yes removing wheel as well as swingarm is necessary to install, for me a belt is hands down best, see on different forums guys replacing chains as lo as 10,000 miles, regular lubing at 200 miles is recommended lube warm chain let bike set overnight so most of lube does not go on rear wheel + tire, adj chain again + again as it wears IMO its a no brainer add labor cost of replacing chain and sprockets if you do not do it, i am glad scootworks stepped up to make a belt for my bonnie, theres a reason some sites list sold out, best $$$ spent along with seat + bitubo shocks IMO i will post a pic of my clean shiny wheel and belt drive when i learn how
I glad its no brainer to go belt drive for you. I am curious...are you selling belt drives...or is the above the line they sold you to buy one. I hope you have some "warm" lube ready when your stuck in the middle of nowhere when your Roadside Assitance tows you to the nearest bike shop and the repairmen tells you it will be a week for the belt and $$$$ for labor. At this moment you will wish you had a chain.
Is the scootdrive beltdrive gear ratio similar to the 43t rear/18t front or is there any difference to it
I love my 43/19 sprocket with chain but if I go the belt route do they make something similar to this
thats what it says on the site but then when I spoke to them he said it is more of 42/18
He told me 43/19 ratio is 1:2.26 and this belt drive falls between 43/18 stock to 43/19
Can anyone confirm this if you running the belt on your bike & how it has changed your ride compared to the stock.
have you experience more top end? & less vibes by doing belt?
