sorry, can't compare, I'm still with stock belt. But low miles for an "01" only 146k. LOL
Erbman,are you saying the stock/original belt on your bike has 146K miles on it & is still going?
If thats the case WOW!!!!!!
Other then not abusing your bike is there anything you did to the belt & or pulleys etc to extend the srv'c of the belt on your bike.
It's the original. And I wouldn't say I don't abuse my bike, I've put it thru it's paces, that's for sure. The front pully was replaced 99k miles ago. A week before the tranny recall, had the gear oil leak, dealer said to tighten the nut, yep, it was loose, even with the tabs bent. Any way, during tranny breakdown, dealer called and told me pulley and drive shaft damage. My theory, since it not a maintenance part to tighten pulley, sits behind a cover, only way to get loose was not tq'ed at factory. Dealer agreed, Customer service involved, told them same, they called dealer, they confirmed, had pully and drive shaft at dealer next day, no charge. Bike in shop 3 days, and tech who did my tranny, had already done about 75, so yep, well qualified tech. Too bad he passed last yr, got some good tips, as well as some carb
things he did.
So anyway , back to belt. Maybe my shift pattern helps too?
