Belt mileage question

How many miles can I expect to get out of my drive belt? I have a 2011 RGU and currently have close to 34k on the clock. I just want to know when i can expect to do this job. It would seem to be a good time to change the clutch out too since alot seems to have to come off to get to the belt.

2011 Road Glide Ultra, Andrews 57H, VeeTwin Performance street port, Big Sucker Intake, Rhinehart 2/1 w 4" muffler, Power commander V, Paugcho 17" bars, Stock seat recovered with leather, Michelin Comander II 140/80B front, Yokohama Envigor 205/60/16 rear. It's better on the dark side.

I've seen guys get 100K with normal riding. A lot depends on your riding style (burnouts) etc & maintenance. Check your HD Manual on belt adj. Good luck.

On my 1985 FLHTC, I got 85,000 before the teeth tore off. But I had installed Cam, Competition ECU 2K before failure.
(After motor upgrade, I could pull front wheel off ground in in First, Second, and Third gear, and was doing it when failure)
On my 1989 Ultra, I was at 189,000 on the original belt at trade.
On my 1998, I was at 156,000 on original belt when totaled in Left Turn Accident.
I have 83,000 on my '09 right now, and expect many more miles.

There used to be an emergency repair belt made by Harley . Worked too , my buddy on a road trip pulled off a fuel pump and it broke just as he got to the road . Was on his way in a short while .
