I know where there are several wrecked XB12 of differing models. Are the drive belts and idler pulley setups the same between them all? I'm thinking of seeing if I can get a couple of the belts if they will let them go at traditional junkyard prices; not the "how much can we get on ebay or craigslist?" prices.

In my mind a used belt off of a wrecked bike shouldn't cost more than 20 or 30 bucks.

Thoughts?

Probably should have mentioned that the target bike is an 08 XB12XT.

Besides the obvious XB12X I think any of the long swing arm bikes are the same. Someone else will chime in but my understanding was the xb9 has a smaller diameter tensioner pulley but the belt is still is too small for our X and XT.
Reach out to Phelan . He has a pretty good stash of used parts for sale and knows his stuff!

All of the Xb12X, XT, XP, SS, STT use the same belt. Belts from S, R, Sx, Scg, Sl, or 1125s will not work due to length differences.

Froggy, Aren't all the XB 12 and 9 tensioners the same?

Ourdee, the short answer is no, as the 2003 XB9 had an entirely different belt setup. Ignoring that one oddity, I'm not sure about the rest. When I was looking for a tensioner a few weeks ago I found out the long wheelbase bikes have a different part number than the short wheelbase, but I'm not sure the actual difference.

While you're there, see if they'll let an engine go at junk yard prices.
