edit: I didn't look at which "lounge" this was posted in...........HOWEVER if you can fit one more in I would recommend the one for when purchased.
Not a bad suggestion.
The purpose of the poll is gather data on how long belts have lasted as well as getting a "sweet spot" for change interval.
The 120K factory recommendation is looking like about 30 k too long
