You might find it interesting that Honda used Gates belts as original equipment, rebranded "Honda". Amazon sells them for less than $40 for two of them. Your local auto parts store will be able to get them for about $40 each. The NAPA belt is just a rebranded Gates belt.

Thanks! Good information. Is it the Gates 5119 or the Gates T274?

I hadn't heard of the 5119's but I just bought a set of T274's for my 1100. The 1000 uses the same belt.

Thanks Much! Going Sanel Auto Parts to check on pricing. Randakk has them for $47.00 a piece. Also while checking Randakk I went ahead and ordered the special tool for timing belt cover bolts, a bit pricey but anything to make the job easier works for me!
