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?

That belt will outlast bike if you keep it properly adjusted and no damage to it occurs. Bike should last near forever also!!
Our local Yami Dealer says they have only changed a belt twice. 1 due to and accident and another on a Raider where a smaller rear pulley was put on. They have been in business for 40 years.
