UTV and SXS Belt Temperature Gauge - 3.0 Edition
Razorback Technology Belt Temp Gauge - 3.0 Edition (Free Shipping to Lower 48 States)
3.0 Edition Gauge Features:
- LCD Screen - Easy to see, even when the sun is bearing down right overhead.
- LED Alerts - The incorporated LED has been programmed to change colors as the temperature of your belt reaches certain temperatures. If you see anything other than green, it might be time to back off a bit. LED will turn yellow then red, and if belt temperature is still rising - it will begin to strobe, and then fast strobe to alert you of the heat damage that is occuring to your belt.
- Machined from steel and aluminum.
- Waterproof from the sensor to the screen.
- New cabling allows for easy detachment of both sensor and gauge from the cabling.
- Tracks current belt temperature, average temperature, and high temperature recorded during run-time.
- Pro Sensor for precise belt temperature measurements. Narrow field of view eliminates background temperatures and only focuses on belt temp.
Track Actual Belt Temperature Our gauges are the first in the industry to feature infrared sensors that monitor actual surface belt temperature. These infrared sensors are mounted on the removable clutch cover and are aimed directly at the cvt belt. This real-time reading of a belt’s surface temperature allows riders to avoid damaging temperatures and get more miles from their belts. We’ve programmed our gauges with screen inversion or LED alerts to warn riders when their belts reach temperatures at which heat damage can occur, letting them back off before they cook their belts.
Dial-In Clutching Monitoring actual belt temperature is also a great indicator of clutch tuning and performance. With an infrared belt temperature gauge, riders are able to see exactly how adjustments or modifications impact the load that is placed on their belts. If a belt is heating up faster than normal or fails prematurely, it could be a result of increased friction to the sides of the belt resulting from misaligned clutches. A poorly tuned clutch setup with the wrong weights or a worn out spring could also contribute to belt slippage and generate unnecessary heat. A Razorback Technology infrared belt temperature gauge is an invaluable tool when adjusting clutching.
Monitor Belt Life When you ride with a Razorback Technology belt temp gauge, you’ll be able to monitor the condition of your belt as you ride. Here’s how: Watch for how quickly belt temperature fluctuates. If a belt begins to heat up significantly faster from ride to ride, it is clear that belt condition should be a concern going forward. With our 2.0 and our 3.0 Edition gauges, we introduced Average and High Temperature tracking. When the average belt temperature increases by 40-50° F, it is time to start thinking about replacing the belt. Another red flag of expiring belt life is a sudden temperature spike of real-time temperature. A 60-70° F jump usually signals that the belt is about to blow, and it is time to replace the belt before it completely goes.
Measure Your Belt Temperature, Not Air- By avoiding the high temperatures at which heat damage can occur, you’ll be able to preserve belt life and get more miles from your belts. The best way to do this is with a belt temperature gauge. Many belt temperature gauges don’t actually measure belt temperature, but the air temperature inside the clutch cover instead. This simply is not an accurate way to track actual belt temperature. While a 200° F air temperature inside the clutch cover is a good indicator of a hot belt, we found that belts can actually heat up and cool off as much as 80° F in a matter of seconds. Coupled with the fact that clutch covers are designed to rapidly circulate air, a thermocouple inside the clutch cover cannot give an accurate picture of how hot a belt really is.
