Question about 2003 Harley Davidson FLHRCI Road King Classic
You need to look at the belt and determine what caused the break, wheel alignment could cause it or one of the sprockets could have a rough edge on the sprocket, check then to see if they have a razor like edge on the outer edge and if it has a ring to hold the belt onto the sprocket check that it has no burrs on it it as well. if there is no burrs it is possible you got a bad belt and it would have to be checked by the belt manufacture. Regardless if the belt broke they should make it good if they have any kind of reputation, if it was my costumer I would do it without question and at no charge to the costumer and send it to the manufacture for a refund for a defective belt, it happens.. Hope this helps and thanks for using Fix-ya.

Tony, I'm sorry to say, that there is no warranty on any drive belt. I've worked with both final drive belts and primary drive belts and it's the same story, no warranty on them. Usually, the reason for premature failure of any drive belt is that during the installation, the belt was bent in too tight a radius. Harley belts used to come with a piece of paper in the box that told you not to bend the belt in a radius tighter than 4" or so. Bending it this tight damages the internal cords of the belt and leads to premature failure. You should never bend the belt into a loop any smaller than your front pulley. Primary drive belts are more difficult to install than final drive belts. I've seen people replace these belts, fire the engine and bust the new belts immediately. $150 down the drain. Man, that's a lot of work on a Road King to replace the belt only to have it break again. Better luck next time.
