Sean Addie had a great post about chain care. I ride a Heritage that has a belt. Are there any rule for care about a belt. The service manual just says to inspect for cracks or excessive wear. And how long do these things typically last?

Ciao,

Heya BadaBing,
My '98 Savage runs on a belt too. They are pretty much indestructable- barring major isues of course. Here is an excerpt from a Savage owners group I am part of, from a biker in Australia.
< MY BELT HAS HAD 2 HOLE,S IN IT FOR ABOUT 2 YEARS AND IVE DONE ABOUT 10000 K AND SOME BIG TRIPS. THE HOLES WHERE PUT THERE BY A STICK AND THE SECOUND BY A STONE WHICH I DIDN,T RELIZE WAS STUCK ON THE BACK PULLY. WHICH YOU SHOULD CHECK EVERY TIME YOU FILL THE TANK WHEN ON A LONG TRIP . THE HOLES ARE IN THE MIDDLE OF THE BELT WHICH IS NOT SO BAD . IF THEY WERE ON THE OUTSIDE I WOULD REPLACE IT STRAIGHT AWAY. THERE A LOT TOUGHER THAN PEOPLE THINK >
I've read in varying mags about the belt drive and its reputation for being pretty much maintainance free. So far, from what I've seen, thats true.
Hows the Heritage handle? They're a nice looking bike.
^o^
