I haven't looked at mine in a while. Now would be a good time since I'm looking for this other problem. My Prowler has just over 1600 miles on it.

Yes that is 1600+ miles on the factory belt, thats way to many! I'm getting ready to do a complete tear down & rebuild the cage more into a sport cage. 2 weeks after I got my Powler in 06 I completely tore it down & built the cage I have on it now, just time for somthing new. Right after I built it I had a bunch new ideas, that always happens to me. Yes I do have 2 kids, son is 16 daughter is 14.

We had our Belt changed after 1900 miles, Our mechanic told my husband that we didn't need to change it. According to the owner's manual they say you should change it after 1000 miles. The old belt looks brand new. Our mechanic told Bob never to bring it back for a belt change. The oil leak problem is common in the prowlers. Almost every Prowler we have sold has come in for a oil seal fix. I will talk to our mechanic at work on Monday and see if he would be willing to answer some of your guy's question.

After reading again the posts, I'm wondering if I'm talking about the same type of oil leak. I will talk to our mechanic on Monday and try to answer your questions.
