I'm about to change mine and based on what i've heard on here, the oem belt is the way to go. Sorry, I have no experience with aftermarket but I've always used the oem and have had good luck.

I have heard OEM is the way to go aswell airdam/// talks very highly of them.

I think I am going to try a aftermarket belt next.
To see if they hold up any better.
Do you have any recromendations?

Only use cat belts,the aftermarket belts are never exactly the same a lil narrower a lil wider a lil shorter or a lil longer. This is what i have found out over the years on snowmobiles. Your performance will suffer. Higher or lower engagement of your clutch, and they never wear as long as a stock belt.Arctic cat offers harder or softer compound in snowmobile belts for longer wearing or racing.I don't know if they offer the same in prowler belts.I hope this helps in your decision.


Ps. Buy a Cat belt......

The oem one is better. Been there and was not happy. I would go online and save some money to buy the oem belt.
