Did you end up finding out why your belt was getting so hotI hit full bars on Belt temp and it was flashing at the end of a 300 km in 2 days of riding.... any ideas, machine only has about 600 km on it, and first service was done. I plan on removing the clutch cover today to further inspect.
Thanks for any help.
That's not how to measure a Kawasaki or Yamaha belt. I sent them the correct way the day that video was released but they didn't bother to change it.Here is a video where he has 1000 miles on the belt and it looked great. I would have kept running the original one personally. Even the amount of wear was minimal vs a brand new belt.

There’s a guy on YouTube that has ran his 3000 miles on the original belt. Good info here.I think most guys would be amazed that their factory belt is below spec and they don’t know it. I know I was at 850 miles. Another sign is if you no longer can get up to near the 68 mph limit. The belt looked good, but was at the 1.45 spec. And I didn’t know the spec, until someone posted the service manual online. I’m trying the Gboost belt now. Hope I get a little more life out of it.
Better pull your cover off and look at your sheaves. You most likely will have groves warn into the primary up towards the top, and a matching set on the secondary towards the bottom. That much heat and constant rpm's the sheaves on the KRX don't like.I hit 5 bars yesterday. Pretty straight smooth road so I was floored for about 7 minutes. Once I saw it I backed off. Belt is new. Was seeing 3 most of the day.
