Is it possible to do a belt change trail side?

Question

So I’m new to the sport and keep hearing about “make sure I keep an extra belt”. Is it possible to do a belt change trail side?

    Some might argue the point but I don`t believe so. The space between the outer flange and the case, the space the belt must pass, is narrower than the thickness of the belt, even if it didn`t have to twist nearly 90 degrees to do that (and they don`t twist without a great deal of force)
    I asked of any who claim it can be done or claim they have done so, to provide a video of the feat, and no one ever has.
    If you were to bring a means to remove and replace the secondary clutch then yes, you could change a belt trailside.
    or if you made and carried a special belt that has had the inner corrugations ground shallower by 50 thou or so for a distance of six inches or so then you`d have a chance of getting that belt on.

    not easy to change on the trail. Also as a dealer I’ve only sold maybe 3 belts in 3 years

    You don’t need an extra belt for Cf Moto. They don’t burn/break belts like other brands… I don’t think I’ve ever seen anyone post about breaking a belt on a trail with a Cf Moto…

    You will be fine. Thay 500 does not have the belt shredding power. Like the 1000 Especially on stock tires

    I believe the 500 is like the 800 and has a wet clutch so it is a lot easier on belts than the 1000 and most other brands

    Never had a belt problem on any ATVs I’ve owned, don’t worry about it

    My question is what size trailer is that. It’s perfect for my needs?

    Looks like a home depot or tractor supply trailer

    Cf ya don’t as long as you use low gear when ya should.
    Polaris or CanAm, belts should be sold in 6packs.

    We do a trip where we travel across Newfoundland Canada. It takes us ten days on atv. If I blow belt someone may be able to put it on for me but I would guess it could be hard to impossible to buy so I carry one for that trip.

    Use the correct range, low for everything but high speed, and you’ll won’t need a belt low including loading onto the trailer

    Had a hell of a ride today in my zforce 500 trail, had a log go through my floor into driver footwell. Later snapped a tie rod end, luckily because it happened before I had a spare. Got a flat tire, Than snapped another tie rod going across a river, again luckily I brought 2 tie rod ends! Rough day.
