Aye! WD40 has kerosene in it, so if the belt is starting to go hard it will help the process of disintegration because it makes it a bit supple and more likely to bend than when it was dry. WD40 doesn't attack the rubber itself.. but if the belt is stiff and not flexing, the last thing it wants is something to make it flex against its will.
A failing belt is easily visible though, so no excuse I'm afraid. Peek down the side of the engine between the o/side wheel arch and you will see the inside of the belt run. If it has any cracks going transverserly across if (perpendicular to the sprocket grooves) then it's handed its notice in. Change it before it goes AWOL.
No bullets for Chaingun..
