Timimg belt tension pulley

Postby Camp » Thu Oct 13, 2016 8:49 pm



Anyone know the best place to purchase top quality tension pulleys for a reasonable price? Am in the market for two new ones, as I am shortly going to change my timing belts, and at a 107,000 miles , I am definitely going to change the pulleys, too. Honda dealer wants $109.00 + tax, for one.Think I can do better than that. Thanks for any advice anyone can give.

"OIL CHANGE?" _FM 07-2009
Know its new taste and be loyal, you'll know when to change that oil.
Taste testing as the miles flow, souring as that acid grows.
And don't flirt with dirt or darkened oil, all the faster your engine will spoil.

Hey Camp,

I've just done mine, about three weeks ago. I used the Gates belts part number T275 and I bought idlers from my local auto factors store, branded Blue Point, part number ADG07690. Belts were €35 each and idlers €25 each. Bike is running like a dream. There are Gatess idlers available too, part number T42015, but I couldn't source these in Ireland at the time.

I used an air hacksaw and cut off the old rollers between the roller and the plate. Then drilled out the old centre with a 10mm drill anf used a 10mm bolt and nylock nut to attach the new roller. See pics.

Thanks everyone for all the information. I can see new timing belts and tension pulleys in the near future.
