The drive pulleys are plastic. Is there a metal set I can get?
Also what about the clutch in the 2 speed gearbox? This is also plastic and looks like it needs to be stronger.
I'm a bit over hop up's, but anything that stiffens up the area between the top plate and the rear end is probably good - a graphite "Y" brace and a brace under the exhaust. Some lightened drive train bits are good - depends how far you want to go. Having said that, we do have lots of shiny things
but some of them exhibit a dubious return on investment.
But IMHO, forget the alloy pulleys - they can tend to sharpen themselves and they're heavy.
I think you'll find the 2 speed clutch is just fine.
