systems in cars. And they do work. My Dad has had a Jeep thing with a CVT, has over 100k miles on it with no issues with the CVT.
The belts don't get wet UNLESS the cover is improperly sealed, or you are above the limit of the snorkel. My Scrambler 500 with stock snorkels has NEVER gotten a wet belt. I drove thing that through water and mud for nearly 10 years. Only put 1 belt on it the whole time I owned it.
Trash talk belts all you want, but Honda is the only company not selling a belt drive ATV/SXS. There auto transmissions work, but they are never going to be as widely accepted and wanted by the public at large.
Polaris, Can Am, Yamaha, Suzuki, Kawasaki, ect can not be wrong. The systems work and work well.
What bothers me, and it has been demonstrated right here in this thread, that people have no clue how a CVT system works, but yet they talk about how terrible they are.
