Chinese ones don't last. Get a genuine comet belt. That is about as good as you are going to get

My Chinese belt is still on my 13+hp barstool racer with a box stock engine on it...............guess I’m lucky bought the kit in 2014 has the exact same belt.

there's chinese and chinese in all you buy..
technically your 1k$ iPhone is chinese, so is the 30 dollar iPhone clone

The problem is, you have no manufacturer mark on those belts,
so all you see is some generic label (which doesn't even belong to a Tav belt mostly)
And some belts are quite good and others fail in a matter of days.

So, once you need a replacement, just get a comet belt and you have about the highest quality belt you can buy
