    Where do you live... I suspect sunny, dry, arid?
    My Buell has 28k km's at the moment.
    I live in Belgium were there weather is rather clouded and weth than sunny and hot. 😄

    Thanks for the tip but i am considering to replace it by a new one.

    Buy a new to have on hand and replace it when it does finally break, till then don't worry about it. I got 39k on mine and still counting.

    That's like saying just wait until your tire pops then replace it. How about preventative maintenance instead of ruining your trip, your day, and possibly your leg.

    That belt was bad. Could go at anytime. It's not worth the risk. Why put off what you can see will fail.
