While technically correct the G part means it is the cheaper of their two belts with the C being the better of the two since it is carbon fiber
That belt is a 11-14 XP 900 belt and a 14 XP 1000 belt part number, it would be ok as a back up and as mentioned, if you have to install in the field I would remove it and install a better one when you can.
Unfortunately we have had less than 5 failures with our belts and nearly 1500 sold and one of the guys commenting is one of the failures so his opinion won't be a good one for us and I get that.
Every belt has it's application and some do better at some activities than others and that sometimes is the trick to figure out.
As a matter of fact, that belt you have might actually perform and last if you only ran high speed for long periods of time due to the fact it is thin and dissipates heat well.
All belts by anyone fail at times, that is one thing we can count on.
Now that we have around 1500 belts out, a handful of folks with over 1000 miles and one I know over 1500 miles on our belts my opinion is pretty simple.
As good as OEM or better depending on the application, less money and has a warranty while limited is still a warranty where the OEM has none.
If you want to argue with that then you just want to argue!! LOL
