Parman, you sure you aren't married to my wife? Mine is better than she used to be about throwing things out but things still "disappear" and no one knows where they went?? Well if the guy in the landfill has a Gold Wing he'll appreciate their generosity.

Looked on Amazon, I believe it was yesterday or maybe day before, and the Gates T275's were $12.00 and change. This morning back up to $16.00 and change. Still a far cry from OEM however!

Timing Belt

Just check Amazon and they state that the Gates T275 does not fit my 1990 GW Aspencade Can someone tell me if they do? They do not list a belt for my bike. My local dealer wanted $76 each :wtf:

Thanks in advance.

Direct quote from the Goldwings Tips page:

"GL1500 Timing Belts. Goodyear 40275 timing belts are available for the GL1500. Gates have been supplying the T275 timing belt for the GL1500. Also available is the Napa 250275. Note that the same timing belts fit all GL1500 models from 1988-2000."

Q. - What does Amazon know compared to the wealth of knowledge on this site?
A. - SQUAT.

Used the T275 on my '97. Easier to change timing belts on the 1500 than any previous model IMHO. Tutorials on this site for that, too.
