Belt snapped today, bugger! (and no I don't have an expanding waistline!)

Still every cloud has a silver lining and I could use this as an opportunity to change the gearing to make it a little more lively on the acceleration front. However, I can not stomach the £500+ for the trojan horse solution. Is there a more wallet friendly alternative? Standard XB12 pulleys? My rear pulley is the 72T and the front is standard to the best of my knowledge.

Can I change things around, what have others done, is it worth it? Would all options use the same belt length? Is genuine the best option for the replacement belt?

I dont want to put a new belt on now only to find out that I need a different one if I later change the pulleys.

All that is really important right now is getting back on the road as soon as possible.

Thanks in advance.

Best fitting a standard belt and changing the primary drive to XB9 for better acceleration.

You cant swap them round.......the rear pulley just wont fit on the output shaft, I think the top end would be a lil too slow to :!: lOl
