650 Prairie Drive Belts

Can anyone give me an average life span of the drive belt on a Prairie 650. I am on my third belt and it is squeeling now. I am an older rider and use it to travel around in the mountains and for some hunting. Most is in 4 High on gravel roads or skid trails etc. with occasional low range use.

I have about 1000 total miles on the bike. It is a 2002 model. I called Kawasaki customer service and was told that they can't predict the life of a belt as they don't know how each rider will use the bike. I think that someone should know if the belt is designed to last for 100, 200, 500 miles or ?

I think that 4 belts in just 2 years seems to be excessive. The dealer has inspected it each time that it has started squeeling and has said that everything is normal but the belt needs to be replaced. Is everyone going through belts this fast or do I have something else that is stretching them so quick. My dealer says no that all is ok but I'm not so sure of their inspections.
