Went to the Vic Dealer. I have a belt with 12,000 miles on it. I have a powder coated pulley. He wants to put new belt, and wants an hour and a half of labor. Mentioned my pulley may be warped due to powder coating. Does this sound right. I thought belts lasted to 100k
my xr says change the belt and pulleys at 30,000 miles. powder coating probably does get hot enough to warp a pulley when they bake it. doesn't mean it did, just possible i would think.
