Bob replied to Paul Stampton's discussion So you think a drive belt should last 10,000km...............
"Several possibilities Paul.  The first two that come to my mind would be whether the belt is a genuine Piaggio O.E.M. one or is there another mechanical problem causing the wear."

Hi Steve,

Sorry to be so slow replying, I've only just seen your question.

Mine is definitely the 1" and is fine.

 

Bob.

Hi Bob, Can you tell me if your Go Cruise is the 1 inch. The guy at WAM told me they would not suit the gts250 as the handgrip is 32 mm dia. Have you tried yours on the 250 and is it OK. When I know I can place an order, thanks, Steve

Gee, I need to check my typing before pushing SEND.

Hi Bob, What size was your Go Cruise; the 1 inch or the metric. I'm ordering them for Martin and mysely, and Karen if she likes. Ciao Steve
