One more vote for Gates belts as being the best.
There are thousands of kit-built airplanes out there that use toothed belts to
drive the propeller. It is constantly emphasized on the forums to use Gates
belts since they last twice as long as other brands, and you don't want to trust
your life to a cheap belt at 5000 feet up.
I just bought Gates from Amazon for my GL-1000.

Yes Craigmri. You will need a pair of cam belts to do the job. The Gates T-275 will most definately work. Check that the idler pulleys spin freely while you are at it.

I believe the belts are actually made for some car engine so their application chart probably does not list them to fit anything else. I have seen that before on Amazon, seems nothing they have fits any motorcycle.

Just ordered two Gates T275 belts...$31 shipped to my door(Amazon). What a deal!

My '98 Aspencade only has 8500 miles but at 14 years old I want peice of mind knowing that they're new.

I changed my 14 year, low mileage, old belts last year for peace of mind too. I was pleased to see though that the originals still looked as good as new with no signs of cracking at all. But still glad I did the job as it does give peace of mind knowing.

Yeah, I ordered some struts for my wife`s car from A****n and even though their database had them as the right ones they wouldn`t fit. To make a long story short, I still have the wrong struts in my garage trying to get rid of them and had to get a new pair sent. Always go to manufacturers page for application. A****n is not always right.

I like order...and some day I will have it.
