yeah, im learning all about it today. but most importantly, the shop that (has been highly recommended by riders in the area) does not recommend another belt. on his recommendation Im going back to chain, all for 250.00. I have to agree. mucking with the engineering as designed is probably not the best course of action. also the tires are dry rotted, so theres 250.
its been a great, although expensive learning experience for me. I bought a bike on ebay without truly researching it, and the test ride was too short. I should have walked away. Its ok, I can be stupid once, not twice. Ill end up with a 3,000 800 with 17k miles, vance and hines exhaust, k&N air filter, new sprockets and chain, fully adjusted and inspected. its very clean so there's that. whatever. live and learn. thanks for all the help so far.
