I bought a 2002 750 Dark which will be 2 years old in Juuly. The bike has 1200 miles on it. When should I replace the belts?

Thanks,

Tom.

The rule of thumb is every 2 years, but many people stretch it without problems.

Hey, does that 12000 mile remark and the two year 'rule of thumb' mean that the average distance per year ducati expects from us is 6k?

Maybe this bike of mine was designed to be ridden in a place with a longer riding season...

I think changing the belts every 12k miles is the recommended service interval OR every 2 years, if you haven't ridden 12k in that time period. I had my belts changed at the 12k service, which was almost exactly 1 year from the date of purchase.
