This belt in running enclosed and gets pinched by variator - that would be heating up pretty good, so air has to flow thru for max longevity.
Your 2006 is appreciably more "ventilated" than later models. Cannot think why Suzuki would change that, but they did!

Peugeot, like Piaggio, seem to like the more open look. THEIR belt change interval - 6000 miles.

Despite all "our" moaning, our Burgmans (400s) seem to have one of the longer belt service lives (14500 miles+) among mid range scooters - with the "as designed" engineering.

And I had a Majesty too (A 250cc). IT required a CVT rebuild at less than 10K and 2 years old, tho' that came under warranty.
Sadly, VERY little is perfect in this world.
