Just out of Nowra. Showing off chucking a wheelie in the wet.

Got lucky, old school Harley shop came and rescued us and had a Sporty belt (208??) belt in stock. Wondering if it's the same as the Buell one or not as strong?? Done some mad monos anyway so it's holding together thus far..

.....belt might have been too loose (Maz........)

Hey Krusty, Firstly, there is no post count anymore....so everyone is equal in this new communist forum!! :lol: As for the belt, I am pretty sure there isnt a difference between a Sporty Belt or Tuber belt. As for belt being too loose, I would be VERY surprised if that would cause the belt to snap, I am pretty sure you would notice the belt jumping before it would snap, I remember Maz telling me about an article where Erik ran a belt so slack that you could pull it off the rear pulley and it ran no probs :) There MIGHT be a difference between Tuber and XB belts but again, I don't know :!: :?: HTH

8-)
