uhm.....NO....heres the specs....i recommend shimming it to a -031

Cat belt spec's:
0627-010 47 3/4" +/- 3/16" / 1 3/8"

0627-020 47 3/4" +/- 3/16" / 1 13/32"

0627-031 47 3/4" +/- 3/16" / 1 13/32


Cat introduced the 031 belt when they came out with the 2004 models. Compared to the 020 belt, the 031 is skinnier and also a much harder compound.

then theres this..

0627-020 belt noticed my old worn belt was actually wider then the new, checked both new belts they measured 1.34" and 1.32" wide these are supposed to be 1.406" wide per Cat spec.

and this is why i use an 031...

I bought a 0627-020 at Total powersports in Gaylord nd it was at the low of the spec. I rode it for about 50 miles and the machine was running poorly. I threw some calipers on the belt and was astonished to find it was .020 narrower than the 2000 mile belt I took off.
