Sometimes it's age more than mileage, if your bike is 15 years old but only has 40k on it, I would probably change them, also if you don't really know the history of the bike it's good peace of mind just to change them.

I changed the timing belts on my 93 GL-1500A at 55,000 miles. I changed them because of the bikes age and one was starting to separate or delaminate, it was only a matter of time before it broke.

I just changed mine. '95 Aspy 30K; 15 years old. The consenses I found on internet:
80K or 8 years.
A couple of pointers: You do not have to disconnect any water hoses, dealing with the hot air carb heater hose, I removed the left engine guard and pulled the hose out of the way. I found getting the right slack setting on the new belts a little difficult. Timing no problem at all!
My old belts felt dead, but no wear appearent.

A little late but, the mileage/age is like asking which is the best oil. I have changed them from 40,000 to 92,500 and found each and everyone in excellent condition. Personally, I don't believe there is a correct answer. :confused:
If you are changing them yourself I would use either of the following. :)

Goodyear 40275
GatesT275
Napa 250275
Note that the same timing belts fit all GL1500 models from 1988-2000.
