I had my 2011 XR (19,000 miles) in for some maintenance before a trip a couple of weeks ago and my mechanic said the belt was starting to crack pretty good. He recommended replacement within the next few months.I do understand that. I'm surprised just how well the OE belt has lasted, 124000 KMs, probably 20% on dirt roads. Way better than any of my mates Harley's, even the blokes who have left the lower belt guards on
I still have a spare, so I might have graduated to a mobility scooter before I need to buy a replacement.
