    Time for a new belt: '08 XB12Ss

    It looks like it might be time for a new belt. Mine looks like it's dry rotting or something, although it hasn't snapped and has over 33,000 miles on it.

    I'm seeing that it's a 135T 1.125" belt. A few part numbers keep popping up:
    • BDL SPC-135-118 (Goodyear part number)
    • G0500.1AKF (HD part number)


    Can anyone verify that these are the most current part numbers for a 2008 XB12Ss?

    I figured I may as well get a spare for my '09 1125CR as well. Any information on that would be helpful too.

    Thanks!

    the H-D part # and sizing is correct that you listed. part # coincides with 65/27 toothed pulley combo....long swingarm.
    there is no "updated" or "superseded" part #. fits: X, XT,SS, STT, XP models. falcon-goodyear also make excellent belt. price shop. retail as i recall was around $149

    G0500.1ATB----- Drive Belt, 2009-2010 1125CR Only----does NOT fit R model.

    can tell how much you appreciate me digging up the correct part numbers. you're welcome

    Hey John, I thought I read that the belt for the STT was a different size because of the shorter length ?

    Very much appreciate this info. Great to have the enthusiast support on the forums... wouldn't be very easy to maintain these machines without it.

    My belt looks like that in between a bunch of teeth on the inside. Time for a swap? 2009 XB12Ss, 24k miles, original belt.

    i'd stock up on one greg and squeeze more miles out of your original. from the looks of it is is NOT going to suddenly tear and leave you stranded but probably at the 30K mark i'd throw on one. with the "bridged" swingarm its a very easy evening project. can give you quick cheater steps when the time comes.

    Chain conversion will cost you less than new belt and will last longer.
