Cracks in the rubber like the one in the image are superficial. It's like saying paint cracks mean the wall is unsound.

The serp belt's structure is in the cords of the belt, and such cracks do not affect these cords.

If you start to lose this rubber, it still won't harm the belt structure, but that's when I replace it.

These belts are not just rubber, but the load bearing part of the belt is the polyaramide cord.

The strength of this cord allows such belts to be used for final drives on heavyweight H-D motorcycles, which makes the serp belt's load minuscule by comparison.

Polyaramide is used to make those bullet proof vests bullet proof.

There is a belt stretch indicator on our HRVs, and if that is stable, the belt is stable.
