I haven't completed the mileage to warrant changing my cambelts (I know - I should get out more) but they are over three years old... Should I change them anyway? :-/
the new belt are renforced with kevlar fiber, no more failure at 12k, they can be replace a 24K but are change for security.
is it a judgement or a fact? think what you what I don't care.Uh-huh. Are you willing to warranty all engines that fail due to broken belts? (a $60 repacement item) And I assume you have first hand knowledge of this? No? You heard it from someone? And they have first hand knowledge and experience? No?
My friend who had belt fail with 11k miles was under 2 years of service on belts, was approx 20~23,000 miles on bike, and rather meticulous about maintenance. (more so than I)the drive belts that I have seen braking were for two main reason :
- too old (some people seems to don't know that they MUST be change after 2years)
- roller tensionner, too tight or seize up (or both)
I agree for warranty,
