Storing your UTV in an environment where it is exposed to dirt, dust, debris and moisture will shorten the life of the belt. Most UTV belts are made of a natural rubber compound that will absorb small particles from its environment into the pores of the compound. This negatively impacts the coefficient of friction resulting in an increase in heat and earlier failure of the belt. Storing your belt where it is exposed to UV rays or where the belt is in contact with other objects can create cracks or weak spots in the belt resulting in early failure as well.
Check out KWT Filter's article on Maintenance Tips here, which stresses the importance of inspecting and taking care of your UTV's drive belt.
The Savage UTV belt case comes with all stainless steel hardware to be mounted to flat surfaces on your car. It also comes with all stainless steel hardware to be mounted to any roll cage size 1"-2". If you need to mount the case to a roll cage outside
of that range you need to simply purchase hose clamps for the appropriate size
of your needs and they will work with the mounting brackets included with
your Savage UTV case.
Torque spec for the 1/4-20 mounting bolts is 70 inch/pounds.
We have Assault Industries machined aluminum mounting kits available for
purchase.The mounts raise your case 1" above the roll cage tubing allowing
you to mount your case above an existing shock reservoir mounts or fire

Savage UTV belt cases are designed to fit both naturally aspirated
and turbo UTV belts from most popular UTV manufacturers. The inner
dimensions of the case are 22" long by 3.2" wide and 3" tall. A detailed spec sheet is available upon request, feel free to email us for a copy.
Wildcat XX, Textron, Speed, and Kawasaki KRX belts fit in the Revolve case but not in original Savage case.
All Polaris and Can Am model belts fit in the original Savage UTV Case. Click here for a list to figure out which belt is best for your UTV.
Savage UTV reached out to engineers from both Polaris and Can-Am to make sure the belts were being positioned in a manner which would best preserve their integrity. Their explanation: The idle bearing on the primary clutch of most UTV's has an outer diameter of 1.75". This means that when the vehicle is at rest or idle, the belt is being bent around this bearing. Once throttle is increased, the inner diameter of the belt increases until the throttle is lowered and then the belt returns to its original position. The Savage UTV case was designed to make sure that your belt was stored in a clean, cool, closed, case with an inner dimension of the bend in the belt never going below the idle bearing dimension of 1.75". If you are still concerned about the bend in your belt while in storage, randomly adjust the position of the belt in the case and remove it from the case when being stored over extended periods of time. We have a more detailed explanation on our Savage UTV Youtube page.
