MTS 1000 maintenance, what belts do you use?
I know it was probably covered extensively over the past 15 years, but things change, vendors get new product, etc,
OEM? Aftermarket? Are they all same (rebranded) or everyone has them made by different manufacturer?
Bike a 2006 with unknown age belts, they were "just replaced" when I bought it with 14k miles almost 2 years ago, I know last 2 owners and I believe them it was serviced (valves + new belts and tires) but there is no paperwork because everyone is best friends and it was done on a handshake rather than over the counter, so no one remembers the dates.
I'm thinking it was probably 7 years ago because brand new tires were 7 years old...
Currently have 21k on the clock, due to unfortunate circumstance I loaned the bike that I was gonna use to travel this summer and now I got to make sure Multi is roadworthy, so belts and tensioner bearings are my first suspect due to be replaced.
Got new tires, obviously, new clutch, new fork seals, shock serviced by Ohlins...
I guess that's about it?
