I have lots o' Buell buddies that stick to pavement and only get 8-10k out of a belt. It's usually worse for the 1203 cc bikes. I ride more than 95% paved. Mine lasted 15600 miles so I am not sure if I can blame the gravel. Maybe if I hadn't ridded those 700 miles of gravel, my belt would have lasted 16300 miles.

I have 14,000+ on my belt and it is a 1550cc, pulls in at 105 HP. I do know about belt drive bikes. Just sayin...
The Buell Boys are HARD on their bikes! LOL!!! I know, I have ridden around with them! Waaaay faster than me!
IMHO if the ones with much more brain power than me (easy to come by ) felt that belts were the way to go for DS bikes I think they would be out there for us MMS suckers to choose from...
But I am not going to argue anymore about it, I'm just going to go ride....

By my calculations, you have exactly 47.0376 miles to go until belt failure. I would change it now if I were you.

Somebody else named it last time and only four of us showed. I'm afraid if I name it, we will have negative participation. Of course, I might also opt for Chapala's Mexican Restauranto on Main Street in Gardner.

I don't know how many miles the Buell had on it that tossed it's belt at my head as I was passing him in 5 at MAM. I do know that it's the first and only time a drive belt/chain/shaft has ever come that close to my face.

My favorite place to pass on that track. I love the outside of 5, so many people scrub off too much speed, dive in early and get late on the gas. I late brake, turn late, hardly ever touch the apex and gas it early. The outside's pretty clean track as the wind blows towards the outside of the turn and keeps it nice and tidy. The only problem is the lack of rubber out there, unless the cars ran the weekend before, than there's lots. As long as you have a wheel on the guy before exiting 6, and they can see you're out there, (if you see they're looking up track, get more than a wheel, of course) then you should be fine. Plus, an outside pass spooks track-noobs there less than an inside.
