Clean garage = Wanna work

I don't know what it was, but something lit a fire under my ass to clean out the garage on Sarurday. It was REALLY bad. Blame the cold winters, or the fact that I'm a lazy phuck, but during the winter months nothing EVER gets put back in it's right place. It just gets thrown in the garage and I tell myself, "You'll clean it up one day." By then, you'd think a bomb went off. I had a Coats tire changer and a Bear wheel balancer sitting in the middle of the floor. Tools everywhere. 2 flat tires on the wife's quad. Horrible. So anyway, it's all clean now. I have my tire changer all cleaned off and in it's right place. Same goes for the wheel balancer. All my tools put away. The floor swept, all the garbage thrown out. All my chemicals sorted out. Really nice. When the garage is clean like it is, I find reasons to go out there and hang out.
Saturday while I was sorting out my chemical section, I found a brand new unopened bottle of BelRay DOT4 brake fluid. (I bought it years ago as an excuse to go into a motorcycle shop I always drive by on my way to work. And, I hate being the guy that walks in, looks around, then walks out.) I figured, well, I didn't just buy the MityVac to bleed the Ranger's clutch, plus, the Ducati's brake and clutch fluid is from the factory! In there 7 years!
Biggest PITA of bleeding the front brake and clutch was having to take the windshield off to get to the cap screws but it made it easier to add fluid as I suckt it out. I did the clutch first, and I removed the lever. Had to do it to get that friggen' glue out've the adjustment screw! Threw some white lube on the pivot screw too. All done, NICE! Before, it was adjusted waaaaaaay wrong. The clutch didn't start to grab till the very end of the travel, and, there was no free-play what-so-ever. But it's nice now. Even if it's too loose, at least now I can adjust it. Did the front brake next. No problems, I'm sure it helped that I only have 1 front disk. Then the rear brake, only change was I had to grab a 12mm wrench instead of the 8mm I used for the clutch and front brake. Easier to keep an eye on the rear fluid level 'cause of the clear plastic reservoir.
Then, I started looking at the cam belt covers.
I really didn't wanna mess with 'em till I order the new belts, but I said, "What the hell."
Took off all the covers (except for the center one 'cause I really didn't wanna mess with disconnecting the oil cooler line) and gave the belts a good look. Granted, they only have 1,940 miles on 'em, but they're 7 years old. They didn't look too bad at all! No shiney surfaces on the backing or the teeth. No missing teeth. No dry rot. The "part number paint" was worn off of the backing but I guess that's to be expected. Both belts passed the 45 degree twist test and the 5mm allen key test. If it were a car, I would just leave 'em as is and wait untill THE MILEAGE said to change 'em. But, she's my baby, and I'm gonna buy her those shiney new kevlar belts.

The best price I could find was $44 each on ca-cycleworks.com for part number 73710051A. Anyone know a website that has 'em cheaper?
Thanks!

Seems to me that's the best reason to try to find the best price on the little things like cam belts
