Hi all,
So happy to have a 2005 AN400 with 20K miles on it from a single owner that seems to have treated it well. Runs great with zero issues, so far.

Seller had records for his oil/oil filter changes but when I asked if the drive belt had been changed, he gave me a blank stare. From the videos I have found, it seems pretty easy to swap.

So I think I at least need to do the cvt/drive belt, gear oil and put on a new rear tire. Anything else I should check/replace?

Best price I can find for the 27601-15F10 oem drive belt is $95.

Any advice for what rear tire is favored/cheap? Lots of threads here on tires, but doesn't seem to be a favorite from what I have read so far?

Thanks.

The Owners Manual recommends a belt replacement at 14,000 miles...
many riders get about 20,000 miles. It is also a good time to replace the
rollers in the variator....you'll be into it anyway. Might be a good time
to consider a set of Dr Pulley sliders instead of rollers...19g have worked
well in my '05-400. Check the How-To thread for videos about how to get
into the CVT & the variator & belt replacement. There are also videos
on changing the gear oil in the rear gear drive.

If he has never changed the brake fluid it would probably be a good idea to do that.

Yep...I've done the 'All Fluids & Filters' thing every 2 years myself.
The coolant & brake fluid age too. Clean & fresh/new fluids are
cheap insurance & equal peace of mind.

what is the difference between a slider and a roller?

A roller in a variator is shaped like a small wheel,
& it rolls up the ramp of the rear plate in the variator.
Because of it's size, it can only roll so far, up into the
wedge of the rear plate.
Dr Pulley sliders are more of a wedge shape, but they weigh
the same...so because of their shape, they can go further
up the ramp, toward the outer edge of the rear plate,
resulting in a slightly higher 'gear' ratio, & therefore, a slightly
lower RPM at highway speeds. Check some of the videos in
the 'How To' thread on this website...micbergsma has several
good videos on CVT & transmission maint. & repairs.
