Yamaha Genuine Belts and V-Belts have been designed for maximum strength and durability, and each one is designed to fit a specific Yamaha motorcycle or scooter.
Although they may appear to be a relatively simple component, a lot of advanced technology has gone into developing these clean and quiet running final drive systems. Each belt is manufactured to handle a specific power and torque output, and the particular rubber compound used is also very sensitive to the drive system’s running temperature.
As well as developing specific designs and rubber compounds to suit different Yamaha motorcycle and scooter models, the length and width of each belt also plays a crucial role in achieving the desired levels of strength, durability, abrasion resistance and heat resistance.
Don’t make the mistake of thinking that all belts are the same because they’re black and round. They’re most definitely not, so you should always insist on Genuine Yamaha belts and V-belts if you want to be sure that your Yamaha will continue to perform to its maximum potential.
