Reasonably so. Check it occasionally and it will usually give you fair warning 
before catastrophic failure.  I have never had one crater on me on the road.  
Have usually noticed deterioration before failure.

Thanks for the lists, a pulley wasn't on mine.  It will be now.

Also, I remember Dan having a good list.

So it's an easy enough fix, and worth carrying a spare, but is failure of this 
part common?

There is an unspoken emergency kit that should be carried with you at all times.

1. fire extinguisher
2. belt
3. pulley ( yes I have had one just shatter)
4. shims
5. woodruff key
6. fire extinguisher (again)
7. accelerator cable
8. clutch cable
9. flares
10. cold beer

Other Vokies can probably add to the list, I am a fairly newbie and still don't 
know all the ins and outs.

I was told that as soon as the belt brakes or pulley goes out to pull over..no 
ands, if or buts about it. So I have just made that my rule of thumb.
