At what mileage or age does the drive belt get replaced?

A long, long, long time from what I've seen. 50,000 +

A lot of people talk about hard maintenance with the bikes being so low. I have 2 pieces of roughly 2' x 2' plywood doubled up to make about a 1.5" spacer. Put them in front of the tires and drive foreword a foot. Sidestand goes on a scrap piece of 2x6. Leaves me plenty of room on every harley me or my dad has owned, including a lowered softail springer.

Oil changes are stupidly easy, just takes a bit of time since theres 3 of them. I always make drain pans out of old antifreeze jugs for clearance. Wheel removal is basically the same as any bike once you get it off the ground. Changing tires by hand sucks, at least on my road king. Very stiff sidewalls. I'm either buying some better tire tools or going to the dealer next time. Foreword controls suck on the highway imo.

The belt on my 89 FLHS had approx 130K on it when I broke down & replaced it. My 2000 Road King had over 50K when I sold it, still on original belt. I guess they don't have enough suds to break them.

I agree with jules083, basic service is stupid simple & I've never had a real mechanical problem I've had to deal with on either bike.

Good Luck!
