Pulled the clutch and belt last night. I had a clutch puller tool that worked on my 2008 Teryx and it worked for the Brute as well. The belt looks new, but there are a few wear spots here and there where it looks like it was rubbed or burnt. So I ordered a new belt, $97.45 delivered on eBay. I spoke to my buddy who was a Kaw mechanic and he said belts to "chip" when they are worn. So with only 275 miles on it the guess is that without some regular use it has expanded.
Taking the belt off the Brute was easy compared to taking it off the Teryx. I removed the side panel, including the black insert that has the webbing on it. You have to open the airbox lid to access one screw. You also have to remove the collar right below the pod. Lastly there are several of these screws that have nuts on the back of them or clips. Keeping an eye on the clips is important as they like to "disappear", or fall on the ground or slide down where you can't see them. You also have to take the large plastic nut off the ignition, and I took the rubber insert off around the plastic where the shifter comes through. I did not pull the panel off the shiftier knob, I just pulled it out and rotated it so I could get to the cover. There are 8 10mm bolts to remove, two have "wire holders" on them. You have to unplug two wire connections.
To remove the clutch there are several videos on YouTube.
I'll post once I get the new belt on.
