Re: Build my own belt drive???

Here is some photos of my belt drive. We have a lot of these up here in NE. Fred Moore builds them up here. The key to keeping from wearing out the engine bearings is the belt is run loose enough to have about a 1/2 inch of movement in the end of the prop when the belt is warmed up. One of my friend...

Re: shipping out motorbikes

There is one other thing to think about and that is insurance. Most states have an in-transit rule that allows a period of time that you can drive a vehicle without putting a license on it. I am sure it is different per state. I would check with the dealer you are buying it from and let them do some...

Re: Anybody ride in Western IA?

Yes there is some stuff in the water down by Louisville I have been told. The water has been down this year so we have been getting under the RR bridge. Every one calls it the green river bridge. The big thing to watch up at highway 64 ramp is their rules as they will tow a vehicle up there.
