Hey Zorba I have my original still in the garage after changing to 1 1/2' and up gearing. PM me you mailing address and I will get it to you. I was going to carry it with me to WWW2011 for a spare for anyone else with std gearing but you can use it in the meen time.

shame I saw this too late.

Ive got a brand new one hanging in the shed. I've learnt my lesson

Greg (GT) always has a spare as well, and he's only 10 minutes away from you as well.

If it ever happens again, just give me or greg a call next time.

You guys might consider organizing a group buy on spare belts and rear tires. Plus, in the UK, they made a list of what other spares the group has in their respective garages in case anyone has an emergency and can't get a part. They get the part off the list and order a replacement shipped direct to the other guy. Heard no complaints so far. Do you guys have to pay high import duty from the USA?

G'day Zorba,
Always got spares sitting on the shelf here. Which brand did you order? The best ones to get are Gates Polychain or even better is the Gates/S&S Polychain.
If you ordered the Panther belt order another one now, one of the ones listed above or let me know and I can do you a deal on the Gates Poly for 1 1/8"

Cheers

anything other than the S&S/Gates belt wont stand up, I found that out brand new Panther belt lasted less than 10thousand K's.

After reading everything I could on here the S&S/Gates belt is the ducks nuts.

Like Gringo said, I've got a new one and a used sitting in my garage but it sounds like you're sorted now.
Cheers
