Default New Aftermarket Belts Available for X-Bikes

Found this on the other forum. What a great find. Had to share it here. It's a 154 tooth 28mm. Doesn't that fit the Vision too?

Replacement belt for Victory Motorcycles

Maybe they will make them for the steel frame bikes too at some point.

Good to see for the future, and I guess steel frame belts will be out soon too.
How's that price compare with the pricing om Victory belts?
I got my last one off [email protected] and forget how much it was.
I do know this, even including freight it was cheaper than our local Aussie Victory/Indian dealers.

Depending on shipping; it's about half the price of OEM.

Of course the other big question is how long will they last?

Only one way to find out
Someones gotta take the plunge
Preferably a high miler rider.
Says theyre rubber reinforced with carbon, I'd presume carbon fibre to be fairly strong in tensile strength.
Our Victory belts are Kevlar reinforced I think, if so, then therein lies a difference.

Very interesting. I know nothing about this company or any actual difference between the Gates/Polaris belt and this one. I'm sure others do and hopefully they will post what we need to know. But I sure love that there looks to finally be an alternative for this. The drive belt is likely the single most unique item we still need from Polaris Industries. Nearly everything else, new aftermarket or used, can be sourced elsewhere.

All the best,

Electrical components could be a worry in years to come..speed sensors and the like.
Electrics is swahili to me.
Ive switched to a decent regulator thatll go the distance.
We know belts are good for over 100K without a rock interfering.
Fuel filters I got 3 in stock
still got my holey spare belt too
Considering underdrive pulley and Buell belt when I next got some loot to blow

This belt is made by Continental which makes belts for many industries. Longevity is the key here.

If Gates makes them for Victory, I wonder if they have it available in their own inventory, but under a different item number.

Yes that belt will fit a vision. BDL has been making primary belt drives for HD's for over 20 years. They have had a good primary belt and here just about 7 years ago started making drive belts for HD bikes

VJ; did you mean he started making drive belts for Victory's 7 years ago and we are just now hearing about it?

It's not just the number of teeth and width. It's the tooth depth and angles that are just as critical.
