Honda says check Timing belts at 100K. I changed the belts on my IS at 73K and they looked like new."
Yes the three O rings and dampers are there in the same way as the Valk.
With regard to the belts I have seen many posts over the years on this forum and others, mainly from new owners to a bike, asking whether the belts should be changed as the mileage is low but the bike is old. For me, the answer is always the same...change the belts. When I've had a new to me bike I figured the peace of mind of knowing the belts are new is far better than trying to convince myself they don't need doing yet.
