    The cambelt on those engines are 100k but if and when u change it is really up to you I wouldn't leave it till that. I would also change the water pump at the same time the kit for the cambelt is about £100 water pump is about £40 and the labour depends on what garage you use I'd phone around or a garage recommended to u
    VXR IS FOR LIFE NOT JUST FOR THRILLS !

    60k is what most would recommend for that engine, defiantly get the water pump changed as its normally that that fails and throws the belt. Chris is spot on with prices, but give your local VX dealer a call and get him to quote you, but expect around the £250 mark, supply and fit, from your local dealer. From an independent around £200, but i would not accept anything other than VX or Gates Belts.
