    Differences in Viking\Wolverine exhaust and CVT belt life

    Has anyone thought about the stock Viking exhaust, especially the catalytic converter being right near the stock CVT intake contributing to belt wear from overheating and not just attributing it strictly to the Viking's slightly heavier weight?

    If you look at the Wolverine's exhaust, it's routed far away from the stock CVT intake and with the muffler being mounted laterally and towards the back, it probably has no chance of affecting the temperature of air the CVT ingests.

    Exhaust is next to the cvt exhaust on the Viking. Cvt intake is behind the driver seat
