The BELLE experiment1 at KEKB has collected beam collision data from June 1st through August 4th, 1999, corresponding to an integrated luminosity of 25 pb-1, and the data contain approximately 10,000 e+e- → μ+μ- events and 50,000 hadronic events. Using those events, we study the performance of the endcap RPC modules in the BELLE detector. The study shows that the endcap RPC modules perform quite well in detecting muons and KL0 mesons.
