BMW recommends that you replace the belt at 60,000 km, according to my
R1100S manual (it may be different for your bike). I have heard from Big
List members they fail before that. As a result, I have created an entry in
my Service Log to remind me to change the Poly-V belt at 40,000 km, 2/3 of
the expected life-cycle, just as a precaution. My service log automatically
reminds me to do the required work when I cross a date or mileage boundary.
If you want to get a (always) free copy of my Service Log, which also
include a Mileage Log, a Trip Log (etc.), go to:
