When your Gen 1 R52 R53 MINI Cooper S gets into the higher miles, or you're installing a new Supercharger pulley, it's time to
start thinking about replacing your belts. If you're
installing a smaller supercharger pulley you will need a smaller belt to
reduce the slack and allow the belt tensioner to work properly. Gates belts are used by MINI as their OEM belt supplier and trusted
in racing conditions due to their high quality design.
We recommend the Gates K060535 belt when upgrading to a 15% or 17% supercharger pulley. The Gates #K060547 belt is 1/4" or 1404mm and is the Gen 1 MINI Cooper S OEM belt. Gates belt
#K060535 is 1379mm and works with both a 15% or 17% pulley. The Gates belt#K060539 is 1385mm and works with the 15% or 17% supercharger pulley with a 2% crank pulley.
Fits the following MINI models:
R52 2004-2008 Convertible Cooper S
R53 2002-2006 Hatchback Cooper S
