Belt Temp Gauge Info

This article will be short and sweet and also have some install information in it.

Measuring belt temp is the best way to prolong the life of the belt and also a great way for you to know what condition your belt is in and when you see some high temps, you slow down and let your belt cool off so you don't blow it and be stranded or ruin a trip.

The Razorback gauge is certainly not the cheapest but it is the best, why? It does NOT just measure the temperature of the air in the cover, it measures the actual belt temperature using infrared sensor not a simple air temp sensor.

Insert from their site info:

A drive belt can heat up over 80 °F in a matter of seconds. It can also cool that fast as well. These rapid heating and cooling can't be detected by your clutch air temperature. Additionally, with Polaris and Can-Am redesigning clutch intake and exhaust setups to help cool down belts, the amount of air that is cycled through your cover makes it very difficult to get an accurate picture of whats going on with your belt. By the time you notice air temperatures climbing, the damage has long been done to your belt.

That's why we invented the infrared belt sensor. It has a narrow field of view and reads the temperature of your belt 100x a second and displays it in a durable bright gauge.

Our patent pending design ensures that the sensor will hold up to the extreme heat inside your clutch covers, as well as all the mud, sand, and water you can throw at it.

When the first belt temp sensors came out I was not a fan, why? Simple reason I always said they are not really measuring anything other than the air in the belt box.

So enter in the Razorback gauge it is simple in design, installation and by use of a infrared sensor it measures the temp of a object not the air.  Ever used or seen a hand held infrared thermometer?  Pretty much the same thing.

I guess this might be negative but the original idea of measuring belt temps was good but measuring the belt box air to determine that was just a bad execution and using infrared is by far the better choice, just cost a bit more.

Using a infrared sensor pointed directly at the belt is the most accurate way to measure the belt temp.
