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.

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 .
