    my pleasure greg. the BDL replacement belt excellent and quite a bit less $ than OEM. something to consider. the Ss belt specs are:
    1-1/8 - width
    14-MM- pitch
    135T- tooth count

    last i checked the BDL was $142 and the OEM $188

    $188 for the belt for 25000 miles -holy cow! How about $70 for premium quality Japanese X-ring chain for 50000-70000 miles?
