    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?

    Have you tried eBay? I see them on there all the time when you look up buell parts. Last one I saw was $175 US dollars. I'm sure a more knowledgeable buell expert will chime in with something better but eBay is at least a start.

    I have heard of people on here using the carbon fiber belt with good results.

    I'm currently using a carbon fiber belt I got from Belt Drives LTD. It's holding up better then the last factory replacement I got and was only about 2/3rds the price. Just order online, they don't know or care what kind of bike your on.

    I have an 2005 XB12Scg and the OEM is G0500.1AAH.

    But I did find some after markets ones during my search. They were on a parts reference post I stumbled across on here.

    Here is what I found:

    Drive Belt:
    Belt Drives Falcon SPC Rear Drive Belt - 1 1/8in. - 14mm - 128T Part#: BDL-SPC-128-118

    Dayco Panther Rear Drive Belt - 1 1/8" - 14mm 128T Part #: 43-9085

    Gates-Polychain Rear Drive Belt - 1 1/8" - 14mm 128T Part #: 43-9014

    I found some on Amazon and other HD (states) carry them as well...and they were cheaper than the OEM.

    Hope this helps.

    Cheers!

    I thought they have a life time warranty.

    Somebody brought that up at one time ... I know the 03 belts did not have that for sure ... And I think there was a misunderstanding between a "lifetime warranty" and a "lifetime belt" .... hmmm
