Does anyone know how many inches long serpentine belt [for all accessories] should be on '02 vulcan 6 cyl Uvin? I've found 3 different lengths of 85.4" long (oem: 1F1Z 8626-AB) 83.3" long (oem: 2F1Z 8620-AA); 81.5" long (oem:1F1Z 8620-BB) just with one dealer/manufacturer.
Don't want to wait until take it off, have to measure it, then order/buy it! I've searched since 2pm today and really would like to drive again SOMEDAY! Seems crazy can't find the correct info. The above site even had specifics like "182ci, VinU.." etc. Yet all different lengths.

Thanks in advance if someone could help!

These are Bando Belts. The 83.3" (model# 2115) states only fits '02 V6 vin U; the 81.5" L(model# 2070) says fits yrs 2002-2005 V6 vin U; while the 85.4" long (model# 2170)says fits yrs 1997-2007 V6 vin U and lists it as "Air Conditioning" Belt.
The Bando manuf CSR said they carried all 3 at Firestone, but FStone says they'll do the work for $175 Total but won't sell me the belt. The belt (model#2170) is the 85.4" long belt lists for $13 on RAuto. They will charge $75 for the belt in their installation. Wow. Local stores carry Continental, Dayco, etc. and same story on the lengths + about $15 more than shipping + part online RAuto. Lose $ ordering online if wrong size.

Here is a pic of the belt that fits any of my three VulcanTaurus, a 2006 and both of my 2001s I am thinking it is 85.5 inches. I bought a couple of these cheap as closeouts from RockAuto

Oh, you ROCK! Automender! Can't believe you did this! (No, really!) Takes time and the right equipment. (Lost my phone on the bus yesterday which cost more than all these parts and months waiting!) So THANK you so much!
Have 2 in the basket on RAuto and this is one of them.
