In the middle of my winter service and am contemplating whether to do the timing belts this year. My Gl1500 has 108k on the clock and the belts were replaced at 70k. My concerns are that if I replace the belts now, will the adjusters possibly need replacing at the same time.

As I prefer to have all parts to hand before I start on any job, is it a good idea to order a pair of adjusters (not cheap) with the new belts as it is best to replace them with that mileage on the engine, or to wait until I can inspect them ?

What I am really saying is; is it prudent to replace the adjusters after 108k miles ?

Thanks

They are usually OK. If you don't hear any unusual noise from that area now they will probably be fine.

belts on 1500 are rated to change at 100,000 but how old they are is just as important IMHO..so when was the first change done???

Hi Ron

Although Honda does not seem to have a hard and fast rule for the changing of belts in the 1500....everything I have read and from the recommendations of others it seems to be roughly every 5 years and/or 80,000 miles/128,000 kilometers.

Hope this helps

Cheers

Rod
