Drive Belt??

Hi all. Just broke 1700 miles today. When I got home I notice Chunks on the rear Rim. Looked at the Belt, I can see Chunks coming off the Cogs. Anyone else notice this?? I'll see if I can post a pic later.

I hate autocorrect. I always end up posting some thong I didn't Nintendo.

Anything wedged in between the cogs?

You on a dusty or dirty road often it shouldn't be like that clean your bike very much is the belt the right tension?
Looked at mine 6300 miles on her and it looks perfect that's to soon to be looking like that.
May have got a small pebble or something lodged up in the cogs or did have.

I took it to my "Chapel" and showed it to the Service Manager. He said it looks ok. Maybe it was a pebble??

Thanks for the reminder. I am going to Ocean County H_D today. They have something in stock that I have wanted for awhile. A cup set I saw back at Christmas time at my dealer.

Ocean County HD checked the belt. Told me it would run 4 Hours labor if its not caused by a Warrantable failure. Like the Front Sprocket Bolt. And If I wanted the Belt replaced, $177 for the Belt. Around $630 for them to do it. So basically I am going to keep an eye on it. And see what happens. But it is Highly Likely I will be needing a Belt earlier than usual. That would suck if I have to keep replacing every 5k Miles.

Take it into the dealer asap. It could be a defective belt although that is very rare or it could be a problem with the belt sprockets which is a more serious issue.




Always remember that for every mile of highway there are two miles of ditches.
