I have changed mine on the trail...I don't remember exactly what I used, but I carry one of those elcheapo walmart toolcases. the ones that have a few standard and metric sockets, an adjustable wrench, some allen wrenches, and a hammer. me and a buddy did it in about 30 minutes with either of us never doing it before....

That is a good video showing how to change a belt 431114 But one thing to note is that when your out on the trail and you break a belt, It would be a good Idea to have a long pair of needle nose pliers and a good sharp utility knife. I have broken three belts and sometimes they shred into a lot of strings that get wrapped up in the clutches and hard to get out. The pliers are good to grab them with and the knife to cut them.

Also, dont forget to clean out your exhaust duct because a lot of times it will be clogged with belt debris.... 980928

What you need:

Ratchet with a 5/8 socket, a 5/8 wrench. these are to remove the seat bar.
3/8 small socket and an extension to remove the cover bolts.
a flathead screwdriver to loosen the exhaust tube.
A new belt
and a 1/2 extension about 8 inches long, this is the trick to getting the new belt on by putting it in the notch on the secondary clutch and spreading the sheave.
Be sure to clean out any broken pieces of belt that might be caught in the clutch parts. 431114

All my stuff was metric. I carry a 8, 10, 13, 15mm wrench (ratchet style), 1/4" and 3/8" drive ratchets (I have short and long 3/8"), one 3" 1/4" and one 12" 1/4" drive extensions, two 3" 3/8" extentions, 8, 10, 13, 15mm shallow and deep sockets (8, 10, 13mm in 1/4" drive and 10, 13, 15 mm in 3/8" drive). One #2 Phillips/Cross screw driver and a #2 and #3 flat screw driver. I then have a 1/4" to 3/4" set of SAE all in 3/8" drive.

I know, a bunch of tools! That is why I installed a trailer tounge tool box in my bed. Soon I will cut all the pieces and have one built that is the entire size of the bed. That way it does not stick up so freaking high. I did find a hard plastic tonge box that may actually be wider but shorter. May go that route, just not sure yet. My box only cost me $200, when a good Kolpin will cost you $400 or more.

I inserted the two seat bar bolts up from the bottom and welded them in place. That way you don't have to have another wrench, and best of all, you don't have to worry about dropping one of the nuts. Just ask me how I know that last one............ lol!
