Second attempt, since yesterday's post ended up in the classifieds section...

****
I am getting tired of my stretching primary chain and decided to go for a belt.
I want to run a 1.5" and keep my inner and outer primary tins.

- What brands do you guys recommend?
- What are ball park prices in the US for a kit? (I will be in the US later this month, so I was thinking of buying one over there if it's cheaper)
- Do I need to drill holes in the tins for cooling?

Thanks
-Marc

Go here:
http://www.techcycle.com/panheadkit.html

I know this is the panhead kit, but if you call them, they should fix you up with a taper shaft front pully for the kit, and the rest of the kit is the same from there on out. You can get an 1 1/2" kit.

I haven't been able to stump them yet on an oddball drive train combo for an electric starter kit, they always have the setup I need, and the parts are excellent.

Billy can get a little "rough" on the phone from time to time, but he's a good guy, and he knows his stuff.

Maybe vent the derby, and maybe the small inspection cover, but you should be OK at that with the tin primaries.

Thanks Rich, but I only see electric start kits ?
I'm just looking for a simple belt drive kit for a kicker set up (maybe I'm not looking right)

The "guys in the classifieds section" advised Primo...

My chain is not exactly maitenace free and keeps on stretching (even when it's well lubed). Soooo... time for some modern parts and less stains in the garage!

tech cycle has ALWAYS been good to me no matter what setup. i actually went there and they machined things for me on the spot to get things to work. even sent me home with extra parts in case 1 didnt work.
