    1991 R 1100 R Alternator Belt-merged with 1999

    Anyone know the correct aftermarket number for that belt? I have a NAPA store in town so that would be best but I'm sure they could cross reference any brand other than BMW.

    Thanks in advance for the correct answer.

    Why not just buy the belt from your BMW dealer? It is a specific 4-rib poly-v groove belt in a small size not common to a lot of engines. Plus its less than $25.

    In some rare cases, this belt applies to the later dual spark models. We recommend you look at your old belt prior to ordering. You may be able to confirm this if the 779 PN is still legible. 4PK611 may also be on this belt.

    Thanks for the answer.

    I'm looking for an after market replacement. Not the BMW part number.

    Because I live 70 miles from the nearest dealer and I have an auto parts place in town.

    I bought one from NAPA for my RT but when I sold the bike, the spare belt went with it. Unfortunately I didn't keep the sleeve with the part number on it.

    fwiw, the GatorBelt is a reall good "almost perfect' fit for the early alternator belt setup. it's just a bit long. might be best to consider it as an "in a pinch" replacement, rather than a "go to" option. if installed, i'd leave it on (ran one for several years, no real issues), but probably not installing as a first chioce.

    Ok, I understand. BMW dealers aren't a dime a dozen like the HD guys. Although, it does give you a reason to ride to the dealer.

    I have learned, that from being on the dealer side of the parts counter, we really do appreciate seeing repeat customers.

    Read further, this is the number you need "4PK611 may also be on this belt."
    That is the cross number

    Actually, a good thing to do is write the NAPA part number in the owners manual, or somewhere under the plastic (under the belt cover) in case it should ever fail on the road. At least NAPA stores are far more common than BMW cycle dealers.

    Since they don't weigh much or take much room I just carry one with me on long trips. A broken alternator belt will just wreck your whole day...
