O'reilly Masterpro Belt

Anyone have experience with this? I got a free $20 gift card for doing a survey, and while I know its no GatorBack, it still seems good enough.



My current belt is the original that came from the factory and has 150k on it. My mechanic said it's in pretty good shape, but I still don't get the warm fuzzy about that many miles on a single belt.

it's cheap enough to buy another one this winter when you can't stand the squealing anymore. but why not use the gift card and put it with what you'll get after cashing in beer cans to fund a gatorback?

I checked every parts store in my area (autozone, advance, Oreilly, NAPA, and even the Goodyear tire place), and they don't carry Gatorback belts anymore. I would have to get one from Amazon or Ebay. Gates belts are pretty good, and one of them stopped my truck from squealing after the cheap dayco belt squealed more than the 10 year old original.

Detailed Description

Designed for the budget conscience customer who wants quality, but does not require the superior performance of the premium belt.


Hmm... not sure if I would bother with this belt. Since manufs usually put their rosiest descriptions on the for sale pages, I find the above telling. On the bright side, it's only a serpentine belt. If it squeals you replace it and you won't lose your engine if it breaks. Maybe just a fan, hoses, radiator and a pulley or two.

I am in the parts business and personally prefer Gates belts. When I put my zip code in, they want $22.99 for their house brand belt. While it may be made by a major manufacturer, it certainly isn't a "premium" belt. Buy a Gates or Goodyear from rockauto.com for about $20 and save the gift card for some SeaFoam or an air filter........

Why not spend the little extra money on the OEM belt and go another 150k on it? Instead of taking a gamble on how long this one would last?

Part of Honda's reliability is because they use high quality parts. I'd check the tensioner as well.

The OEM belt is a Bando, which is less than $20 from Amazon. Mine lasted 120k miles before it started making any noise, so it's completely worth the $20.

Well that's just awesome, but so is the gatorback on rockauto for $19.41 shipped. Which would be better? I've heard great things about both products

Thing is, the OP has a gift card for OReilley's, so with the $20 gift card the Gates belt would cost under $15. That's a great deal for a good belt. The belts on Amazon would also have shipping cost added to them, making them not such a great deal.

No biggie on shipping with Amazon, I have prime from my college days so I only pay half price for it! Since I can get the bando or the gatorback for the same price (and that's pretty low imo), I'd rather save the OReilly card for something more urgent or frivolous.

couldn't agree more. I changed mine 100K with the Bando from Amazon. It's clearly the same as the honda belt.

After my OEM belt started making noises at about 80k miles, I swapped it with a Gatorback and haven't had a problem in about 20k miles. You can't go wrong with either belt.
