Yes. You should move it back to align properly.

I just got them from NAPA and the cost for each belt was $33.88. That's in Pittsburgh, Pa. They are made by GATES.

Look at the photo I posted in the thread in General Discussion under Timing belt age.

43K miles, 17 years of age on original Honda belts. I have a crack outlined in that picture!

If you look on the Napa box it says that they are made by Gates.

uh... the prices have jumped...:rollingeyes: I just paid $32 each at the Napa dealer...



Here is the newNapa/Gateson the left and the "NOS" from my NOS engine I just installed.

The "Old" belts are a very odd shape when removed from the engine..

And these have no use at all on them!

You should be able to get them to line up & adjust the belt as necessary to line up the marks. If your still left with 1/2 a tooth off don't worry about it. Then adjust the valves & check the timing.

The price for Gl1000 & Gl1100 are different because they are different belts

Mission complete I was like a lot of people a little afraid it was pretty easy I think the hards part was getting the timing cove off. I would suggest if you do your belts after everything is lined set the tension .turn it by hand like others said to make sure every is right then start it with the cover off let it run a little and recheck the belt tension this may save you from taking the cover off again .I read on hear were another member had to that happen because the belt need to a little bit tighter well I had to that to thanks for all the replies Paul
