My stock belt almost came apart after just a few flights, went to my LHS and got that exact belt, up to know I've had no problems. The guy at the LHS told me the stock belt is crap, and that he hasn't seen anyone brake a maverikk yet.

Also make sure its not too tight.

Where can I order one? My LHS doesn't stock them.
I broke my stock belt last week and put another stock belt on but I would like to have a good replacement on hand (I did remove the idle pully as suggested on this forum)

Bro,

I have to ask....have you removed your idler pulley yet????

Yes, the Mavrik and Techmodel belts are much better, but the stock one will last a very long time if you remove your idler pulley! There is no reason to leave it on and even with the better belts it will cause issues.
