Areo 125 drive belt part # needed

Post by fine »

Anyone know the part number for the Aero 125 drive belt? I read somewhere that an industrial belt with the same part number was an exact duplicate to the Honda part at a fraction of the price. Any truth to that? If I can't get this thing going w/o spending a lot more money I will part it out or sell whole.

Stock Honda Aero 125 belt is No longer Available (NLA) and Bando (the original manufacture does not have them any more). Supposedly the Elite 150 belt will work, it is claimed to be a replacement for the Elite 125 belt which was originally the same belt as the Aero 125 belt.

Original belt for the Aero 125 PN# 23100-KJ9-003 794 x 18.0 x 30

Supposed replacement, BELT, DRIVE 23100-KN7-671 $94.75 (Not cheap) 799 x 17.0 x 30

Aftermarket on flea-bay, http://www.ebay.com/itm/221028011809?ss ... 1438.l2649

I have one of these aftermarket belts but it is still in the box until I get the old clutch and driven pulley off, the PO buggered the nut up until it will have to be filed off. :roll:

Oh and no the Bando number is not the exact same as the Honda number for the original belt.

Honda PN# 23100-KJ9-003

Bando PN# 23100-KJ9A-0030

Thanks. You are a wealth of information. Is Bando an industrial belt? I wonder if there are others, like Gates, that make these. A guy on one forum said he paid less than $20 for one that worked just fine. I'll have to find that post.

Yes, Bando makes all kinds of belts, including the belts for Honda.

Others may make a belt in this size but you will have to look.

Bandit does make industrial belts but not like gates. Gates is a higher quality belt than bandit is. Did anyone else notice that the pitch on that "replacement" belt is off? The extra width should be ok. Maybe a little better top end.

Do all the manufacturers use a similar part number for that size belt? I ordered mine last year through a local Honda dealer and assumed it was a genuine Honda part as they didn't tell me otherwise.

For industrial belts, there are industry numbers. For motorcycle belts, it depends on the belt. This belt was made for Honda by Bando so there is not a competitive interest for other manufacturers.

It turns out that the belt I bought last year from a Honda dealer is in fact a Bando. Don't have a lot of miles on it but when I had the drive apart it looked fine. That's when I saw the Bando name and their part number which is the number Bear posted.

If you are still wondering about a belt that can be used in place of the expensive Bando from Honda,
I have acquired a belt from Gates that has slightly different specs,(799X19X28), but is proving to work very well.
It is in their "Powerlink" line and is used in engines produced by SYM...specifically, a Lance "Cali Classic" (for one)
Cost in in the $20 range.
I have this belt in my Aero 125 for 500+ miles now.
If you are needing to tune-up the variator, I can also recommend Dr Pulley "Sliders" in 19 grams for an improved power curve.... :ugeek:

there's no way. I've been trying to install this belt for 30 minutes now. There's no way in hell that you used a 799 19 28

Back when I had my two Aero 125's , I was unable to locate a perfect new belt match, found a couple that were usable, so I went around and bought up all the good used ones I could find. Keep me scooting until I sold the scooters.

You don't have to spend €100 for an Aero 125 drive belt. You can find them on Amazon and eBay. They are not exotic custom belts.
