My point is simply that anecdotal information, such as yours, is useful for forming reasoned guesses but not for determining facts. Collective experience and data prove or disprove anecdotal experience.I own a 2013 T4, a 2014 T4 and a 2014 T2. What are you riding? All I am speaking of is not what I read but actual experience I have had with my machines.
Prior to the recall, it was very apparent that belts were failing prematurely. That appears to have ended.
If a failure pattern emerges, you may be on to something. But right now, we're not seeing abnormal belt failures, like we did.
There is no data - yet - to prove your theory right or wrong.
