Note that there are many other dealers but I use this one to look parts up on because they have a good parts fiche.

The bad news is the belts are expensive and to my knowledge; there aren't any other belts that fit it other than the one Victory sells. I looked into it a couple of years ago.

The good news is the belt is easy to remove and install compared to Harley's; which is what I was used to before getting the Vics.

More good news is many times the belt will last a very long time when the rock goes through the middle of the belt and does NOT damage any of either edge. So you could probably get a full life out of this belt. It's not for sure but it could last.

I would get a new belt soon though because one never knows and it will probably bug you until you replace it. The damaged belt can be used as a back up belt from then on; just don't put a bend in it. Once bent; the belts fail very quickly.

Hard to say but a hole in the middle of the belt is good. A rock that tears the edge of the belt will quickly break the belt.
You should replace the belt but then you could go another 10 thousand miles before it breaks.
Have dealer order one for you and tell him to order it as rider down you should get it quicker for the same price.

I was wrong about price. It`s not 300.
ItS 380 here in Finland. And that is "discount price".

Somebody has a belt. Somebody either changed pulleys to play with ratios or somebody had belt squeal issues and swapped out belts or some other reason.
You can spend the money now or gamble that something will turn up on EBay or whatever before yours craps out.
That's some crazy damage right there. I hate it when that happens.

Yikes man, that sucks! Thats nearly $500 USD...$496.90 to be exact. THat is ridiculous!!

I dont know what shipping and any kind of import taxes cost, but it cant be $200+... We can buy those belts here in the USA for around $290. If shipping is cheap enough and you dont have to pay import duties, maybe someone here on this site that you are friends with can buy it and ship it, and you pay them via PayPal.

Are your belt guards in place or have they been removed?

Thats why you ask one of us members to buy and ship it to you! Do the research and find out how much the thing weighs and how much it would cost to ship that to you. Send money via PayPal as a "gift" so no fees are taken, then have the person here order and mail you the part. Save yourself a few bucks.
