I called my local dealership and asked if they had a replacement belt for 2008 XB12X.
I was shocked when they said that they did!

I drove down and bought it immediately and asked the guy how it was that he had a Ulysses belt.
His reply was that it's the same as a big twin or something.

Hmmm.

The belt in the box has ridges on the outside, not smooth.

The numbers on the box are:40307-00B

Not the correct belt. You need G0500.1AKF

Thanks.
I'll give them a call today when they open.
They are usually better than this which is why I left the store with it at all.

Tuber belts were the same as Sportster belts. That's where the sharing ended - when Buell went to the XB, with the pulley that bends the belt "backwards", they got their own belts.

I finally got a chance to drive back and return it.
Turned out that the computer had a "note" added to it from another employee saying that the wrong belt would work.

Same shape size but not ok to bend backwards perhaps?

Well anyways, got my money back and ordered from Lance's excellent website. (As I should have done in the first place!!)
