Just a heads up to whoever else might be interested, the Gates website is NOT mobile friendly. I attempted to get one for myself but was unable to enter any of the info necessary to get one.

Pretty sure nobody else around here has one of these babies. I just hope I don't lose it before I get to use it. !!

Mine showed this morning. I'm not so sure it will tell you anything more than the fact that your belt is wearing, there's really nothing specific to tell you WHEN it is a good idea to replace it.

Yeah the reason for the thing is that some new compounds for belts don't exhibit the telltale cracking that indicates replacement is needed.
