OEM belt

and 90% of the time if a belt blows prematurely it either was driver error or belt wasn't broke in properly

I have tried three different ones.. keep in mind that there is no scientific data and this includes what I had on my commander ad well.. stock, epi, and gates. The two longest lasting belts were stock and gates...The epi only lasted 2/3 the time of the other two. Just my 2 cents.. hope this helps..

I have been running a Gates C12 and have no complaints. At almost half the price of OEM it was a no brainer for me......I think the OEM is the best belt you can buy but I am not going to spend 2X to get one when the Gates works just as well...

I blew the factory belt on my xmr at 55 miles and 22 hours. Now I replaced it with a gates c12 and I have 47 hours and about 300 miles no issues. Very happy with the belt.

Gates c12 belt had over 1000 miles until I blew it at the dunes a couple weeks ago.
