Hello all
Your advice please as I can't work it out from the Hynes manual!
My 2006 registered 125 Evo has a recorded 14500 miles (purchased at 13500) which I believe to be correct, based on the overall condition of the bike. I do not have any service history so don't know what has, if anything , being done to the transmission. The take off from standing, even up hill, is very smooth as is the acceleration up to 60mph (the most I have done). There is no noise or vibration.
As I do less than 800miles/year, maximum 80ml round trip and quite gently these days can I leave everything alone?
Will I get 'notice' of failing like rough take off or vibration before the is a major problem?
Thanks in anticipation
Regards

Thing is belts have a limited life, and when gone beyond there's always a chance of it breaking. So personally I would consider changing it for peace of mind, and I would know exactly the mileage to the next time. It is usual to change the variator rollers and suchlike at the same time.

You don't sound like you go far away from home and there is every possibility it had a new belt at 18,000km/roughly12,000miles and if it did it would certainly look very new still.
I would do a visual check of the belt, and if the dust inside the cover isn't bad and the belt looks crack free and especially if the part number markings are still legible I'd leave it until at least next summer when messing about is more comfortable. The first factory belt always last longer than replacements as they are fitted to a brand new clean dust/dirt free environment. It will probably go 30-50% longer than the service interval.

Thanks Dave and all.
Next ride will be in the new year for an MOT. All 8 mile round trip Kidderminster to 'Readspeed' at Stourport on Severn and back home. Not likely to be used then before Easter. Yes I am soft!
When the weather warms up I'll take the cover of and have a look see. If it looks like it needs doing I will have to decide how. Readings Haynes I understand how to do the job, no fears there but the trouble is dodgy disks in the base of my spine and the necessary bending to do it. I don't have a lift or pit to be able to reach without bending.

I was out today with a positively balmy 17C.

Though naturally, now I've commented, it'll be snowing sometime soon but hopefully not before a couple of sneaky rides next week.

I've temporarily garaged my bikes and been using the car since storm Desmond. So wet and drivers are complete idiots around here. If I'd been on the X9 last week going to work I wouldn't be typing this now as some plonker turned right across so close in front of me (in the car) that I smacked straight into the side of them. Car now in the body shop and courtesy car in use. There was loads of empty road behind me that she (...yes a she!) saw but failed to see me 20 yards away so leisurely pulled across.
I think I'll stay on 4 wheels until Easter.

Dave, I feel the same about the idiots, but you could be a better rider than car driver. Stats prove that.
They will have to build Sherman tanks again, to feel safe against these idiots.
Hope all gets sorted soon.
