I'm in the same situation except my Aspencade has only 12,000 miles on it. My bike did sit in a shed for six years and I plan on changing the belts this winter but it's something I think about every time I ride the bike.

Respectfully,

Ed

Once you get to the point where you can a good look at the belts you are 90% of the way to changing them. I suggest changing them due to age not miles and recording it in the manual for reference.

It's not that big a job and there's lots of help here.

I used rudys link and changed my belts in about an hour. It was easy. Yes by all means change your belts now dont take a chance with the old ones on it.

Allright... lemme chime in here. DO IT! I changed mine about a month ago using Rudy's instructions... not only did the bike run better. My mileage shot up from about 29 on a good day to an average of 36. On my trip to west Texas last week, I had two tank fulls that I did over 41 mpg. Phenomenonal!

Rudy's instructions are top notch. Just follow step by step and you'll "get 'er done" in no time. My 91 only had 12K on the clock and changed them shortly after joining this forum. I like my valves nice and straight sitting in the heads, just like are supposed to be. I've seen some bent/broken ones outta some V-8 cars. For the money its cheap insurance. And yeah, I did the oil/filters/coolant as well. Use the Hondaline coolant.

Hope that helps...
