Yes, I have a low km one as spare on my wall, keeping a close eye on the original.

Any pics on the abrasive material, and the metal washer, the shop found inside the front pulley cover?

I had a case. One ******* didn't tighten my rear wing mount. When I got off the bike near the house, I noticed that the passenger's sit hangs with the rear wing. I took off the saddle and saw that the rear wing mount barely held. On one side, both screws were not tightened. One nut tore off and it was not in place. The screw would also be lost, it was skewed in the fasteners and it was half sticking out.

I found the wing mounting nut later when I checked and cleaned the drive pulley. The nut was under the second slider under the belt. Nothing was damaged, I was lucky. I think the nut fell on the belt and it threw this nut into the drive pulley case. If it was stayed on top of the belt and got stuck at the upper slider, I think this had made affect the integrity and condition of the belt. It could be thrown inside the belt, and then she would damage the driven pulley. But those time I got lucky.

The thought is this: either something rubbed the belt from the side of the driven pulley, licence plate mount for example. Or from the side of the driving pulley, but this was supposed to get stuck on top of side of belt near the sliders. Take a photo inside the drive pulley housing.

Sorry no pics of abrasion material...gray harder than a sponge type but see how it could have been sucked up in there.
