Comparison of Chain Drive vs. Our Belt Drive

CHAIN DRIVE BELT DRIVE
Requires lubrication every 600 miles No lubrication required

Always has backlash, even when adjusted correctly.

No final drive induced backlash, even when accelerating or decelerating.

Requires replacement of chain & sprockets @10,000-20,000 miles (depending on maintenance). Average cost is $300 plus labor (average $150 in most bike shops) Total $450.

Our Belt Drive cost is ~$470-$530, a much more cost effective replacement when the life span of the belt, the lack of maintenance time, lubrication, and cleaning are considered. Life of drive belt estimated at 3-4 times that of an average chain. Many customers are over 50k miles as of this writing. Pulleys do not require replacement from normal wear. Replacement belt is less than $60.

If chain breaks, it can knot, causing damage to your engine, or even worse, can lock up your rear wheel.

If the belt breaks, it just comes off. Replacement of the belt is very inexpensive (see above).

Constantly cleaning grease and grime from your rear wheel, rim and hub. Maintaining whitewall tires is a nightmare!

NO MORE GREASE ON YOUR REAR WHEEL, RIM OR HUB FROM THE FINAL DRIVE! Beautiful whitewalls and your clean bike stays that way... CLEAN!

Typical chain efficiency is approx. 80% when new, and deteriorates throughout it's life.

Typical belt efficiency is approx. 98%. Due to change of pulley ratios, the engine RPMs are reduced by 11%. This resulted in an increase of gas mileage by approx. 14% on our test bikes. The reduction in RPM's for a '95 or early '96 model will be greater...approx. 23%! (The early models used a 16t front and 46t rear sprocket)

Chain drives are very noisy, especially as they wear.

Our Belt Drive is nearly silent!
