    Ok, sorry to bring up an old thread but help me out if you can. I'm looking for a replacement drivebelt as a spare for my 08 firebolt. The dealer says that the stock belts (Ga.500) are no longer available. I don't know what it's like in the States but every aftermarket belt supplier I've talked to here in Canada says they can get the belt but can't sell it because Harley owns the rights to them. I've looked at Gates, Bdl,Panther and it looks like I can't any of them. Any suggestions?

    IMO a OEM Buell belt would be the best choice for something that's not even supposed to have a replacement interval, I replace them if a bike is over 50K. Why not? It's cheaper than a tow home, and certainly more convenient. Lunatic could probably chime in with exact numbers of whats left in the system to alleviate the fear of an obsolete part.

    I agree with pdksh, lots of HD parts monkeys don't like to work for a living. Much like EBR themselves, go ahead and order it and you'll probably get a call in a week or 2, not 8 weeks.

    Thanks Fabio.

    You're a fount of information, hopefully all your kids (and even ol' one testicle Billy-Joe-Bob) can afford gas in the IROC Camaro to get to continuation school from the sales of your new line of EarBleed open exhaust conversions.

    Say "Hi" to your sister-wife and my kids... brother.
