    How long should the final drive belt last?
    I just snapped 1 on my Deuce 17000 km. The last bike I had (Heritage) it was still the original belt when I sold it and it had over 60000 km on it.

    Belts should last a long time if they are kept in adjustment. Chances are you may have picked up something that damaged the belt or used something to clean the bike that attacked the belt itself. Check out the pulley to see if the hard coating is wearing off and that can shorten the life of the belt.

    Thanks Glider, I had another real good look at it and it seems like I may have picked something up, it has like a jagged break with small indentation in it, maybe a sharp rock.
