I don't have an 02, but have personally witnessed at least half a dozen breakages. Three of the bikes were out of warranty including my GF's.
The dealer fixed them all at no charge after resisting quite strongly initially, but I told him he had the option to fix them or we would drop the dime (the first time only). Dealer made the calls.

The belt broke on my 2001 at 2300 miles. Dealer replaced with no problems except for the wait for the part. Parts were on backorder due to qty of breakage

I just had an Ultima open belt primary installed and when i road the bike from the shop to my house I noticed an oil spot under the front pully and my first thought was main crank seal so I called the shop and they told me it was left over oil in the motor cavity just residual it will go away. Any help ??
Man, this is a 13 year old thread. And you were supposed to spend your first post on an intro.

Just in case the OP wants to know: Yes I had a belt break on my 2001 RK which I thought was due to a defective belt. The dealer didn't pay for it because I bought the bike used.

The second time it broke was my fault.

700 on my 01. I don't remember the year but there was accusations the an employee was crunching belts.

Hell some of the people are dead in this thread. But I agree with resurrecting threads that are on topic. We tell people to use search function.

I guess we can safely say 02 Harleys aren't going to be warranted now but it is interesting, never heard about it. I have an 03 roadking with the original belt still on it but I only have 15,000 on it.
