PostSubject: Alternative Belts?   Wed 19 Oct 2011, 10:45

So, I can get a Honda OEM belt. However, I've also seen posts on Mitsuboshi belts that are as good or better than the OEM...but everyone links to ScooterTrap, and we all know they're long gone.

So, is there still a source for Mitsuboshi belts? Does anyone else make good belts for the Swing? Has anyone looked to see if Gates makes a belt that will fit the Swing?

Buy OEM belts, change at Honda recommended Intervals and you probably won't have to walk. I had one break, near the end of its service life (Helix) carried spare, Helix belt by the side of the road changeable and on my way.

SilverWing belt a little more envolved to change. My take after many years of riding===Honda probably has it pretty well figured out.
