Default Fresh Is Better

I recently bought a new drive belt from Paulie at Honda East in Toledo, OH. I haven't changed it yet and I may not for a while. I only have 60K on my CCT. But it's nice to have a new one hanging in my office. What I want to post is that the belt looks like it was just made yesterday. It has a similar look like a tire that just came out of the mold. I don't know if these belts have a date code but folks, Paulie is your hook up for Victory parts. Great prices, great communication and great delivery.

Thank you Paulie

I wouldn't hang it up...lay it flat somewhere. Hanging it can cause it to take a "set."

This from Gates:

Belts may be stored up to six years if properly stored at temperatures less than 85F and relative humidity less than 70%. For every 15F increase in storage temperature above 85F, the time the belt can be stored without reduced performance decreases by one-half.Belts should never be stored at temperatures above 115F. At relative humidity levels above 70%, fungus or mildew may form on stored belts. This has minimal affect on belt performance, but should be avoided if possible. When equipment is stored for prolonged periods of time (over six months), the belt tension should be relaxed so that the belt does not take a set, and the storage environment should meet the 85F and 70% or less relative humidity condition. If this is not possible, belts should be removed and stored separately in a proper environment. See pic for more info.

I've hung mine in a closet in the house on one of those thick plastic hangers so its supported by the "neck and shoulders" of the hanger.

what RICZ do not sore on hook lay it flat under your bed. Never bend it.
Keep in mind if you keep the old belt as a spare when you have to put it back on make sure you can read the name victory. The drive belt wears like a belted tire and will not last if you reverse the direction

You guys rock! Mine is hanging over the side of a bookcase which means it's about half as wide as it's long. I'll move it so it's nearly a circle and lay it flat. No problem with the temperature and humidity conditions in the house.

All the best,

Mark

Sounds like way too much fuss. I'll just order when I need it.
