My 1100 has been sitting up for about 10 years. In that time, it was started every couple of weeks but didn't get out on the road much.



Just prior to that, a new timing belt was installed; probably has about 200 miles on it.



I'm wondering if it may be necessary to replace even with the low milage.



Thanks for your help!

It is necessary if it going to break before you get to the recommended change interval. I know "DUH". It would be worth looking at it for cracks and signs of deteriation. Its a judgement call as to its worthiness and a gamble it won't break. How lucky do you feel?



It would be a good idea to examine all the master and wheel cylinders carefully.



I'd also change all (brake, cooling, oil and gasoline) fluids.



Enjoy the Ride!

if you tear it down far enough to look at the belts then you are worried about your luck, replace them

Regardless of the miles on them, if the bike was mine and it had been sitting for 10 years I'd change them out. Miles is one factor - times is an entirely separate factor.

For under $40 it will be money well spent.
