Default How many miles on your belt?

I did the search. There was a lot of discussion when cross bikes were new about belt life. What say you now? How long are your belts lasting before breaking? How many of you are just following the book and changing at 30,000?

my 99 road glide whent 110 thousand on stock belt. Its made at the same place that Vic's is Gates with the same kevlar cord windings. On a vision form there are a half a dozen guys in the 80 thousand range.
Why does harle run a 1/2 inch narrower belt then us. They launched just as hard as we do and the produce good horse power.
Victory is just try to screw us out of our money

When my 2012 XCT was at 43,000 miles, I had to take it in for repair of the starter clutch. Since it was in the shop and waiting for parts, and because I was going out of the country for ten days, I had the shop replace the belt and the front fork oil.

I appreciate you checking in. My hope is every bike gets to at least 30,000 miles on the drive belt as the only mention of replacing it in the service interval occurs at 30,000. If it broke before 30,000 miles we'd want to know about that as well. Thankfully I haven't seen any posts like that regarding the newer bikes.

Great looking bike by the way. Blue is the fastest color!
