Hello everyone I just put a new thermostat on my Goldwing LTD and it was a big job to get it all apart. I still need to put it back togather, but I was wondering if I should change the timing beltswhile it is mostly apart? It has a little over 19,000 miles on it. thanks :?

Definitely change them unless you know they have been changed in the last few years. Time is as bad or worse on them than miles especially if it sat a lot which it must have with so few miles on it.

definatley change the belts, 19,000 miles means nothing if the belts are 24 yrs old

Beside all the above mentioned reasons you have already done the hard work, changing the belst now is easy and cheap insurance , just do it!

Thanks for all the helpful info guys. I just pulled off the timing belt coversand the belts appear to be the original onesI can still see the Honda logo on them so I ordered 2 Dayco belts from Advanced Auto Parts that should be hear tomorrow. I'm not to familiar with Dayco belts but I figured it was a good brand. Thanks
