    Just noticed stone damage to my drive belt, bit of a bugger as done less than 3000 miles but we have a lot of coarse chip seal here in New Zealand. As a lot of my mileage is done in areas where it would take hours to get a tow and I’d have to leave my bike to get cell phone coverage I’m going to replace it and play it safe. Have been searching forums and internet for what I need for my 09 FXDF without much success. Have some questions for the “experts”:

    * 1 1/8” Wide 133 tooth – is this correct?
    * Is a non-harley belt better than a “factory” HD Belt?
    * Options I’ve seen on the net include. Any comments in regards these?
    - Falcon
    - Gates
    - Dayco Panther
    - Supermax
    - Primo
    * Where is the best place to source a belt?

    Any help/advice appreciated

    I personally think the new factory Harley drive belts are hard to beat.

    I agree with Chopper. Somethings are better bought from the Motoco. The fit should be like a hand to a glove. Love the Fat Bob, I got a 2008 myself!

    The new S&S belts are actually stronger than the Genuine item.
