How high are the Mugen engine mounts?
What's the diameter of the FW-05 flywheel? - the FW-05 uses the same 3D clutch, otherwise, yeah?

It seems to me we actually need a longer side belt - maybe a job for Course-R.

Thoughts?
I would not worry about the belt rubbing. Mine rubbed for over 1 year without failure. With the 25T pulley the rubbing is even less.

The stock V1RR mounts are 17mm (I think) the kawahara V1RR mounts are 14mm (and they cause rubbing on the 27T pulley) and the Mugen mounts are 13.5mm (approx).

The FW05R clutch is identical except for a 33mm flywheel (which is required for the lower mounts). I would not recomend getting the Mugen mounts unless you feel like cutting the chassis as the bell rubs. Note that the 5 star lightened bell does NOT rub as it appears to be marginally smaller.

You will really notice a difference in these mods. The throttle response on the 5 star bell is quite stunning if you use the lightened 3 racing flywheel as well. I actually thought that the motor was faulty initially as it just sounded "off". You will notice a rear grip increase as well as you are lowering the engine 18% and shaving nearly 30% off the rotating mass of the clutch assembly.

This all sounds really great. I will give it a try by scavanging the flywheel from my Fw-05R and the optional engine mounts I got for it.

No, the one way at RR cannot be used at Evo. However, the conversion kit includes a new one way.

. . yes.
I nearly answered one from two pages back myself.

Thanks for the info. AMG, dtm and Manti - sounds good.
I guess I'll start with the FW-05R mounts and go from there.

Well I do, but everyone seems to think it's OK.

What about this then:
Move the mid block back 1mm - I reckon there's enough slop in the front belt to do it and it might kill two birds with one stone.

No no - re-engineer the mid block.

. . . or talk to Corse-R about a 376 side belt.
