yes it is the 139 tooth 1 1/2" wide belt .

I do not know who makes the Drag Specialties belt , they do have a great reputation here in the states .

Gates would be my choice , as they are a belt manufacturer , and they make all kinds of belts for Harleys , they are probably a few dollars more than DS I would guess ..

If they ship overseas , Dennis Kirk here is a good outfit to deal with ..

Many people here have not had good things to say about Falcon . I have personally never used them ..

on drag specialty i've seen this quote "Drag Specialties Rear Drive Belt is carbon fiber reinforced Goodyear engineered Falcon SPC belt that offers up to 33 percent more tensile strength than conventional aramid reinforced belts".so it's falcon?

Unless you are putting lots of horsepower and torque to the driveline , the aramid reinforced will do just fine , there are literally a few million Harleys out there with aramid reinforced belts doing fantastic ..

If you adjust it to the proper tension and the pulleys are good , short of picking up road debris that damages the belt , you should be good for 100,000 miles or more ..

Odds are , if you need to replace the belt , you also need to replace the pulleys ..

The belt is one of the things that Harley has designed right.
