Maintaining whitewall tires is a nightmare!
GREASE ON YOUR REAR WHEEL, RIM OR HUB FROM THE FINAL DRIVE!
Beautiful whitewalls and your clean bike stays that way...
chain efficiency is approx. 80% when new, and deteriorates
throughout it's life.
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)
drives are very noisy, especially as they wear.
Belt Drive is nearly silent!
