Who often do you change the belt?

I replaced my 06 Suzuki S50 with a brand new 2012 Stryker yesterday. I rode to home from the dealership and I loved the Stryker.

I read the manual and I was surprized that it is recommended to change the drive belt every 2500 miles (4000km), also I was shock to know that the belt price is minimum $500.:(

I am not a handy guy, and with my current conservative mileage, I would be changing the belt every two years at a cost $800 approx. !!

Who often do you change the belt?

As for changing your belt, you just misread the manual, 2500 miles is for inspecting it. You replace the belt only if damaged or stretched too much to achieve proper tension.
+1 I have over 17,000 miles on mine and the belt is perfect
