Customers often contact Gates regarding belts for motorcycle applications. Unfortunately, Gates does not sell motorcycle replacement belts directly to aftermarket users. The best method to obtain a proper replacement belt is to go through the dealer network for the particular brand of motorcycle.
Various aftermarket distributors also service the market, and they serve as an alternate source for replacement belts. However, some motorcycle belts sold through the original dealer network may be manufactured with proprietary constructions not available through aftermarket distributors.
The standard Poly Chain® GT® Carbon™ belts sold by Gates general market distributors have the GT tooth style. These belt are not recommended for use with motorcycle sprockets, which are typically designed with the HTD® tooth style.
Aftermarket distributor can typically assist with custom motorcycle applications. However, belts in lengths other than those available from aftermarket distributors may require new tooling at costs in excess of $25K per mold.
