Default OEM or aftermarket belts

I know with some parts going OEM is the way to go. Is that how it is for Ducati belts or are aftermarket pretty good? If so what ones do you use and where do you get them?

I've had these on my Duc for the last 10yrs with no issues, probably due for some new ones myself too.

I plan to order OEM, and get them from Seacoast. Support the locals, and all that.

So I guess you got that bike??

You're gonna want a cam lock tool as well. Makes change the belts MUCH easier.
