Had to change my vote, my belt has no signs of rock damage, it's freakin cut all the way!!!

The bike is no longer under warranty (23000 kms in 3 years) and my delaer is 1800 km away...

I'm so pissed of right now

Wowser, where did you get that cut from? I heard replacement cost is pretty expensive at around $800 depending where your from. Sorry about your luck

happened yesterday on a 150 km weekend ride, for my it's a belt failure, can't be a rock, or anything on the pavel, nothing can be stuck in the belt guard to do that kind of damage

meb11481, I have exactly the same belt damage as you. My belt looks identical to yours. So I would be interested to know if your dealer thinks it is a belt failure. (I have just contacted my dealer, but not had a reply yet.)

So dealer told me they will ask Ducati Italy (I´m from Argentina) for a courtesy warranty, as mine has expired. Don´t know how much time will take for an answer.

Not really high expectations... customer service here always sucks

update, ducati is covering the belt but not the labor and has to done by a ducati tech

the thing is my dealer is 1800 km away, covid is making a disaster in argentina, send the bike is gonna cost a lot more than the belt, no domestic flights are allowed yet so bringing the tech is not posible yet (and quite expensive)

have to negociate if they could send the belt...

With that said, there's a carbon fiber aftermarket chain guard assembly (Carbonworld????) made for XDiavel. Wonder if it's superior in terms to offer better road debris protection??
Can anyone recommend a belt guard that reduces the risk of this damage?

The aluminium belt guard thread suggests that Ducati's alumium guard has cons not just pros. The Carbon King appears to offer two sizes of drive belt guard, but I'm unclear which would reduce the risk of gravel damage.

your best best bet is to replace the front drive belt pulley guard with the more open Ducati performance one. That way if a small stone gets in there it can escape. 15k miles and no belt issues

I have had belt damage for over 2 years now, Was a fine crack so I fitted a roland sands open cover hoping that would sort the issue but sadly not and ended up with an even bigger wear grove out of it all the way around so they do not work!! I have now removed the most forward little belt guard to let stones/Rocks out sooner as they look to be getting stuck to the fat sticky rear tyre when hot and fired off down the belt to get stuck. I will run it like this until it snaps or don't see further damage and will replace next year.
