Not a big deal to change the belts. In the FAQ forum you have a good step by step explanation with pictures. You'll need just a usual tools (few wrenches, etc.).



However, be careful and don't hurry, do it right. As told in tutorial, very important, after you've fited the new belts, BEFORE you try to start the engine turn it by hand several turns to make sure everything is OK.

Not a 1500 such as your amazing example, but it took simple hand tools for my 1100's belts. Like he said, be absolutely SURE you have everything lined up right with the marks. I double, triple checked everything before cranking it over by hand. Fortunately I did it right...whew.

No need to undoany sprocket, at least not on early models and I'm pretty sure that you don't have to do that on 1500 either!



When removing sprockets (to remove the head or something) then you do need a special tool to fix it in place to undo the bolt, but you don't need it to change the belts.



Good luck!:waving:

Yeah follow the directions on here that Rudy did, step by step, don't skip anything, especially the first time doing it. It doesn't take much more than a Phillips screwdriver, and a couple wrenches. It is fairly simple, but as said, kind of time consuming. I did it in about 8 hours, but next time I think I can do it in about 3-4. Mainly because I wasn't sure how to get the fairing pieces off.

yeah sixfore123 why all the ant. I tell you what . I am missing an ant why not get rid of some of that and make some cash for those timing belt tools.

I think so many antenas are cancerous, or may be against some religions. You wouldnt want to offend any religion now would you???

the only reason im changing them is i dont know how long the one on have been there on the bike hate them to brake,what a mess that would be.yes if you havent done these before its looking for the bolts i suppose what take time;and it will be 5 tears or 50,000 miles before you do it again,by that time you d forget it all and away you go again.at 68 its easy some times forget what i go in the shed for,oh yes a screwdriver geoff

I thought you had all those antennastrying to get reception off the Space Shuttle. Or Sputnik.

Real good idea on changing your belts. Change the coolant hoses too while you're in there.
