Drive Belt

I'm riding a 2000 Rodie with just under 90,000 miles on the clock.

Runs great. Doesn't use oil. All in all it's been a great bike.

I'm thinking of changing the belt just as a precaution against failure.

Does any one have any recommendations as to the belt?

Wich one is the best as to durability and such ?

Thanks for the rapid reply.
I wonder if the extra 100.00 that they want for an OEM belt is worth it?

I think it must have gold threads in it or something.

Corsair,
I know you're right .
I'm just trying to be frugal.

Some one was supposed to jump up and say I know where there is a great belt for 19.95.

Unfortunatley there isn't a cheap belt for this bike or any bike for that matter. I doubt they cost as much as they are sold for but it is a buyers market for sure when it comes to motorcycle parts.
