Old belt, leave it or replace it?

Just bought a new AC belt and EPI performance clutch kit. Tore into and found the old belt with 4500 miles looking brand new. Not glazed or cracked. Measured it and it shows almost no wear comparing it to the new belt. Gonna be selling it in the next 2 or 3 months. Would you replace it, or pop it back together and call it good. New belt and clutch would be a good selling point. But hey, if it doesn't need it????

Leave it.
I have replaced belts before, just for good measure, and ran into issues like squealing and jerkiness, only to go back to the old belt.

I would put the new one on and keep the old one as an emergency spare.

I agree Firecat, just have to decide on the clutch kit, now. Think I'll just do them both. New owner won't have to worry about it.

Well, I was thinking about it, RD. We went to look at that 2010 XTZ last night and we decided to keep the old workhorse and buy something newer, nicer and more comfortable for trails and county roads. So, I'm gonna keep it. Might look at a Reeper again.

Everything is apart, had just a small amount of grease in the cover, doesn't look like it was causing a problem, but... This is the only oil seal I can find that could leak through the wet clutch into the outer cover. Is this the one I need? 0830-189 is the part#

That be the little devil! I've never had any issues with the one on the wet clutch hub, only this one! If you look at the inner cover you can see where the oil passage goes that feeds oil to the bearing in the inner cover and what the seal needs to contain. Small seepage is not unusual. The clutch kit will surprise you!

I typed in the wrong part number, its 0830-244, not 224. The local dealer has both seals, I'm just replace both. No nut, he said he always re-uses it. Now, to get that damn nut off. I'm gonna use my battery impact, do you torque that back on to 221 lbs or just crank it with the impact? It'll pop it to 450 lbs.
