ya I would dump the belt and install sprockets and chain, the belt drive on your bike might be a Scootworks monstra belt drive, I had that on my '02 800 bike and broke/snapped 2 belts. I mean that's not safe because let's say you're on a nice long trip somewhere and having a great time and then you snap the belt, man you're screwed, I mean with a chain at least the nearest Yamaha or Suzuki or Honda bike shop can help but a belt, no way. The belts on the 800's are not strong enough for the torque. Edit: I just thought of my remark on not being safe with a belt. When I snapped my belt 1st time, I was accelerating passing a truck on the highway and snap, lost the belt and there I was half-way past the truck in the other lane, I was going fast enough that I coasted right infront of the truck and to a stop on the shoulder, I was lucky that truck slowed down and didn't hit me from behind. Talk about unsafe.
