A pair or two (2) valve timing belts for GL1200 that replaces OEM 14400-MG9-004 that comes with our 87-132 exclusive timing belt cover tool.
The tough, wear-resistant material of these belts resist engine heat and oil and the high tensile strength inner cord construction eliminates stretching. Our 19mm, 88 tooth belt meets or exceeds OEM specifications.
Do you need to replace either of your timing belts cover gaskets?
1975 to 1987 4-cylinder cog belts are a very common automotive type
that should and will last safely to 45,000 miles, provided they are used
in a car with close ratio automatic shifting and fairly medium to high
freeway to highway use. BUT, put them in a Gold Wing with its manual
shift and wider gear change steps creates another situation. Bang,
clunk, up and down, over and over-lashing and stressing the belts
harshly, setting up stress and shear points around the belt.
You can't tell a thing by looking at them as they NEVER show wear, stretch or cracking. The belt construction, a bias fiberglass rubber laminate, does not allow for it because valve timing must NEVER alter.
Hundreds of discussions with customers who have broken
belts puts the risk range at 22,000 to 28,000 miles or 5 years,
regardless of mileage. Push them further is like playing
Russian Roulette with your engine valves and your safety. Preventive
maintenance is the key. If you don't know when the belts were last
changed, you are at risk.
On the other hand, the 1988 to 2000 6-cylinder curvilinear cog belts
are not so risky and rarely break but those darn radiussed cogs just
start to wear during timing fluctuates and a lot of times the bike just
stops running due to sensor shut-downs when the valve timing span
becomes too distorted or irregular. It's no fun sitting on the highway
when you can't figure out what is NOT going on while all systems appear
to start and run.
Customer experiences inform us to change your valve timing belts at
about 35,000 to 50,000 mile intervals for best performance and lowest
risk of being mysteriously stranded.
Just do it! Change your timing belts! We make a bigger sale if you
gamble and lose as lots of riders have done. Engine valves, head
gaskets, exhaust pipe gaskets and new timing belts make a very nice
Fractions of pennies per miles, a small cost to replace and maintain
as compared against damaged engines, huge expenses, towing bill and risk
of life and limb. Don't end up on the side of the road when your most
critical engine component fails!
