You may have seen a recent post about me snapping my belt...Well, after being stranded for several hours in the dead of night I found and purchased this kit. It is a Harley Davidson Emergency Final drive belt kit. Essentially it contains a belt with the same specs as ours (130 tooth, 14mm pitch, 1 1/8" wide), 15 allenhead screws (you really need only 12, 3 are spares), and several allan head wrenches.


Basically, this belt can be installed on the spot without having to take off the front pulley cover, swingarm, or rear wheel. It is an open-ended belt that is secured via 12 allen head screws joining a "v" type union. It is meant as an emergency temporary belt to get you home or to the nearest dealer within 200 miles.


I would think this is a good thing to have when going on a long trip or just to have around the house so someone can drive it out to you if you are not too far away from home. Sure beats having to wait several hours in the dead of night in nowheresville and having to go thru the hassle and expense of towing...


anyways, I got it from an HD dealer on the net but they took a week to ship and their service was crappy. I asked them about doing a group buy for us and they were not interested.


You can find these kits on ebay as well for about $110. HD part # 40171-97 for '94 and up Dyna and Softail models, 130 tooth, 14mm pitch, 1-1/8" wide

I bought parts my Harely parts from Zanotti Motors. I'm new to Harleys (I have a Sportster and a Warrior) so I found them out in their forums. The nearest Harley dealer is a hike here and their prices are hard to beat. The catch is you need the part number and you have to payfor return shipping. They have gotten back to me very quickly by emails and refunds are not a hassle otherwise.

There is another one left, for $109.95. Try the best offer at $99.95, it should work instantly like it did for the other one I got. It is way cheaper then the HD dealer, not to mention that I'm sure to have one on hand.

The belt fits any Warrior that has a 1 1/8" pulley. The stock specs are common for all years:

130 tooth, 14mm pitch, 1 1/8" wide

Does Anybody know a second supplier of these belts, and one that is willing to ship to Australia.

I broke my belt last Friday after 61200 Km

I replaced it with a 'S&S and Gates' one because the Yamaha branded ones are $720 Au$ here.

But just the part of being stuck really piXXes me, so would like to acquire a 'home bringer'



Any Suggestions appreciated

If you find somewhere they are still available please let us know. I've been casually looking for one for a while now, but they don't seem to have them anywhere.

Very hard to find item.
I purchased one 4-5 years ago, and had to get it from Ireland.
It did help me on with my second warrior, but they are a PITA to install.

Milkman was looking at making one, but do not know how he went.

Size is very small, approx 5" when rolled up, also have a small bag of pins and an allen key. Have it with me when I go on tour, not for myself as I have a different pulley range now, but for others.

I carry one also but its really made to get to a repair shop maybe not home from a trip. My first choice would be AAA MC towing and the pita belt is there as a last resort. It frees me to range wider at any time with more peace of mind. But I give plenty of effort to correct belt alignment and tension strictly in accordance with the service manual. Been lucky so far.
