Title: Drive Belt
Post by: olfrt on November 16, 2020, 02:43:40 pm
I've just replaced my drive Belt, at a little over 87,000 k's. Old belt was squealing and very noisy.
Took about an hour in total. I'm still in love with my Bolt. ;D

I've heard a lot of questions about the belt, but you're the first I've heard who actually had to replace it! 
Respectable Mileage on it!  How much did a new one cost you?

Hi Norm.
My (genuine Yamaha) belt from my local dealer cost me $370 Australian Dollars. List price is a bit higher, he looks after me. ;)

Very nice, impressive mileage.  Glad to see you still love the bike, still loving mine too, bought in '16.
