Ditto x 2! My 03 is still on the original. If you run in the correct gear, keep the belt dry and relativly clean, and don't try stupid stunts- the belts will last for a long time!

For those of us that like to "play" in the mud or other things that might cause belt problems, i would recommend that you purchase a belt and take it on trips with you just in case there might be a problem. If you have several friends that have the same machine or one that uses the same belt, this could be a life saver if you ever need one.
