I have 8700 miles on my bike. Most of the miles have been in town. Should I be looking at changing my drive belt already and brakes? I did have the change out my rear tire.

Thanks Rick

Suzuki says 14,500 on the belt most folks on this site get 20k-25k. I went 22.5k on mine. Sold my 400 with 46k & still had the OEM pads. You should be fine with both. :thumbup:

brake pads on the 08 front and back have wear indicators that are easy to see with just a flashlight and someone to help get you off the floor when you get down there.mic the belt when you change final drive oil, specs are in bkb its easy!

Yep as the others are really saying you should be good for quite a few more miles yet. Suzuki say 14,500 miles and that's based on fairly hard use with lots of town/city work. So it's easy to go much further if you don't go in town too much and don't drive too hard.

The CVT belt generally lasts many of us around 22,000 miles. I did notice on my last belt change that while the belt was still within specs, it had caused my rpms to increase by about 500 over time. I'll generally buy a new belt around the 14,000 mile point to keep on hand and then like the others have said, I'll check it each time I change the final drive oil.

The brake pads are a little different. Again, I'd have parts on hand. Look for deals and just buy them before you need a tire change. The reason I say that is that on my first rear tire change on the 2007 400, the pads looked good...but were wearing unevenly. Having the pads saved me from needing to buy new pads at the garage when they found the pads worn. I'd also recommend physically looking at the brake pads...in other words, pull the caliper off where you can see the pad wear just because of that potential for uneven wear.

So on the 2007 400, my first set of pads were replaced at about 16,000 miles. On the 2008 400...at 26,000 miles, they are only about half worn.
