    Wrong title!

    It's seems it is a Aircon belt not Alternator belt.

    Thts awsome run on the old belts.... I got them changed at 1 lac kms although there was not much wear and tear seen on the old belts.... since I was going on a 1500 kms tour.. I thought of changing them as a precaution.I would say the original parts come with superb quality and life.
