When you say a cut belt, are you meaning the width or the teeth? I have been thinking about cutting the width like we did for the s.w.

Randy, what are your thoughts on the gear adapter? What do you think it will do?

The cut belt is cutting every other tooth off. You don't want to thin these belts. It can kill them.

Never messed with the gear adapters, the stock spur gears are perfectly true so I dont see the need to run aftermarket gears which I have always found a bit out of round.

I've never thought of thinning this belt down but that might be something to try actually. I've got a couple spare HD's that I can test with so I'll try that on one of them and see what happens.

Before you cut an HD up, I need one for my new car and can't find them. What do you want for one?

I just cut one belt down to try. Every 2'nd and 3'rd tooth is cut so it should be ultra free. I'm going to try it sunday running a spool so we'll see if it skips.

i have tried cutting down the height of the teeth on the pully. i am still looking for a way to do it even and accuratly, if you can cut them nice and level i think it would help pretty well.

Well I just installed the new belt I just cut, binds like crap right now so we'll have to see what happens after it gets broken in on Sunday. I'll keep you guys updated on how it works, I'll run it with a 6 turn just to see how well it holds up.
