Whereabouts are you ?.....I have them in stock and Riders will get you one.
Am I right in assuming you think the belts are too expensive ?......there is no alternative.

I'll be very surprised if dealers can't get the belt, my two new Uly ones were here in a few days from Riders and I know one was definitely ordered in from harley because they only had the one on the shelf. Like Maz says he also has them in stock and the genuine belts are the only proven belts so far.

Belts do seem very expensive for what they are, but there's not a massive price difference in a chain and sprocket kit for any other Sportbikes, and they are dirty, noisy and need adjusting😀

I was going to buy one off Maz as they're genuine and the price is competitive with the rest of the country but I was lucky enough to have a friend bring me one from the US, as he owed me a favour. The dealer he got it from said there were only 4 left in Cali BTW.

Maz fitted mine and gave me a tutorial, worth taking that option as the new ones are tight as all hell...I would've struggled with confidence tightening this.

I now have a shiny new belt and a supple spare for long trips and peace of mind.

(I got 18k out of the 'spare' and should hopefully get at least this out of the new one...I doubt you'd see that many miles out of anything aftermarket/cheap (Unless anyone has experienced different?))

I'm sure they are still manufacturing belts though, both of the Uly belts that I have just bought had very recent 2017 manufacturing dates.
