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.

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.
