I have a 90 SE with 68,000 miles and I replaced mine a couple of months ago. It had about 40,000 when I bought it 4 years ago and I really had no 'history' from previous owner. I would say the belts were probably originals? Nothing really difficult if you follow instructions posted elsewhere on this forum. I think it is especially critical to turn the motor over a couple of times by wrench on crank and check that timing marks stay in line. My tensioners were a little 'noisy/loose/suspicious' so I replaced them also. Several dollars but good insurance. Good Luck. :)

I just replaced the belts and installed a 4-degree trigger wheel on my wife's 1988 GL1500 trike last month. The bike only had 63,000 miles on it, but after 20 years, I just felt better changing the belts. I followed the instructions here on the forum and everything worked perfect.

On my previous 1990 GL1500SE, I changed the belts the first time at 105,000 miles and the second time at 200,000 miles. Belts looked good both times, but thought it best to get them out of there.
