One of the only belt conversion kits I've found runs ~$800, so it wouldn't be a cheap endeavor. Actually, since it came up: anyone have any experience running belt drives? I've talked to two guys locally, and they said they've seen problems with eating belts within a short amount of miles. How's the durability compared to a chain?
I have no exp. w/ a belt, but the bmw salespeople say they're more reliable than chains. No idea if that's true.
Finally did a tail chop along with mounting new aluminum turn signals (as opposed to the stock chromed plastic ones): I think it looks pretty decent. I will rig up some sort of "fender" to help keep spray from the underside of the seat etc.
My new Vespa..... So I traded in the flame job one and have just gotten this back (straight swap with a mate who restores them).... A few things to go with it...firstly it needs a rack at the back for mounting spare wheel, a couple of badges (Vespa and Saigon Scooter Center) but I also want to give it a little something to kinda make it pop...at the moment thinking about a racing stripe in silver across the front and on the side panels, but not quite decided yet...any ideas welcome.
