I hope i'm not beating a dead mule but can you replace a belt without pulling off the pullies. I've heard you can cut the old belt off put it in gear and roll the belt on the pullies. This is on a buddy of mine bike neither one of us have a primary puller.

You can do it this way, but recomended not to. It may possibly stretch out the belt. Go in half 15 bucks each and get the primary puller and make it alot easier, and safer.

That's what happened to this one it's got chunks missing out of it. Just wondering if it could be done that way thanks for the info.

Yeah, it will stretch just enough to make her squeal with a good load. I would get the puller unless it was an emergency. Too bad they arent as easy as the ole grizz's!

yep easier to just buy. plus with the EPI one, there's NO chance of it breaking off in your primary.
