Yes, I believe they are the same. I recently ordered a pair from Walmart, about $16 each and free shipping.
They were genuine Gates T274 belts.
Mine were for a 1980, but I think all the 1100's were the same.

They are the same. On my bike they are now Gates T274. You can also still get OEM belts for more $ but Gates make a good product and are used by many Gl owners.

For what it's worth, the OEM Honda-branded belts are made by Gates, too.
