Hmm.. Just discovered that my M2 Cyclone has 2 teeth missing from the belt.
Any ideas on the best place to get a new one?

Thanks

Is it worth considering a chain conversion?

no cush drive rubber in the rear wheel
so if you go chain, the shock goes direct to the gearbox
also it can rub on the swing arm

Well, I changed the belt and the rear isolators on the Cyclone.

Took me about 3 hours, but I took my time, and tried not to make any mistakes.
In fact the whole job was easier than I thought it was going to be.

The only part that was a bit of a pain was removing the rear hugger - the Torx fasteners are right in-line with the rear peg frame loops. I ended up using ratchet straps to compress the suspension so I could remove them.

Just need it to stop raining now........
