Default roadside belt change

Anyone done this and is it worthwhile carrying a spare?

Easy enough to do but carrying a spare to do it isn't something I'd do or worry about.

Well, F.W.I.W. any run more than a day or well out of the area I have a spare on board. When that belt lets go it is a sad moment. Have changed several on the side of the road, last one was about 20 minutes. Dual exhaust will take longer, and there are some other considerations. The spare,(and I advocate putting on a new belt in the comfort of your home- the used belt is much easier to install roadside), your old belt can be coiled into three coils and stuffed into a ziplock bag, easily carried. I think they call that pro active?

I think it's all about where your going. Is it dirt? Are there rocks? What distances? I mean, if you stay in the polulated areas where you have bitumen and cell phone reach, you can always get help or have someone who can sent you one. Or get help from a nearby motorcycle shop. If you plan to cross the Gibson Desert on your own I would take a spare with me if I were you

Simply riding late evening, or at night puts most businesses in the unavailable category. Why wait for hours, maybe in inclement weather or a questionable area when you can be on your way in a half an hour? Very satisfying to pull it off and continue on your way, just saying.

Got that covered with two spare magazines.

Handgun is not really an option for me- Australia.
Paul, do you do it all on the side stand? Is it easy enough to move the wheel forward?
Thanks for the replies. All my riding is in the country, sometimes long way from anywhere, even no phone signal. A very expensive tow truck ride!

Yes, on the side stand, and once you start the belt up the back of the rear pulley it will stay there while up get up and roll the bike forward allowing it to settle into its place on that pulley.

I was forced to go through a freshly chipped road above 1500 meters in autumn... near sunset... did proceded at man walking speed... nonotheless some bitches stick glued and got chewed between sprocket an belt... fortunately nothing happened and at home removed the debris...
sadly...
i am not able to change belts on roadside
i hadn't a spare with me
overthere is difficult to find cell signal... and at night temps drop all of a sudden

no problem with bad guys here and expecially overthere... in the remote case, at least for the moment, i do not need a firearm... (even outlaws do not use them here... more more years of jail in case...)... very seldom you hear of robbery or harassment at gunpoint... so simply you had to count on your hands... and maybe objects you find at the moment of need... like Krav Maga instructor taught me...
never happened serious cases though...

with wolves is another story... overthere, at night, are them at the peak of the food chain... sure not you...
